Jack Ely Of “Louie Louie” Fame Releases New Full-Length Record, “Love Is All Around You Now”

The original lead singer of the Kingsmen, Jack Ely (pronounced e-lee), has released his most recent LP album, a modern gospel record called “Love Is All Around You Now.” The record includes thirty six minutes of spirit-filled music from one of rock ‘n roll’s most influential rockers. “Love Is All Around You Now” is free from all pretense, every lyric penned with obvious earnestness and passion for the underlying meaning and mission. Composed with the complexity and humble intellectuality that characterizes much of the music written in the nineteen-sixties, some of the tracks on “Love Is all Around…” sound like folk anthems not unlike the best of Dylan or Baez, while others sound more like psalms of praise and worship no music listener will be surprised to hear in progressive churches even thirty years from now.

The record is not-at-all without backbone, however, which should not surprise fans of Ely himself, whose fame is largely garnered from the unstoppable, legendary classic rock single, “Louie, Louie,” recorded by his original band, the Kingsmen, in 1963. The record has elements of funk, as in the fourth track, “Since the First Time I Touched His Hem” (an allusion to Biblical miracles worked by Christ when afflicted persons reached out to touch his robe), as well as elements of groove, as in the title track, “Love Is All Around…,” and there are – naturally – elements of low, low-down blues rock, as in “See the Light.”

Each track is infused with the best gospel attributes, including a chorus of impeccable female background singers, an accompanying piano tastefully played upon, and guitar work that would do well in the most hardcore jazz band, but the track that will doubtlessly turn the most heads is the closing single, “Dare Ya to Love Him,” a modern disco-techno-danceclub song that is every bit as catchy as Madonna’s latest hit, but performed with the righteousness of God well-in-mind.

All in all, the record is a comprehensive and widely varied one, but its message strays not an iota from start to finish, and if God is listening, then surely He will find in Jack Ely a perfect bard and messenger of the gospel of Jesus of Nazareth. Long live rock ‘n roll.
