The lost album

According to John Pac's sleeve notes on Simply Parchment, the band made a third album with Pye that was never released. Pac says he has tried without success to trace the master tracks.

The album would have come between Hollywood Sunset and Shamblejam. We can only speculate what Parchment classics have been lost for ever. Presumably some of the songs ended up on Shamblejam. Would it have included the mini-masterpiece single You Were on My Mind which did not find its way on to an album until the release of the Simply Parchment compilation last year?

It must be one of gospel music's greatest mysteries.
