Pioneers in gospel rock the Art Reynolds Singers "Jesus Is Just Alright" comes from the 1966 album "Tellin' It Like It Is". Gary Paxton of Skip and Flip, Hollywood Argyles and production fame was the producer of record on this release.

The Doobie Brothers heard a version by The Byrds and when the Doobies second album came out in 1972, "Toulouse Street", well that's where you'll find the top forty hit.
