Up With People

I'm sure the US folks can fill us in with more details about Up With People. While pretty much unknown in the UK this clean cut, god fearing bunch are well known in the US, taking their brand of positive squeaky clean, bland music to a huge audience through events such as the superbowl (they were spoofed a superbowl episode of the Simpsons as "Hooray for Everything").

While the majority of their output is to be avoided like the plague, this s/t LP from 1970 contains some nice groovy pop, including some unpexpected fuzz on A New Dimension.
