Free To Fly (Dovetail DOVE 16) 1975 UK *

 

 

 

 
This lovely British folk/praise ensemble has caught the attention of a lot of collectors, vinyl hounds no doubt seeking respite from overexposure to psych and hard rock mania. Cloud has a strong classical complement of flute, violin, cello and recorder that together with the 12-string framework, gorgeous solo vocals and heavenly harmonization of the eighteen singers produces a deeply moving meditative quality that carries the listener away straight into aural nirvana. ‘I Feel I Want To Fly’, ‘I Will Lift Up My Eyes’, ‘Come Bless The Lord’ and ‘Search Me’ are all intensely beautiful stirring songs that set high standards for the genre. Miles above the bland muzak that much of the UK folk/praise scene would eventually evolve into. Most all of the songs were written by Phil Lawson Johnston, one of the group’s guitarists and singers. Produced by John Pantry. (Ken Scott – Archivist).
