Almost…..Live (Track Eight TE 012) 1980
Electric country-folk trio of Dave Reuter, John Harper and Sharon Harper. Good lean yet clear sound featuring relaxed guy/gal harmonies backed solely by a fluid trio of acoustic guitar, electric bass and electric guitar. The latter is periodically endowed with cool wah-wah effects, a couple times bringing to mind a leaner more laid-back Joyful Noise Electric Gospel. Some decent upbeat rural folk-rocking moves (‘Whatever The Reason’, ‘I Know’), a touch of boogie on ‘Suppertime’ and ‘I’ll Hide Away’, nearing rockabilly territory on ‘Saved, Saved, Saved’. Other selections are slow-n-easy, like ‘We’ve So Much To Thank God For’, a medley of hymns and covers of ‘Father I Adore You’ and ‘Say I Do’ (the electric guitar takes a break on some of these). Custom job from South Carolina. Dave was also a member of New Folk, the group that recorded Country Faith on the Impact label. (The Archivist, 4th edition by Ken Scott).
A special thank you to Chuck for providing the music.
