Little Grain of Wheat (Greentree R3382) 1976

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Lovely delicate folk quintet with soft 12-string acoustic sound coupled  with warm floating male/female harmonies , revealing the gentle soothing style heard on Suncast’s In Touch Again.  Dreamy production brings out the fragile beauty of songs like ‘Jesus Is Coming Soon’ , ‘And I Know’, ‘He’s Walked That Way Before’, ‘Jesus Is All I Need’ and ‘Better Things’.   Sporadically enhanced with such instruments as flute, recorder and harmonica.  ‘Let Go And Let God’ and ‘I Just Want To Be With My Lord’ are enjoyable diversions into mellow banjo bluegrass.  No strings either!  Ten original songs, the song-writing shared by members David Nelson and John Walsh.  A wonderful exception to the contemporary gospel format usually associated with the Greentree label.    (The Archivist, 4th edition by Ken Scott).
