Sound Of Joy (Birdwing/Messianic BWR 2025) 1979



Smooth male/female folk/praise ensemble doing solemn minor-key songs with a Jewish flavor ala Lamb (which should come as no surprise since Lamb members Joel Chernoff and Rick “Levi” Coghill are both involved). Peppy songs along with a few ballads, carried along by stirring vocal arrangements. A rather mellow project, but can strike a pretty moment here and there, especially on the slower numbers. Members of the group Glad provide keyboards, bass and drums, while Coghill supplies the guitars. Hebrew lyrics on some of the songs. Directed by Joe Finkelstein. “Kol Simcha” means “sound of joy”. File with Liberated Wailing Wall and Israelight. (The Archivist by Ken Scott, 4th Edition).
