Reflection On Hymns Of Our Time (Refection RL 303) 1971 UK *

On Hymns Of Our Time front

Another fine example of ’60’s British Jesus folk with strong electric presence. Electric guitar, organ, bass and drums energize a number of titles, including ‘God Of Concrete’, ‘When The Mood Of The Music Changes’ (there’s a hint of ‘Louie Louie’ in there), ‘Everywhere I Go’ and ‘Bread In The Wilderness’. Moods vary from jangly electric ‘Feed Us Now’ and ‘Hanging On A Tree’ to the melodic Beatlesque treatment of ‘Lord, Make Me Love’ to the “explosive joy” of ‘Let The Cosmos Ring’. Opens with a robust cover of ‘They’ll Know We Are Christians’, one of the few songs I recognized. Also some beautiful ballads in ‘Be At Every Family Table’, ‘I Don’t Know Where I Am Going’ and ‘Shalom’, the latter two with attractive flute accompaniment. Fifteen songs in all. (<The Archivist by Ken Scott, 4th Edition).
