Bring Back The Springtime (Pilgrim 408) 1976 UK *


The Genesis Bring Back the Springtime front


Mellow and smooth country folk troupe from Northern Ireland.  Fairly ordinary but strengthened by the pleasant vibrato in Mary McKee’s lovely vocals.  Simple arrangements with assistance from members of Parchment.  Heavy country gospel influence.  At their best with up-tempo gently-strummed numbers like ‘Fill My Cup’ and ‘Life’s Railway To Heaven’.  Others like the Gaither’s ‘The King Is Coming’ don’t fare as well in the folk transcription.  Country versions of songs by Garth Hewitt, Jimmy Owens, Danny Lee, Annie Herring, and Gary Paxton.  Overall not earth-shattering – just peaceful and enjoyable.  (The Archivist by Ken Scott, 4th Edition).

Thanks Leif for sharing this music.

I have added the pictures for the In Nashville album.
