The Scarlet Thread II (Sulyn AV 1612) 1980

 

The Scarlet Thread front

 

The group’s second album continues with pleasant  mellow male/female folk sounds of the Ellis & Lynch, Take Three and Gamble Folk variety.  A simple format that gracefully backs the foursome’s gentle harmonies with 6 and 12-string acoustic guitars, piano and electric bass.  Additional instruments turn up where needed: electric piano softens ‘Psalm 84’, while steel guitar brings a light air to ‘Romans 6’ and ‘Philippians 4’.  I especially liked the dreamy delicate closing ballad ‘When I See Him’.  All original songs, most based on passages out of the King James Bible.   (The Archivist by Ken Scott, 4th Edition).

 

 

Thanks John for this music.  Thank you discogs for the label and rear cover photos.
