Thoughts Of Time (World Library FR-2104-SM) 1971?

 

The back cover describes the style of this 3-guy 3-gal outfit as “folk type ballad and contemporary rhythm”.  I call it a hauntingly beautiful collection of moody acoustic, back cover describes the style of this 3-guy 3-gal outfit as “folk type ballad and contemporary rhythm”.  I call it a hauntingly beautiful collection of moody acoustic melodies alongside some fun electric-with-a-beat ’60s folkrock, all lead by fragile mesmerizing female vocals, even rounded out with a few psych touches ((like the ethereal tremolo effects on the stunning ‘God Is Alive’).  Indeed, this is a very moving and penetrating sound that I’m more accustomed to find among the best of the UK folk scene.  Possessed by a lovely amateur warmth  — I especially  enjoy the slightly-out-of-tune electric guitars.  Fifteen selections in all, some of the titles being ‘Beauty Is’, ‘Playground For People’, ‘I’m Living — I’m Living’, ‘Creation’, ‘Hard Time Smiling’, ‘Hope Is Finding Him’ and ‘People Ask Me’.  ‘Look To Your Soul’ even has an upbeat All Saved Freak Band feel.  I count numerous World Library albums among my favorites, but this is hands down the best, quite unlike anything else on the label.   (The Archivist by Ken Scott, 4th Edition).
