Gentle Faith (Maranatha HS-027) 1976



Gentle Faith is the band where rocker Darrell Mansfield got his start in Christian music. Joining Darrell on harmonica and lead vocals for this Jesus rock classic are Don Gerber (acoustic guitar, banjo, mandolin), Henry Cutrona (bass, lead vocals, acoustic guitar), Paul Angers (drums) and Steve Kara (electric guitar, bass, mandolin).  Lots of good spirited rural Jesus music in the classic Maranatha tradition, including the rocker’ Living In The Sonshine’ and the banjo hoe-downers ‘The Whole Lump Of Dough’ and ‘Noah’.  Slows a tad for some bluesy dobro honky-tonkin’ on ‘Goin’ Back Home’.  Also noteworthy for ‘Jerusalem’, a stirring solemn string-orchestrated ballad with a great electric guitar solo that was chosen to open Maranatha 5.      (The Archivist by Ken Scott, 4th Edition).
