Charity  (Gospel Jubilee  FM75011)  1975

 

 

Another class act in the homemade soft jangly guy/gal electric folkrock department that you can proudly file next to The Bridge (with whom they share a similar sound). Dreamy acoustic atmospheres are overlaid with flute and recorder, precious ethereal female harmonies and attractive electric guitar leads, including a few friendly fuzz and other effects here and there. Indeed I wouldn’t be surprised to see some listeners classify this as “folk/psych”. Effective shimmering moody presence throughout, whether strummed folkrock tunes, gentle finger picked songs, slow stirring ballads, plugged-in rural-edged tracks or spoken word over guitar. ‘Rejoice God’s Children’, ‘River Jordan’, ‘A Prayer Of David’, ‘John 1:1-14’, ‘Dear Heavenly Father’. Nine original songs in all, plus a cover of Kenn Gulliksen’s ‘Charity’. Three guys and two girls from El Cajon, California, on the same label as fellow Californians Soul Purpose. Excellent cover too – a colored pencil ocean scene with breaking wave and image of Christ in the clouds. I’m touched.     (The Archivist by Ken Scott, 4th Edition).
