Sing Life, Sing Love (Pilgrim JLP 164) 1969 UK *

 

British folksinger joined here by a small combo providing a light beat along with guitar, organ, piano, and bass.  Bio on the back cover says he spent time in a beat group (The Liverpool Raiders, see EP section) before connecting with folks in the UK Jesus music scene including some of the Reflection gang.  Lewis has a particular love for Sydney Carter, covering five of his songs here.  Also four Lewis originals including the title track (which he also performed on the Reflection label’s Hosanna: A Portrait Of Us All) and my personal favorite ‘Dazzling New And Super You’.  Also renditions of ‘Kumbaya’, ‘Love Is Come Again’, ‘My Neighbour’, fifteen songs in all.     (The Archivist, 4th edition by Ken Scott).
