Blessed Weakness (NFCLC  PAS-753383)  1975

 

 

Lovely dreamy acoustic folkrock custom from St. Louis male/female sextet that is at times spellbinding, like the guitar/recorder instrumental ‘Prelude’ or the haunting stratospheric harmonies of Peggie Telscher and guest John Foley that grace ‘Psalm 65-66’. coustic guitars, often 12-string, lead the way backed by electric bass and percussion through first-rate samplings of jangly Jesus music and melodic ballads. Some of the prettiest female vocals you’ll ever hear, particularly on ‘Where You Would Not Go’ and ‘Under The Willow’. One example of carefree pop-minded folk (‘Happy To Be Alive’), one a cappella number (‘Jesus Round’) and one banjo/fiddle hoe down diversion (the intriguingly titled ‘Jesus Save The Popcorn’). Nice periodic guitar leads and one-shot appearances of piano, electric guitar, organ, trumpet and violin. Sponsored by the National Federation Of Christian Life Communities.    (The Archivist, 4th edition by Ken Scott).
