Through Any Storm  (RCR  10095)  1969

 

Optimists, The - Through Any Storm

Another worthwhile collection of folk songs, including covers of  ‘I Know Where I’m Going’, ‘Wayward Wind’, ‘Sinner Man’, ‘This Little Light Of Mine’, and ‘Get Together’.  A few originals among the sixteen selections (‘Flickering Flame’, ‘Talk To Me’, ‘Does It Seem Possible?’, ‘the title  track).  Warm natural harmonies over simple acoustic backing.  Nice moody edge to some of the songs. Can’t help but love those matching red shirts.  From Ridgeway Mennonite Church in Harrisonburg, Virginia.      (The Archivist, 4th edition by Ken Scott).
