The Ascension Four (Van Diemen VDR-039) 1971? Australia *

 

 

Ascension Four, The

 

From Australia come Cheryl, Kevin, Michael and Janine, otherwise known as The Ascension Four. They play and harmonize in a simple ‘60s 12-string guitar-backed folk style altemating original songs with standards like ‘Day Is Done’, ‘Speak To The Sky’, ‘Teach Your Children’, ‘Can It Be True?’, ‘All My Trials’ and ‘Bridge Over Troubled Waters’. ‘What Will Your Answer Be?’, ‘The Seeker Of Men’ and ‘Triumph Over Calvary’ are some of the self-written titles. Also a Cowsills cover, ‘In Need Of A Friend’. Drums are in there frequently putting a beat behind the guitars. Kevin’s low voice is kind of odd – is it my imagination or does he almost sound like a didgeridoo? All four were members of Devonport Baptist Church. A custom album produced by Tasmanian Christian Enterprises.     (The Archivist, 4th edition by Ken Scott).
