Come Alive (FEL 7301-M) 1967
Come Alive has a similar format to Allelu! – a male/female vocal ensemble (the Saint Louis Singers), Repp on lead vocals, and backing from guitars, banjo, bass and ﬂute. Included here is the Jesus people crossover ‘I Am The Resurrection’, one of his most popular songs. Other familiar titles are ‘Into Your Hands’, ‘To Be Alive’ and ‘Peace, My Friends’. As with Allelu./, the better selections are the ones where the vocal ensemble takes a break, namely ‘How Long, 0 Lord’, ‘We Need Time’ and ‘Sing Out, My Soul’, all of which are worthwhile Repp solo performances. Subtitled Contemporary Ecumenical Folk Songs. Two different covers exist. (The Archivist, 4th edition by Ken Scott).
