Sing Praise (FEL 282) 1968
Repp went electric and added a beat with Sing Praise which includes mostly re-interpretations of earlier tunes. ‘Sons Of God’ receives playful electric action; ‘Allelul’ gets a twinge of bouncy organ; ‘What A Great Thing It Is’ twangs along with a touch of rockabilly; ‘I Lift Up My Eyes’ rests in easy soft-jazz arrangements; ‘Hear, O Lord’ basks in mellow strings. Other songs remain in a simple ﬂute-backed acoustic format. Some of the songs employ light-hearted male/female harmonies, while others just have Repp singing solo. Only two new songs: ‘Look Out Your Window’ and ‘It’s A Sign Of Love’. Still a folk album at heart (and a fairly basic one at that), but with slightly more consistent results than his prior efforts.
