Basics (MGMA 6) 1972?

















This folk outfit appears to be another name for the Iowa group Sonfolk, as they’re from the same fellowship (Zion Lutheran Church in Clear Lake) and follow an identical format -of fifty singing youths accompanied by acoustic guitars and tambourine. The Sonfolk lps aren’t any big deal either, although I could usually extract one worthwhile solo performance. That’s not the case here, as the whole gang sings on every flippin’ track Includes standard rudimentary unison renderings of ‘Blind Man’, ‘To Be Alive’, ‘For Those Tears’, ‘You Can Tell The World’, Larry Norrnan’s ‘I Love You’ and the like. Listed here mainly to complete the Sonfolk history and cuz it has a really cool primitive b&w cover art of Jesus with his arms outstretched.   (The Archivist, 4th edition by Ken Scott).
