The Foundation (United Sound USR-5987) 1973


Foundation, The


Twelve-member amateur co-ed folk outfit with a gentle acoustic style on their home-made lp. A simple appealing sound featuring sincere harmonies humbly backed by acoustic guitar, with an occasional harmonica or tambourine. Mostly group vocals, along with periodic solo singing. Fifteen original songs with titles like ‘Put Your Faith’, ‘Awake O Sleeper’, ‘Vanity’, ‘Strength And Stronghold’, ‘Hopeless Situation’ and ‘Quiet Trumpet’. ‘Communion Song’ adds lead guitar, electric bass and percussion, making for an especially strong selection that rises to the level of a God Unlimited or Guitar Ensemble. A ministry of the Cornerstone Coffee-house at Church Of The Good Shepherd in Bonita, California. (The Archivist, 4th edition by Ken Scott).
