Grass Roots Music (Light LS-5745) 1978
Bands like Gentle Faith, Kentucky Faith, and even Petra had all included a few bluegrass tunes on their lps. Zion Mountain Folk gives ya a whole album full, with plenty of fast acoustic guitar, banjo, mandolin, ﬁddle, and harmonica. Not as rootsy as most true mountain music outﬁts, but the playing is proﬁcient, the harmonies are folksy and the arrangements are simple, resulting in a friendly natural bluegrass/Jesus—music combination that’s impossible not to like. Thirteen original down-home compositions, including such titles as ‘Bigger Picture Of Jesus’, ‘Midnight Rambler’, ‘Thank You For My Wife’, ‘Humble Annie’ and ‘Feared Of The Lord’. The trio consists of Stephen Smith, Harry Browning and Ruth Smith, assisted on this recording by three others. By the way, they’re from Hawaii where they ministered for Youth With A Mission. See also Psalms. (The Archivist, 4th edition by Ken Scott).
