Return Sweet Gentle Dove (Sharing SC 011) 1980 UK *








Thompson, Bryan & Violet - Return Sweet Gentle Dove







UK male/female folk custom that packs a decent amount of charm despite the obvious primitive low-budget constraints. Very much a British folk sound, with acoustic guitars in the forefront, plus electric bass and periodic synthesizer. Drums are in there as well providing an occasional rock beat. The harmonies aren’t always perfectly on key, but the sincerity is most definitely there. The cheap quirky synthesizer is kind of fun as it perks up tracks like ‘Turn Around And Face The Sun’, ‘I See A Star’ and ‘Thank You Lord’. Features twelve songs, strummed upbeat numbers as well as delicate ballads, all written by Brian. Small home-grown UK Christian label with ties to the Sharon People. (The Archivist, 4th edition by Ken Scott).

I have not acquired this album yet. Thank you Donald for the track list.
