Sweet Revival (Proclaim/Rite PSLP 1163) 1973
Five-person girl/guy outfit from Des Moines, Iowa with simple appealing folk style on their self-made record. Usually female vocals in the spotlight, backed by acoustic guitar, bass, piano and ﬂute. A few of the song selections lean toward traditional hymns and gospel, sounding even more traditional when the piano is added. More often though it’s the folk format that presides, enabling the group’s charm to shine through on original selections like ‘Sweet Revival’, ‘Free’, ‘A Simple Song Of Jesus’ and the stirring ‘Lord Of My Life’, as well as covers of Love Song’s ‘Two Hands’ and Jamie Owens’ ‘May I Introduce You To A Friend’. B&W cover photo adding to the local vibe. (The Archivist, 4th edition by Ken Scott).
