Beyond A Song (Grapevine GRV 111) 1977 UK *
Delightful co-ed folk-rock troupe from Northern Ireland with a touch of Celtic through use of mandolin, ﬂute, tin whistle, bodhran, and what sounds like a hammer dulcimer (not to mention the usual assortment of guitars). Delicate sound with warm harmonies, not completely rustic throughout, but not wholly commercial either. You might catch yourself doing a jig or something on the lively ‘Song To Sing’ and ‘Joy For My Sorrow’. Some friendly fuzz guitar on ‘He’s Everything’, ‘Park Bench’ and ‘Dancin’ to keep things on the cutting edge. ‘Endless Corridor’ hauntingly glides along to an ethereal minor-key mood. All songs composed by Salt. Produced by John Pantry. (The Archivist, 4th edition by Ken Scott).
