Autumn Life (Crisis/Advent Star ASC 1) 1980 UK *
Attractive fragile understated folk custom of ten original songs from male/female black British foursome. Gentle sincere harmonies, typically accompanied by just acoustic guitars, bass and on occasion soﬂ background synthesizer. That delicate characteristic UK folk charm can be found permeating beautiful dreamy ballads like ‘I Will Set You Free’, ‘You’re My Friend’ and the title track. Also some appealing strummed selections like ‘Turning Point’, ‘Good Samaritan’ and ‘Prodigal (The Leaving)’. One lesser song backed solely by piano (‘Reason To Live’) and one a cappella piece (‘End—time Generation’). Would not have been at all out of place on the Proﬁle label. (The Archivist, 4th edition by Ken Scott).
I have not acquired this album yet. Thank you Laura for the track list and Brian for showing me were to find the rear cover photo.
