The Lovin’ Sound (LSP LS 1001) 1974? Canada *




Acceptable home-made folk album from Canadian Catholic male/female folk troupe. Mix of religious and secular songs, skipping around from short liturgical folk refrains to covers of Ray Repp and Sebastian Temple to standards like ‘Where Have All The Flowers Gone’, ‘Blowing In The Wind’ and ‘Follow Me’. Also the Olivia Newton-John song ‘Let Me Be There’ converted over to ‘Let Him Be There’. A competent recording, even if it can be somewhat simple, straightforward and generic. Backing the group’s harmonies are 6 and 12-string acoustic guitars, electric bass, harmonica and percussion Ten or thirteen members, depending on whether you go by the photo or the credits. From St. Mary of the People Parish in Oshawa, Ontario.    (The Archivist, 4th Edition by Ken Scott).
