I Want To Shout Jesus! (Spirit Of God Songs 8008-1001) 1982
Brian Kamstra and Jim Sylvester have a catchy cutting-edge ‘70s folky singer/songwriter style similar to Seals & Crofts. Christian male duos can often tend toward a smooth and smanny sound, but these guys have gotten around that with their natural harmonies and simple well-arranged melodic blend of acoustic and electric guitars, piano, synthesizer, bass and drums. Standouts include ‘So Little Time’, ‘Plastic Bubbles’, the beautiful ballad ‘Come To Me’ and the dynamic minor-key ‘He Did It All For Me’. Most songs have the keyboards/guitar mix, the one exception being the brisk ‘Everybody’s Searchin’ which sticks with just the acoustic guitars. Custom record from South Holland, Illinois.
