How Can I Keep From Singing (Burwood Music  NRS 179-1) 1974



Don’t see a band name mentioned anywhere on this homemade lp from an I’d guess Catholic male folk foursome. They have a very nice layered mellow melodic acoustic sound with gentle sincere vocals and just the right sampling of synthesizer, mellotron and flute. Appealing amateur warmth throughout and plenty of beautiful strong tracks. Some fine acoustic guitar and 12-string work, often joined with dreamy melancholy moods as heard on the excellent ‘Come Close, You Hallowed’, ‘O Lord, Teach Us To Love’ and ‘On That Day’. A few brief liturgical arrangements begin side two. Title is taken from the old Quaker hymn that opens the album. Other covers include ‘And I Will Raise Him Up’ and ‘We’ve Been To The Mountain’. Doesn’t say where they’re from, but there’s a thanks to the Saint Meinrad College Music Department. (The Archivist, 4th Edition by Ken Scott).
