Sing A New Song (Ray Lauver RL-153) 1972?
The electric guitars and drums were set aside on this recording, resulting in a folkier acoustic sound. No increase in the budget apparently as the presentation is just as (if not more) primitive, the acoustic guitars, electric bass and organ all having been somewhat squelched into the background. Still a pleasant low-key charm in their songs, especially with respect to those laid back female vocals. Their simple heartfelt approach brings a warm delicate appeal to songs like ‘Narrow Road’ and ‘New Song’. Someone in the group must have owned the ﬁrst Love Song album since they do versions of ‘Two Hands’, ‘Changes’ and ‘Love Song’ (Wade Akins returns to brieﬂy speak over-top the latter song, as well as ‘The Savior Is Waiting’). Also covers of ‘Spread A Little Love Around’, ‘Sweet Sweet Song Of Salvation’ and ‘I Wish We’d All Been Ready’. The group was part of the Wade Akins Street Ministry Association headquartered in Washington DC. (The Archivist by Ken Scott, 4th Edition).
