    HOPE - Theophilus (no label RSR 691) 1974?

    Splendid batch of homemade country folkrocking originals from two guys and one gal known as Hope, with musical assistance from a few of their friends. Wholesome natural outdoor atmosphere, including moody pastoral hippie folkrock, acoustic ballads, rural rock, gospel blues and mid-tempo head-bobbin’ toe-tappin’ tunes. Mostly an acoustic focus plus a couple electric tracks, enhanced with ingredients like fiddle, mandolin, piano, flute and harmonica, led by dreamy humble relaxed harmonies. Sample titles include ‘Connection’, ‘God Fearin’ Woman – Good Christian Man’, ‘He Told Me Like It Is’, ‘I Saw Your Light’ and ‘Third Heaven & Earth’. Similar in many ways to a lot of the early Maranatha country line-up, yet with simpler production and a more authentic feel. (The Archivist, 4th edition by Ken Scott).
