  1. This album cannot be found anywhere. The artist are still alive & performing. But it seems the producers have buried it, lost it, hoarded it or maybe just died...?

  4. It is the fact that I own this album on cassette that I found this site... I received it from Steve and Ruth in Japan in 1982 or 83. We studied Japanese together at a language school in Karuizawa. Steve was a fantastic guitarist even then. Exciting to see where God has taken them in music!

  5. This is one of my favorite Christian phonograph records. I wore out the original copy, but found one in better shape a few years ago.

  6. I just picked up a "new" thrift store turntable, a 1978 vintage Technics SL-3200 Direct Drive. I have been listening to a lot of my favorite records with much improved sound.

    I have been wanting to dub the 1978 Zion Mountain Folk album into my computer in order to listen it on my little Zen Stone MP3 player with tiny speaker. This amazing toy makes it possible to carry my favorite records anywhere. (The radio doesn't play anything I want to hear.)

    I was able to get rid of the snap crackle and pop of the surface noise. I also eliminated the residual rumble of the turntable. Some moderate 3:1 compression brought the musical instruments up to a comparable level with the vocals.

    I wondered what happened to the Zion Mountain Folk. It is wonderful to know that Steve and Ruth Smith are still making music. I am catching up on their music via the internet.

    I will also have to track down Harry Browning, Herb Melton, Jim Pennington, and Byron Berline.
