Editor's note: this record is decidedly more folk than it is religious and if you didn't have the sleeve with the song titles and the LP title itself you would never know it was a Christian record. To me the music was often a little bit too downcast for the lyrical content but who's to say what should go where for whom. Surely not I.

Hi R.O.

You had me going there for a few minutes, until i realized that i already have this album with this fine duo.
I sure do agree with you that this album sounds more folk then high praise so if you leave the glory glory hallelujah's aside you will get a nice peace of folk on your plate.
From what i know they made another album back in '77 called Quail and it was that i thought you had posted, but obviously it wasen't.
Anyhow i would like to thank you for posting this good album for the universal army of pagans to discover.

That's right Daad and furthermore:

"See them shimmy see them go
See their painted faces glow
Slow slow quick quick slow
See those pagans go go go go go"
