4 Company "Song For A Friend" 1978 Australia Xian Folk

4 Company  "Song For A Friend"  1978 Australia Xian Folk

Beautiful Australian girl/guy acoustic foursome, simple and pure, soft and delicate, afresh with the same spirit as some of the top UK folk records (the person I got the 1p from likened their style to Tudor Lodge). Gentle stirring creative harmonies from Susanne and Marilyn Noble, John King, Stephen Watts, backed by acoustic guitars, rendering original titles like ‘Dip ‘N’ Derry’, ‘Rock And Roll’, ‘Friends’, ‘North Of Jericho’, cIf Only The Fire’ and the intensely touching ‘Clover’. Also moving interpretations of Randy Matthews (‘Evacuation Day’), Larry Norman (‘1 Am A Servant’), Joe South (a lyrically-revised version of ‘Don’t It Make You Wanna Go Home’) and Noel Paul Stookey (‘Hymn’). Especially lovely when it’s just the two girls harmonizing on songs like ‘Lebanon’ and ‘Song For A Friend’s Wedding’. The latter track includes some bongo accompaniment, as does ‘Behold The Tabernacle Of God’. An extremely rare record on Australia’s custom branch of EMI, also home to superb rarities by Flock, Kindekrist and Ignis Christi. (The Archivist, 4th edition by Ken Scott)…………
