Water Into Wine Band - Harvest Time (1976)

The second album from this British band.

The band was a quartet with a lineup of guitars, bass, violin, pianos, bongos and vocals.

The band debuted in 1974 with their Hill Climbing For Beginners album. A pretty good acid folk rock album. You can read my review here.

The band operated in the Christian Jesus revolution scene in the 1970s and their debut album made some waves in that scene and in the secular folk rock scene too.

Their US tour was a disaster and the band did not recover from that heavy blow. The remnants gathered for the final time and released Harvest Time. It is the final sign of life from this band.

The music here is guitars, vocals and violin dominated folk music. There is no prog and hardly any rock either here.

The violins are dominant here and adds some good stuff to this album. An album without any real good songs. A forty minutes long album.

This is a decent enough album but just that. I am not impressed by this album. It may appeal to the folk rock fan out there.
