Worship from Hope Valley in 1992-1993

This CD was created from tracks found on three worship service compact cassette
tapes, dating from the early 1990s, discovered in 2010 during an exercise to digitise
for posterity as many as possible of the writers's old audio storage found in the bottom of
many cardboard boxes - before the recording media fell off the mylar base due to old age

 

Hope Valley musicians were known across Adelaide as being accomplished in the art of singing unaccompanied,
and with creating free vocal harmonies by ear from the chords of the accompanying musicians

 

Please note that this is not a carefully crafted studio recording. It is produced from the
cassette tapes provided to those who had missed attending church that day, recorded
from the sound system mix which aimed for - and often failed to acchieve - optimum
sound reinforcement for the congregation, using elderly (even at that time)
and barely adequate equipment - late 1970s-design and vintage in fact.

All things being considered, it represents the scene - there and then - quite well!
