"Siloam" 1977

Acid Archives:
Siloam is to American folkrock what groups like Presence, Aslan and Sanctus are to the British scene. Melodic textures of 12-string guitar, piano, percussion and male/female harmonies combine with compassionate songwriting and skilled musicianship to create a wonderful work of fragile beauty and homegrown charm. Gently strummed mid-tempo numbers like "Mystery", the minor-key "We Beseech You" and the breezy "For This Reason" all are sheer perfection for the genre. Tracks like "The Shepherd" and "Day Of The Lord" even have a dreamy psych edge to them. Others reveal a delicate VU "Femme Fatale" kind of quality. Very nice acoustic lead guitar work throughout. A seven person outfit from Dayspring Community in St. Louis. Not an expensive LP. [KS]

One-way.org:
Moody Christian folk and folk rock private press with a trancelike, drifting vibe. Male and female vocals (solo and chorus), electric and acoustic guitars, bass, drums, keyboards, etc. At times the sound reminds me of 'More' or 'Meddle' period Pink Floyd during their more quiet and introspective tracks, other times it sounds like Guitar Ensemble. Songs include 'Fear The Lord', 'Mystery', 'Weary Traveler', etc. Cool cover art.

Ah - and not long after I found that it was also posted at theancientstar-song, with all the tracks (the last track was missing at shilohworshipmusic.com, although it might be a better rip otherwise).
