A New Day (Fontaine House 0918) 1970






A New Day is back in the same banjo-and-singers format as Gonna Sing My Lord, brisk selections alternating with slow moody ballads, sometimes reminiscent of early Ray Repp. Includes ‘Be A New Man’, ‘Lord Teach Us To Pray’, the solemn ‘All I Am I Give To You’ and the liturgical refrain ‘Christ Has Died’. Some songs have Joe singing alone, others bring in some or all of the six backup singers (including wife Maleita). Occasional cello and flute accompanying. Includes assistance from Neil Blunt and Dan Creed. A simple unpretentious recording. (Ken Scott – Archivist).
