Gonna Sing My Lord (Fontaine House LP-1001) 1966













Moody Catholic folk-singer with a stirring voice and several well-known songs. Gonna Sing My Lord is his debut album, a very quiet, stark and solemn recording that has the feel of a live performance of folk spirituals. Simple low-key arrangements feature two guitars, banjo, bass and a few singers on the choruses. Includes what is perhaps his most popular song, ‘Take Our Bread’. Several minor-key selections, including the title track and ‘Sing Praise To The Lord’. A few brief liturgical refrains on side two. A humble start for one of the “founding fathers” that was there in the beginning beside Ray Repp and Paul Quinlan. (Ken Scott – Archivist).
