Star Wars Of Darkness And Light (Grapevine 119) 1978 UK *

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Certainly one of the more intriguingly titled albums on this UK label, with some fairly commendable music to match. The opening title track utilizes a Star Wars analogy to describe spiritual warfare (note how the lead synthesizer melody is obviously derived from the film’s theme song). That song builds up some decent mid-rocking energy, as does the following track ‘Darkness And Light’. ‘Good Friday (All Over Again)’ slinks along with electric guitar and a hint of Elvis, while ‘Carousel’ toys around with waltz time. The rest of the album settles in folky pop, folk-rock, light rock, acoustic ballads and MOR. One gets the impression of an adult pop/contemporary kind of guy trying out more adventurous waters, but it’s still a respectable record overall, in the same general bag as guys like Aleksander John and Kevin Gould. The space-themed cover design is pretty cool. Produced by Sue McClellan and Pete Yates-Round of Parchment, with assistance from John Daniels (keyboards) and Mo Witham (acoustic and electric guitars). (Ken Scott – The Archivist).
