Reign On Me (Coal Bin E-678) 1980
The addition of electric guitar gives Reign On Me a fuller sound and greater rock edge than From The Inside Out. Keyboards are still the main focus, i.e., Bill’s acoustic and electric piano. Strong Larry Norman impressions (both musically and vocally) throughout the album, most noticeable on the rocker ‘Remain In Me’. More artsy progressive influences, particularly on ‘Desire’, ‘Searchlight’ and ‘The Trumpet Song’. Honky-tonkin’ boogie-rock groove spicing up ‘Nazarene Town’. ‘Let Go’, ‘Stay Free’, ‘Bumper Stickers’ and the title cut are all first-rate ballads. Produced by Jerry Esno, who also contributes harmonica. Another one of Minnesota’s excellent private presses. Additional ‘80s albums by Bill include Time Of Seasons and Little Child.
