I’ll Be Your Friend (Spectrum JC 8843) 1974?









Crain fashions a wholesome country-flavored soft rock mood on this fine earlier custom.  Trimmed with some nice electric guitar work.  Features thirteen of his songs, each inspired by a different emotion.  Titles include ‘Feelings Inside Me’, ‘I’m Missing You’, ‘Keep Your Mind On Jesus’, ‘Reflection Of Me’, ‘It’s Good To Thank The Lord In The Morning’, ‘You Make Me Happy’ and ‘Did You Ever Sit Down And Talk To Jesus’.  A Friendly Jim Croce demeanour to some of these songs.  Jim on acoustic guitar and vocals, others on harmony female vocal, lead guitar, drums,bass and piano.      (The Archivist, 4th edition by Ken Scott).








A special thank you to Chuck for providing the music.
