A Star Whispered (Pilgrim 405) 1976 UK *
Album number four for Smith, looking a tad bushier than his Faith, Folk And Clarity days. Joined by a small harmonizing group known as Geordie’s Penkers, he performs tunes from a songbook he compiled entitled ‘Jesus Folk’. Short quiet songs that combine acoustic guitar, bass, drums, flute and sometimes piano. Half the songs have that happy featherweight British pop/praise feel. The remaining simple acoustic tracks are the ones I found more to my liking. (The Archivist, 4th edition by Ken Scott).
