From An Indirect Love (Epoch VII EG100) 1974

 

Ed Gutfreund’s first lp is above-par mellow flute-laden folk and acoustic ballads, featuring Ed on acoustic and classical guitar, with Erich Sylvester contributing additional guitar (12-string and classical). Piano, mandolin, dulcimer, banjo and harmonica also appear on some tracks. A couple of acoustic rock songs with a rural edge and electric guitar (‘Alleluia, Praise To The Lord’ with nice dual leads, and ‘Your People Of Faith’). Sometimes a hint of early Talbot brothers. Pleasant cover of the Quaker hymn ‘How Can I Keep From Singing?’ along with a simple folk/gospel cover of ‘Lights Of The City’. Brilliant colorful cover painting. (The Archivist by Ken Scott, 4th Edition).
