Good News II (Sonrise Mercantile SMC 006) 1977
Keith Green joins the lineup on keyboards while Erick Nelson exits on this less common but equally good follow-up. Greater jazz influences surface this time, including horn arrangements and saxophone solos on a couple cuts. Two songs written by Keith (‘Run To The End Of The Highway’, ‘Everybody’s Talkin’ ‘Bout Love’), the rest by Diggs, Carlisle, Batstone and Nelson. Slick Diggs guitar solos on the sunny ‘Wait For The Day’ and the synth-funky ‘Ride Along Rider’. Stirring dreamy acoustic mood to ‘Lord, We Feel Your Presence’. Lead vocals have a pleasant soulful flair. (The Archivist by Ken Scott, 4th Edition).
