Singer In The King’s Service (Eden EDN-103) 1979



If you want rock-and-roll, it ain’t here. What you will find though is a fine collection of richly orchestrated pop, infectious soft rock and stirring ballads. Strings and horns are all over the place, but they enhance the songs rather than weigh them down. Within this 20-song two-disc studio set are such gems as the majestic title track, the intensely personal ‘Can’t You See Me?’, and the haunting ‘Appeal To A Dying Race’ (which borrows its classical melody from composer Henry Purcell). ‘New Wine’ (with Maynard Ferguson-esque trumpet squeals) and ‘Falling Star’ are connected by a gorgeous symphonic string passage. Deluxe packaging includes a gate-fold cover, inner sleeves with photos, and a large poster lyric sheet with commentary on each song. See also New Jerusalem.
