Clouds, Tears & Mountains (Ark 61925) 1977


Same Ark label as all those Jeff Johnson albums, so you know that’s a good sign. Indeed no disappointments here as this is intelligent jazzy pop-rock with some savory guitar leads, innovative keyboards and a peppy brass section, not to mention catchy songwriting. Some moody tracks as well with Johnson-esque “new-age” acoustic guitar and synth interplay. Johnson does make a couple keyboard and background vocal appearances, but this is clearly Hybl’s album all the way, often handling multiple instruments on a single track. Also dabbles in pure acoustic (‘So I Prayed’), hard rock (‘Have You Ever Seen?’) and classical folk (‘If I Could Hold That Moment’). Includes a lyric insert with guitar chords. Good stuff!   (The Archivist by Ken Scott, 4th Edition).

1-1Watchin' over me
1-2Little one
1-3Then and now
1-4My friend
1-5Fire in your heart
2-1Lord I want you in my life
2-2Walkin' up the line
2-3So I prayed
2-4Have you ever seen
2-5If I could hold that moment


I also added the front cover for LOS BAU-HAL-TE album Misa A Go Go today.   diakoneo
