Come Even Now (Monarch DBP-200)  1976



Another female artist with attractive voice.  Some of her song selections lean fairly traditional (Gaither, Crouch), but the real problem here is the mountain of string orchestration.  That’s too bad because on that rare occasion where the strings are set aside, the vocals, acoustic guitar, flute and piano bring a lovely Linda Rich quality to her music.  The original title track and her interpretation of Love Song’s ‘Two Hands’ are the examples that best stood out for me.  ‘To The Prodigal, Peace’ is also rather pretty, as long as you don’t mind strings.  From Southern California.  (The Archivist by Ken Scott, 4th Edition).

A special thank you to Steve for the cleaned up cover.
