O Let Him In (FEL 592)  1974



When Folk-singer/guitarist Bob Hurd is at his simplest he recalls Paul Clark’s early works.  Highlights from his debut album include ‘John The Baptist’ (where Bob whips out a harmonica) and the beautiful flute-accompanied acoustic ballad ‘Christ’s Song’.  Most songs, however, feature the group Whitebird who add piano, flute, guitar leads and a small male chorus.  Their tracks are not quite as immediately accessible due to the ensemble vocals and piano-based sound, but overall they still manage a nice flowing summery keyboard-based folk/pop/rock sound, as best exemplified on the wah-wah-enriched ‘Lamentations’.  Pleasant home-made atmosphere throughout.  Subtitled Eleven New Songs For Lively Worship. (The Archivist by Ken Scott, 4th Edition).
