The New Earth (Sparrow SPR-1010) 1977




The professionalism continues on The New Earth which duplicates the rural acoustic sound heard on the debut.  Side one begins anther suite comprised of ‘The Greatest Is Love’, ‘Shiloh and ‘The King of Kings, all with sensitive lead vocals and harmonizing that perfectly complement the mood.  Some country rockers (‘Dance With Him’), some acoustic ballads (‘Cast Down Your Cares’), some acoustic ballads that turn into country rockers (‘The Last Trumpet’).  Also check out the fierce banjo instrumental ‘The Coming’ — man, that thing smokes!   (The Archivist by Ken Scott, 4th Edition).

The first time I listened to this album I was blown way by ‘The Coming’. I thought that sounds like what I would imagine as Jesus coming back, sweeping over the land and claiming his own as we fly to Him through the air with each pick of the banjo.   diakoneo
