This Is Not A Dream (Aslan ARS-1003) 1977

 

This Is Not A Dream is slightly more piano-based than Flying.  The rich string orchestration on ‘Not My Will’ combined with resonant acoustic guitar stirs emotion as it deals with Christ’s prayer in Gethsemane – the kind of classical approach that sets apart artist like Michael Card from the adult contemporary norm.  Elsewhere though the strings can tend to overly sweeten the mood toward ccm.  Some respectable light rock songs here, including ‘Leading Lady’, ‘Carpenter’s Son’, and ‘Don’t Believe What You Doubt’.  Al Perkins’ steel guitar brings a mellow country edge to ‘Humble Yourself’.  Background vocals include John Fischer and Jamie Owens-Collins.  Another striking cover painting showing Pam beneath a sword-bearing angel.   (The Archivist by Ken Scott, 4th Edition).
