Free Indeed (Sparrow  SPR-1005)  1976

 

One of the new faces on the burgeoning Sparrow label was singer/songwriter Janny  Grein.  Free Indeed introduced her mellow style through a collection of slow songs, some acoustic, some orchestrated with strings, some with gospel and light-rock touches, a few with the piano-ballad feel of Carole King. Covenant Woman contains some of her most popular songs, including ‘Bread On The Water’ and the title track.  He Made Me Worthy reveals a more rock-edged Janny on a couple of songs (Don’t Give The Devil An Opportunity’, ‘Psalm 20’), while also leaving mild impressions of Carole King (‘Follow The Way Of Love’, ‘Diamond In The Rough’) and Janice Ian (‘Love To Me’).  A  lot of familiar names assisting on all of these, including 2nd Chapter Of Acts, the Talbots, Mike Deasy, Harlan Rogers, Billy Maxwell, Hadlet Hockensmith, Bili Thedford, Fletch Wiley, Jessy Dixon and David Diggs.  See also Anyone But Jesus. (The Archivist by Ken Scott, 4th Edition).

 

In loving memory of Janny.
