Spirit Of St. Lewis  (Maranatha  77-041)  1978





Standard late-’70s Maranatha fare from former Mustard Seed Faith member gone solo.  Much more pop-oriented that MSF, sometimes even stepping into easy listening.  When he does rock, it’s usually in an easygoing way, as on ‘Time’ and ‘How Long?’.  A few jazz moves, smooth and breezy on ‘Any Day’, slow and funky with sax on ‘Somebody’, soft-n-easy on ‘To Be With You’.  Also some country edges with barnyard sounds, a vocalized moaning hound-dog and Fred Field fiddle.  Lewis provides lead vocals and acoustic guitar, assisted by several others, including some soulful backup singers.  Features ten of Lewis’ songs.  Produced by John Pantry.     (The Archivist by Ken Scott, 4th Edition).
