House At The End Of The Road (New Wine NW303) 1972
Talented folk-singer, songwriter, and guitar/piano player mildly reminiscent of Gordon Lightfoot. House At The End Of The Road is his best album, featuring lots of nice jangly 12-string guitar coupled with intelligent and compassionate singer/songwriter lyrics. Moods range from pure rootsy folk (‘Lizard’) to vigorously strummed songs (‘Big Mamma Earth’) to sensitive acoustic ballads (‘In The Morning’). ‘Wake Up’ and the title track bring in bass, drums, piano and organ for more of a rock-edged sound, while congas and electric guitar enhance the opening ‘New Wine Cafe’. ‘Long Way Back Home’ and ‘Whither Thou Goest’ are piano ballads played and sung with conviction. Wife Jean plays the organ and also provides backup vocals on two songs. Good rustic heartland sound throughout. (The Archivist by Ken Scott, 4th Edition).
