Wings Of An Eagle (Sparrow SPR 1009)  1976

 

 

The Sparrow label seems a natural plug-in for the easy-going country-edged folk and rock sounds of Mike and Kathie Deasy.  Wings Of An Eagle features eleven of Mike’s songs, many of which have a slow-to-mid-tempo lazy stroll (‘Sleeping Lady’, ‘Wolf’, ‘Doctor, Doctor’, ‘Humpty Dumpty’, ‘Shark’, ‘Get Glad’, the title track), sometimes lightly dabbed with a touch of roots rock, blues or funk.  On the heavier end is the driving guitar/organ/synth rocker ‘Silver And Run’.  Kathie’s vocals are spotlighted on the ballads ‘Puppets’ and ‘Lazarus’.  Assistance from Michael  Omartian (keyboards) and 2nd Chapter Of Acts (background vocals).  String orchestrated to a degree, as were most of the early Sparrow releases.   (The Archivist by Ken Scott, 4th Edition).
