Gift (Christopher CH-108)  1974  Canada *

 

 

Fans of Jim Croce and early James Taylor will find a real treat in this Ontario foursome’s album of gentle acoustic rock with a ’70s singer/songwriter pop edge.  Soft keyboards (piano, electric piano, organ), melodic songs, nice harmonization, clean production underscoring acoustic guitar leads.  Members include Ray Murphy, Darrell Gillespie, Gary Freeburn, and Tom Marsh.  ‘What Can Be Done’, ‘Great Divide’, ‘Would You Like To Be Free’, ‘Walkin’ Down The Street’ and ‘New Born Babes’ are all memorable songs, rich with feeling.  Light electric guitar leads on ‘Wealth Of Living’ and ‘It’ll Get Easier’. Top-drawer packaging with watercolor painting on gate-fold cover.  A real thing of beauty.      (The Archivist by Ken Scott, 4th Edition).
