Lindy Hearne  (no label  9275)  1975

 

 

It certainly can’t hurt to have Eddie DeGarmo and Dana Key helping you out on your custom record. And help they do on this obscure debut from singer/songwriter Lindy Hearne. The cover illustration of him playing guitar next to an old-fashioned potbelly stove would seem to hint at an acoustic album. Such is the case on several songs, like the opening cover of The Beatles’ ‘Blackbird’, the dreamy flute-accompanied ‘Bird Of The Sea’, or the beautiful Cockburn-esque ‘Not Like You’. Also some good country rock (‘Satan’s Chains’), as well as early D&K-styled roots rock with the aforementioned duo on organ and electric guitar (‘Lean On One Another’). ‘Truckin’ and ‘He Will Speak To You’ are fine examples of country folk with backing from pedal-steel and harmonica respectively. Linda Hearne adds her vocals to a couple ballads. Twelve selections in all.       (The Archivist by Ken Scott, 4th Edition).
