It’s By Grace (No label 40445) 1982
Well-produced private press with an appealing folk/folkrock style somewhere amidst Dan Fogelberg, Terry Talbot and Michael Card. Some songs in a quiet acoustic format, others with a vibrant rustling mix of 12-string guitar and heartland piano. Randy delivers some fine guitar work and is assisted by additional personnel on piano, bass, drums, string ensemble and background vocals. ‘Christmas Song’, ‘It Should Have Been Me’, ‘Sonrise’, ‘Dawning Of A New Day’, ‘Clay Vessels’ four more, all originals written by Randy. Switches gears for a lively gospel-rock groove ala Neil Diamond on ‘Ain’t That Enough’. From Open Door Fellowship in Phoenix, Arizona. Produced by Bernie Rolfe. (The Archivist, 4th edition by Ken Scott).
