A Dream And A Prayer (Delta DRS 77M 606) 1977

 

 

One of the best acoustic duos I’ve heard featuring clean jangly finger-picked 6 and 12-string guitar, heartfelt harmonies and penetrating melodies that together suggest the artistry of Dan Fogelberg.  Vocals complement each other perfectly, though I’d be equally content just to sit back and hear them play guitar.  Songs like ‘The Passing On’, ‘You’re The One For Me’, ‘In Thy Light’ and ‘On The Wings Of A Divine Whisper’ have a warm wholesome quality that’s touched with a fragile air of poignancy. Guest contribute additional instruments, including nice electric guitar leads throughout courtesy of Rockwood’s Brad Nelson (especially on ‘Like A Child’).  Mostly a guitar album, although Brad also plays piano on ‘Lead Me To The Water’, while ‘Alone With You’ concludes with a lengthy saxophone solo.  Recorded live before an audience at Wheaton College. See also Phil Butin & Rich Webster.      (The Archivist, 4th edition by Ken Scott).
