Have You Heard  (Sparrow  SPR-1013)  1977


Barry’s edge frequently gets smoothed over on this mellow outing, mainly from Jimmy Owens’ string arrangements along with the gospel backing of the Shirley Matthews Singers.  Includes songs written by Wendell Burton (‘Good Old Gospel Feelin’),  Dogwood’s Steve Chapman (‘Sometime Someplace ‘), Nutshell’s Paul Field (‘Light Of The World’), Shiloh’s Dennis MacIntosh (‘There Is A Place’, ‘My Lord’) and Barry’s (‘Communion Song’).  Also a few written by Mike Deasy, including ‘Chubby Chubby’, the song about the Christian who was spiritually “too fat to fly” at the Lord’s return.  Many of the same participants as C’Mon Along, including Deasy on Guitars, mandolin and dobro.   (The Archivist, 4th edition by Ken Scott).
