Mixed Expressions (Audio Recording ARL-1223) 1967




Mixed Expressions impresses me as sort of a female counterpart to Paul Quinlan’s excellent Glory Bound.  Juliana Garza’s strong sense of melody and composition, proficient classical guitar playing, sincere vocals, and simple presentation all coalesce to make this one of the more authentic sounding of the early Catholic folk recordings.  ‘Forest Of Plenty’, ‘Days Of September’, ‘The Love Of Our God’, ‘Heart Of Christ’, ‘The Sky’s A Dying’, ‘Sorrow’s Not For Crying’, ‘Bring Him All Your Troubles’ – sixteen songs in all, a few with a second Sister on backing vocals, but most with just Juliana and guitar.     (The Archivist, 4th edition by Ken Scott).

This one was on the Heavenly Grooves blog.
