Follow Me (Avant Garde  AV 111)  1968

 

Follow Me is a quieter album than Cool Livin’ and A Love Song, with no real psychedelic influences to speak of. No less of a treat though as John and Amanda perform twelve New Testament stories in song, updating traditional melodies through such diverse contemporary styles as folk, pop, rock, jazz, Caribbean and ragtime. Professional musicians again, including Dick Hyman on keyboards (piano, organ, celeste) and Jay Berliner on classical and electric guitar. Amanda harmonizes on the choruses and also contributes flute and organ. ‘Down By The Riverside’, ‘Wade In The Water’, ‘Song Of The Stable Boy’, ‘The Rich Young Ruler’, ‘The Water Of Life’, ‘Judas Iscariot’, ‘Peter And The Angel’, among others.    (The Archivist, 4th edition by Ken Scott).
