Run Like a Deer (FEL  S-092)  1967

 

 

After two excellent folk lps and an appearance on Praise The Lord In Many Voices Part II, Paul Quinlan surfaced with a band and took aim at the “beat” sound or in his words “folk-rock psalms” – and man my feet are a-movin’! ‘O Praise The Lord’ swings with incredible cheesy go-go organ, while the snappy ‘60s pop of ‘Glory To God’ and ‘God Arises’ progresses with a cool beat and a touch of Beatles twang. Side two is more folk-oriented, performed in a trio format with much gusto, especially those Spanish-flavored tunes. A few songs are re-interpreted from earlier lps. A superb lp (my fave from the boy) with a nice homemade feel, plus it’s one of the first American albums to step out into more rockin’ territory. Great!   (The Archivist, 4th edition  by Ken Scott).
