Whisper (Crusade LP 808) 1976
Interesting primitive folk/country/rock do-it-yourself thing from Crete, Illinois singer, guitarist and songwriter. Jerry’s vocals can be a bit wild and off-key, at times coming across like a Neil Young that’s perhaps had one too many. Backing that voice is a fairly competent rural mix of acoustic and electric guitars, organ, piano, bass and drums. The music can sometimes have a Neil Young flavor as well, especially ‘Love, Love In The Air’ and his rendition of Karen Lafferty’s ‘Bird In A Golden Sky’. Other covers include Lamb (‘Who Will You Blame?’) and Paul Clark (‘We’ll Soon Be Going Home’). Also seven originals written by Jerry. Homegrown strings on a couple tracks, the rest left as is.
