Learning How to Love (Jubal Spring JR 7001) 1978
The voice reminds me of Evan Williams, the music of Phil Keaggy’s What A Day or perhaps the quieter side of Harvest Flight. Learning How To Love is an exceptional private press recording of dreamy acoustic rock that features beautiful melodies layered with silky guitar work and soft lulling vocals. Over forty-five minutes of music to drift away to, twelve original songs with titles like ‘Sailing Out On Life’, ‘Publican And Pharisee’, ‘I Wonder How You Love Me’, ‘I Believe In Him’, ‘Simple Things’, ‘Mary And Martha’ and the boogie jammin’ ‘Depersonalization Blues’. Brian plays guitar, woodwinds, congas and keyboards, while four other guys add various instruments and/or bgvs. How come no one’s ever heard of this guy? (The Archivist, 4th edition by Ken Scott).
