Ship Of Life (New Born NB 7023) 1980 Canada *
One of the more obscure items on the New Born roster. Ship Of Life should find a welcome audience among those who enjoy Paul Clark and John Fischer’s output from the same time period. Soft vocals overtop a mostly light rock and ballads style with a subtle jazz angles scattered about. Notable lead guitar on tracks like ‘Poor As A Beggar’, the harder-edged ‘Shalom’, and the jazz-funky title tune. Simple string orchestration here and there. A typical release for the label. (The Archivist, 4th edition by Ken Scott).
