Come Walk With Me  (Maranatha  HS-777/4)  1972






Before wandering off into adult contemporary territory  and Psalty kid things with friend and eventual hubby Ernie Rettino, Debby Kerner gave us this enjoyable platter of simple folk music.  Not quite as stark as say Linda Rich, but enough hands-off approach in the production to save from becoming sweetened mush.  A good deal of the lp is simply Debby and guitar which suits me just fine.  Other songs may expand the sound to include drums and electric bass.  Joyful upbeat songs (‘Come Walk With Me In The Spirit’), sensitive acoustic ballads (‘Behold, I Stand At The Door And Knock’), strumming minor-key folk (‘Are You Ready’), warm finger-picked expressions (‘Blessed Be The Day’), stirring singer/songwriter moods  (‘The Peace That Passes Understanding’).  String orchestration on a couple songs, including the 5:48 Revelation-themed ‘The Horsemen’.  One children’s sing-along, plus a couple piano-backed songs.  Debby’s voice often recalls Joan Baez and is well suited for her compositions.     (The Archivist, 4th edition by Ken Scott).
