Dear Lord (Holy Kiss HK-5009) 1979
Okay light-hearted soft rock item on Randy Matthews’ collectible custom label. Dennis was previously a member of The Hallelujah Joy Band. Although little of that group’s rural rock style carries over onto this album, there are still a few country pedal steel moments to be found songs like ‘Near A Town In Nevada’ and the title track. Overall a fairly diverse set, sampling lounge-jazz (‘Lord I’ve Never Known’), ‘50s pop (‘Hallelujah Praise The Lord’), mellow instrumental (‘Song Of Songs’), ballads (‘My Wedding Song’) and skifﬂe (‘Never Found A Love Like My Jesus’). Krause supplies the guitars, vocals and piano. Other instruments include saxophone and synthesizer. Among the background vocalists are Randy Matthews, Monty Matthews and Ray Hildebrand. Produced by Randy Matthews. (The Archivist, 4th edition by Ken Scott).
