Fighter  (Dovetail  DOVE 55)  1978  UK *



Kendrick, Graham - Fighter


Fighter draws upon the spiritual battle themes in Ephesians 6 for such titles as ‘On The Front Line’, ‘Victory Is The Only Song I Know’, ‘God Put A Fighter In Me’ and ‘Battle Hymn’.  Such themes are also reflected in the cover art an out stretched hand filled with soldiers, a tank, a tiger, guns and grieving faces.  In spite of all the battle imagery, Fighter‘s line-up of ballads, light-rock, folk-pop and soft jazz actually makes it one of Kendrick’s mellowest albums.  No matter.  In fact the melancholy ballad ‘Reluctant Disciple’ turns out to be one of Kendrick’s most convicting songs.  Brass arrangements on some selections.  Includes appearances by John Wickham, Dennis Holt, Phil Potter, Jim Stipech and John Pantry.  At This time Kendrick was Music Director for British Youth For Christ.    (The Archivist, 4th edition by Ken Scott).
