More Than Friends (Maranatha HS-035) 1977
Aw gee, they got married. And judging from the opening ‘New Song Arisin’ I’d say they’re pretty happy about it. More Than Friends contains more of the twosome’s usual assortment of orchestrated pop and ballads. Kiddie ditties include ‘Goodnews Gospel Ragtime’ and ‘Morningstar’. Major hillbilly action on ‘Seated In The Heavenlies’ — sounds like Ernie might’ve had a bit too much Mountain Dew. ‘Growing Together’ sets the strings aside for its simple acoustic melody. Also includes a new orchestrated version of ‘The Horsemen’ from Debby’s earlier folk album Come Walk With Me. Keith Green and Karen Lafferty make appearances on background vocals. Fold-out cover with their wedding photo inside. (The Archivist, 4th edition by Ken Scott).
Thank you Donald for the inside gate-fold and rear cover photos.
