Out In The Open (Lamb & Lion LL-1035) 1977













Back to a duo, Dogwood plugs in the electric, adds piano, and moves away from country folk toward friendly pop-edged middle-of-the-road country rock. Mostly original titles, along with ‘Great Great Joy’ and Terry Talbot’s ‘Taking Me Higher’. Songs like ‘You Move Me’, ‘You’ll Be There’ and ‘Ebenezer’ all stand up well, working in nice embellishments of electric guitar. ‘The Singer’ was adapted from Calvin Miller’s book of the same title. Backup vocalists include Honeytree, Fireworks, Annie Chapman and Chris Christian. All three of the group’s Lamb & Lion albums were produced by Chris Christian.
