Still Life (Light LS-5645-LP) 1974
It was on the Light label that Fischer’s popularity in Christian music flowered and where he settled into his characteristic soft rock style. While often mellow and heavily string-orchestrated, Still Life seldom dips to the point of sappiness. Fischer still plays acoustic guitar, although on half the songs his preferred instrument is now piano (as on the title ballad). ‘Simple Pleasures’ has a relaxed easygoing singer/songwriter melody that brings to mind James Taylor. Rockers will be glad to find a harder-edged gem in ‘Matthews Blues’, with the organ-backed ‘Brightest And Best’ not too far behind Also includes his familiar sing-along ‘All Day Song’ (“love him in the morning when you see the sun arising”). Michael Omartian provides keyboards on a few songs, while Pam Mark appears on backing vocals. Fold-out cover. (The Archivist, 4th edition by Ken Scott).
