Pilgrim (Amariah AMRLP-002) 1981
Excellent follow-up that finds Bill, Steve and ﬁve of their friends continuing in an acoustic/electric folk-rock direction while adding a few rural rock edges. ‘God Don’t Need No Flying Saucers’ and ‘Thy Will Be Done’ have the guys cruising along in a friendly country rock fashion, while ‘The Son Of Man’ and ‘Trust In The Lord’ have melodic plugged-in rural rock vibes that approach the depth of artists like Rohrbacker, Hendren & Kingen. Attractive use of viola and Violin on a few songs, including the harmonica-backed ‘Sailing To New Orleans’ with its folky sea-shanty mood. Other instruments ﬁlling in include piano, background synthesizer and mandolin. Rounded out with some ﬁne ballads, including the beautiful closing title track.

I have not acquired this album yet, but did locate both sides of the cover.
