Excellent follow-up that finds Bill, Steve and five of their friends continuing in an acoustic/electric folkrock 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. (The Archivist, 4th edition by Ken Scott).
