Love On A Lonely Tree (Malgriff MG—R1) 1979 Australia *
Australian Catholic priest’s album of gentle melodic songs built mostly around piano, acoustic guitar and ﬂute. Also selected use of electric piano, electric guitar, violin, viola, horns and male/female background vocals. Similar in many ways to the US Catholic folk scene from the same time period, leaving impressions of a less polished NALR production. Kevin sings lead on three songs, while other tracks alternate various lead vocalists. Ranges from ﬂowing lyrical tunes to slow ballads to playful upbeat numbers. Not a huge deal, but manages some stirring moments here and there. ‘Sing A Song With Your Life’, ‘And Mary Is Her Name’, ‘Malachi’, ‘A Split Christmas’, ‘Visitation’, ﬁve more. (The Archivist, 4th edition by Ken Scott).
