Joy Fulfilled (Silent Seed 42676) 1974


Hess, Ann - Joy Fulfilled


Custom lp from soprano-voiced folk singer. A few musicians help out on electric guitar, bass, organ, piano, drums and vocal harmony, pushing a few songs into folk-rock territory such as ‘Light Of My Life’ and a cover of Ernie Rettino’s ‘The Eyes Of The Lord’. Nice flute on ‘More Like Jesus’. ‘Amazing Grace’ is done with simple acoustic backing, while ‘1, 2, 3, Jesus Loves Me’ is accompanied by banjo. A few traditional-leaning piano cuts, but overall an okay record. Four original songs written by Ann, including the stirring piano ballad ‘I’m Ready, My Lord’ that concludes the album. Produced by Rick Riso. (The Archivist, 4th edition by Ken Scott).



I have not acquired this album yet. Thank you Donald for the rear cover photo and the track list.
