Comin’ Back To Town (Inwood IR-1001) 1979
Comin’ Back To Town has more of an old—time traditional sound as Spoelstra dips back into American country, gospel, spirituals and bluegrass, Only three of his own songs here (‘New Seed Growing’, “The Song, The Singer, The Lord’ and ‘Jesus Comin’ Back To Town’), the rest being standards like ‘Swing Low Sweet Chariot’, ‘I Saw The Light’, ,‘This Little Light Of Mine’, ‘Will The Circle Be Unbroken’, and ‘Blue Eyes Cryin’ In The Rain’. Additional instruments this time include piano and steel guitar, along with horns on his Dixieland cover of ‘Just A Closer Walk With Thee’. (The Archivist by Ken Scott, 4th Edition).
