They That Wait On The Lord (Loving Grace no #) 1980









A very different kind of album from Wayne, this time in the context of a small male/female band. A lot of the album has a folky feel, like the gorgeous acoustic title ballad with elegant cello and violin accompaniment. ‘0 Give Thanks’ has a nice jangly 12-string sound, while ‘Rejoice’ and ‘You Are My Light’ feature the band in a live folk/worship setting. Wayne sets aside his guitar a few times for piano ballads like ‘Worthy Is The Lamb’, ‘1 Just Want To Say’ and the instrumental ‘Selah’. ‘You Are My Love’ has a bit more of a rock edge, but all the stops were pulled out for the hard-rocking ‘Our Father’, a slow cut with loud—and—heavy guitar similar to Resurrection Band’s ‘Awaiting Your Reply’. Home-made strings (two cellos, two Violas, and five violins) on a few songs. No resemblance to Jethro Tull whatsoever. (The Archivist, 4th edition by Ken Scott).

I have not acquired this album yet.
