Receive The Power (Holy Spirit HS0002) 1979




David Schwan was half of the duo Sparrow whose obscure lp Wings Of The Morning is one of my favorite folk-rock customs. One song from that album is duplicated here (‘Whole Lot Of Healin’, the exact same recording), plus there are two excellent additional tracks (‘You’ve Found Something’ and ‘Now I Understand’) in their dreamy soft harmony melodic style. In fact it sounds like they came from the same sessions. In contrast the seven songs performed by Otis are of an ultra-low—tech muddy keyboard lounge-jazz variety. Definitely worth my time for the non-lp Sparrow. (The Archivist, 4th edition by Ken Scott).



I have not acquired this album yet.
