The Beggar And The King (Cornerstone CS 1001) 1980?







Budjenska, Ken







Cowboy folk-singer and country rocker singing about Jesus (‘Peter’s Song’, ‘There’s A Reason’, ‘The Return’) and cowboys (‘Lonesome Is A Cowboy’, ‘Cowboys Don’t Cry’, ‘Backyard Cowboy’). Good relaxed non-twangy rural sound throughout, from the melodic light-rock title track to the boogie rock of ‘Prayer Moves The Hand Of The Lord’ to the minor-key ‘The Day That Heaven Cried’ (with great nimble electric guitar work). The sax—accompanied ‘I Need You So’ is a pleasant pop ballad diversion. Features Bud on rhythm guitar, others on lead guitars, bass, drums, piano, synthesizer and harmonica. Eleven self—written songs. Recorded in Denver. (The Archivist, 4th edition by Ken Scott).
