Wilmore is a simple and straightforward acoustic album with that essential long-haired feel. At times the trio of Ron Moore, Doug Southworth, and Roger Hughes recalls the stark yet beautiful sound of early Bruce Cockburn circa High Winds, White Sky, the lonesome acoustic stillness of Neil Young or the gentle easy-flowing hippie folk-rock of an unplugged Wilson McKinley. Resonant acoustic guitars, phased electric, piano, light organ, and simple percussion all combine to achieve a definite highpoint for the style. Fresh original song-writing and personal non—trite lyrics dealing with topics such as a friend just out of prison (‘To Nancy’), a Korean high school student (‘Wellington Tang’), conversations with Jesus (‘First Person’) and returning from exile (‘Montana Michigan’), Stirring hypnotic almost folk/psych quietude surrounding cuts like ‘Song’, ‘Canada Calls”, ‘Fall Down Rain’, ‘If I” and ‘Hymn To The Sun’. Also a cover of Larry Norman’s ‘All Been Ready’. See also Bill & Ron Moore for an even earlier recording. (The Archivist, 4th edition by Ken Scott).
