Bob (Galilee GA 2002) 1978 Australia *

Wolfgramm, Bob

On this obscure Australian release, singer, songwriter and guitarist Bob Wolfgramm offers up a rewarding soulful blend of rock, pop and folk without any of the fluff angle that’s often inherent in ccm. Styles include hard funky swamp rock (‘Thomas’ Song’), soulful sax pop-rock (‘Man’s A Tree’), acoustic blues (‘Good Samaritans’), gentle piano/flute ballad (‘Emmaus’) and fiddle-backed country moods (‘Born To Die’). A number of musicians and instruments involved, including lots of fervent Keith Green-ish piano courtesy of arranger Charlie Hull. Nice mildly raspy hue to Bob’s voice. Quite a bit of feeling in these songs. This is the second album on the tiny Australian Galilee label, following Sally Hilder’s All My Friends Are Sinners on which Bob also played. (The Archivist, 4th edition by Ken Scott).
