Growing Pains (Light LS-5684-LP) 1975
The Al Perkins produced Growing Pains enlisted the talents of John Michael Talbot, Terry Talbot, Keith Green, Michael Omartian and David Diggs among others. The album also includes what is perhaps her most recognized song ‘The Victor’, made popular on Keith Green’s No Compromise. Features several of Jamie’s own songs, such as ‘Hard Times’, ‘The Father’s Song’ and ‘Fly Away With Me’. Also titles co-written with Matthew Ward (‘Singin’ Hallelujah’) and Terry Talbot (‘New Jerusalem’). More or less the same string-orchestrated light-rock-and-ballads format as Laughter In Your Soul, maybe a bit lighter overall, modernized slightly on the couple occasions when Omartian’s synthesizers join in. Sometimes sounds a little like early Olivia Newton John. Steel guitar brings a country edge to a few songs. Gate-fold cover. (The Archivist, 4th edition by Ken Scott).
