Open Door, The - Which Way To Nowhere

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Oklahoma guy/gal coffee-house group with nice amateur-charm 12-string folk sound. Delicate and fragile, yet with depth and melody — similar to the acoustic moments on that Last Days album in that respect. Several self-written songs like ‘Realization’, ‘The Christian Curse’ and ‘Living Testimony’, along with pleasant covers of ‘Teach Your Children’ and ‘Fire And Rain’. ‘Sweet Lord Jesus’ is done to the tune of ‘Mr. Bojangles. Piano and flute join in at times, plus there’s some lovely violin and viola accompaniment, especially on the more folk-rock—edged closer ‘Live Forever’ where they truly excel. Even a couple stumbling trumpet parts (as on the title track) seem to fit in ok and even add to the warmth. Same custom label as the first Sounds Of The Spirit lp. (The Archivist, 4th edition by Ken Scott).

I have not acquired this album yet.
