New Creation (Eagle Creek ECR 2) 1977 Canada *
Canadian folk-singer, most of whose songs get orchestrated down into smoothie-voiced MOR ballads. The title track is worth mentioning-a tight jazzy rock-edged piece souped up with synths, electric guitar and brass. Also commendable are the more purely acoustic ballads such as the heavily harmonic’d ‘This Is The Time’ and the ﬁddle-accompanied ‘Pentecost Revival-Time Rag’. All songs written by Arlen save for the hymns ‘Beautiful Savior’ and ‘I Have Decided’. Had a later album on NewBom. (The Archivist, 4th edition by Ken Scott).
Arlen also has two CD’s Here I Stand from 1989 and Great Big Noise from 1991. diakoneo
