Come Praise (Isle PTL-777) 1979?




Their ultra obscure custom debut: an excellent album of eleven original songs, only one of which appeared on the New Born lp (‘Make Me A Sacrifice’). The Style is similar to Voyage, though slightly more in the folk-rock, and soft rock direction with an appealing home-made angle. Piano and electric piano but no synths this time. All Songs written by Frank and Gale Limbacher, the only personnel common to both recordings. I especially liked the edgier electric tracks like, ‘Suicide Mission’ and ‘I’ve Got Jesus’, or ‘Different Drummer’ which appropriately includes a drum solo. Their home base is identified as New Philadelphia, Ohio. Another very attractive cover painting: an island sunset seen through a ships steering wheel. (The Archivist, 4th edition by Ken Scott).




I have not acquired this album yet.  Thank you Donald for the rear cover photo and track list.
