Joy Comes In The Morning (no label 9020234-2404) 1979



Exceedingly nice acoustic rock and melodic 12-string folk-rock ans ballads custom from small Michigan outfit. Paonessa on acoustic guitar and lead vocals is joined by Anne Brown on vocals, Mike Steiner on percussion, Miller Goodman on keyboards and Tom Zito on bass and additional guitar. ‘I Am Free’ rejoices with upbeat phased guitar and congas, while flashy synthesizers buzz through heavier tracks like ‘When He Comes’ and the 9-minute ‘The Easter Song’, stretching then out into progressive rock territory. High quality stuff that should have been picked up by a label. (The Archivist, 4th edition by Ken Scott).
