Road To Emmaus (Focus FS1014) 1975 Australia *
Similarly arranged collection of twelve folk songs with the same vibrant presentation. Mostly original titles written by David, save for the traditional Israeli folk tune ‘God Has Spoken’ and a brass-pepped cover of Phil Och’s ‘What’s That I Hear’. Usually acoustic guitars in the foreground, often backed by bass and drums, with periodic enrichment from organ, electric guitar and a group of ten backup singers. Fresh jangly vibes within zestful songs like ‘Follow Him’ and the title track. Three of these songs are ire-interpreted from his earlier custom 1p (‘Listen’, ‘Eighty Six’ and ‘Three Trees’). Glossy foldout cover. (The Archivist, 4th Edition by Ken Scott).
I have not acquired this album yet. Thank you Donald for the rear cover and inside gate-fold photos and the track list.
