Mush (No label, no number) 1977



Sincere-looking mustached chap from Fresno, California who goes by the name of Mush. The front cover, the back cover credits, the record label – they all refer to the guy simply as Mush. Most of this singer/songwriter/guitarist’s custom album consists of gentle well produced acoustic soft-rock, often moody and dreamy with a light jazz edge. Mild country tinges courtesy of playful banjo (‘Puddles’) and lush steel guitar (‘I Love Only You’, ‘Feelings’). One solo-with-guitar offering (‘Prayer’), one piano ballad (‘Our Love’), one guitar instrumental (‘Selah’). Good electric guitar work on the opening Dan Fogelberg-ish ‘Praise The Lord’, as well as the dynamic slow-rocking harder-edged closing track ‘Jesus Is More’. Overall quite soothing and pleasant without being (forgive the pun) mushy. (The Archivist, 4th Edition by Ken Scott).

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