Love Songs (All Day ADS R7813) 1978
Loveshine is a Houston, Texas 2-girl 3-guy group whose home-made soft rock sound hovers between 2nd Chapter Of Acts and Seth. Their style is piano-based for the most part with a bit of that Anne Herring artfulness, often arranged with violins, sometimes drawing near pop/MOR realms yet without becoming overly sentimental. Includes ballads (the title track, ‘Bread Of My Life’, the sweetly sighing opener ‘Loveshine’), as well as livelier pieces such as ‘Joy’, ‘Hallelujah’ and the kazoo/jew’s- harp closer ‘Tickle My Ears’. Electric guitar is provided by Jimmy Hotz – he gets a notable lengthy solo opportunity on ‘Our Wedding Day’. Hotz is also listed as engineer and associate producer. Most songs written by the pianist Doretta Kinat. Back cover notes include an introduction by Sherman Andrus. A colorful stained glass design spells out the group’s name on the front cover.
