Born From Above (Superior Sound SSS-000-3) 1976
Wholesome relaxed out-in-the-country granola atmosphere with glimmers of John Denver, Harry Chapin and Jim Croce on this Florida folk-singer’s fine custom recording. Simple presentation, usually with fresh 12-string sounds in the foreground, backed by bass, banjo and drums. Includes a catchy pickin’ version of ‘My Country ‘Tis Of Thee’ suitable for square dancing. Four Hosler originals (the best tracks) plus covers of Kinfolk’s ‘Alpha & Omega’, Jimmy Owens’ ‘He Came In Love’, ‘Like A River Glorious’, ‘Battle Hymn Of The Republic’, ‘A Mighty Fortress Is Our God’. Nicely done. (The Archivist, 4th Edition by Ken Scott).
