A Brand New Song (CS-5172-LP) 1975?



Fine Minnesota custom in the folky melodic singer-songwriter tradition. Halarna’s vocals and 12-string guitar lead the way, accompanied by bass, drums, simple background vocals and other instruments. Cello and flute bring a special beauty to songs like ‘Giver Of Life’, ‘A Time’ and the title track. Halama also plays organ on a couple occasions, putting a light heartland folk-rock vibe on ‘Suzy’ and ‘Lawyer On My Side’. Also a nice acoustic ballad with gut-string guitar (‘Ginney’) and one country twanger (‘Genesis’). Manufactured by the Special Products Division of Word Records.     (The Archivist, 4th Edition by Ken Scott).
