Distance Of Doors (Pilgrim King ICES 47) 1973 UK *
Sometimes likened to Fairport Convention’s Sandy Denny, this exceptional female folksinger has an accomplished style that’s immediately accessible, not to mention miles above most Christian offerings. Distance 0f Doors is a lovely recording that resonates with the authenticity and acoustic purity of the best of British folk, her penetrating vocals backed by guitars, mandolin, autoharp and flute. Several of the songs are her own compositions, including ‘Inasmuch’, ‘City Song’, ‘Have We Changed?’, ‘It Is Written Of You’ and the title track. Also covers of Sidney Carter (‘When I Needed A Neighbour’, ‘Judas And Mary’), Paul Simon (‘I Am A Rock’), Gordon Lightfoot (‘Home From The Forest’), ‘Morning Has Broken’, ‘Simple Gifts’ and ‘Jesus Knows’. See also EP section. (The Archivist, 4th Edition by Ken Scott).
