Love Is The Reason (King WR5172) 1978



Otherwise known as Twelve Songs Of Love And Celebration. The guitar-only format is gone, exchanged for a gentle easygoing folk/light-rock style with Mark on acoustic guitar, percussion and string synthesizer, plus others on piano, flute, cello, drums and backing vocals. Most of the titles are newly arranged versions of songs from Searching and Resolutions. Says on the back that he’s written over a hundred songs. Custom label out of Pomona, California. Alas, it appears that the ponytail hath been snipped. (The Archivist, 4th Edition by Ken Scott).

I have not acquired this album yet. Thank you Ken for the front cover photo and Discogs for the remaining album photos and the track list.
