Only In God (RPC 510631/2) 1978



Simple pleasant homemade guitar-and-voice sounds from young female singer. Often a stirring moody presence to her music, crossing over in solemn haunting loner realms on tracks like ‘Who Has Known’ and ‘Father, Mercy’ (both of which are St. Louis Jesuits songs). Other standouts include covers of Carey Landry (‘Isaiah 49’), Joe Wise (‘Song Of Blessing’) and a couple more St. Louis Jesuits songs (‘1 Lift Up My Soul’, the title track). Also one song written by Barbara (‘John 17’). Very pretty voice, with touching self-harmony that melts my heart. Barbara’s guitar is joined by two other guitarists, plus occasional low-key drums. She’s from Leominster, Massachusetts. (The Archivist, 4th Edition by Ken Scott).\

I have not acquired this album yet. Thank you Donald for the rear cover photo and track list.
