Man Of Sorrows (no label 27499) 1975?



From the name you’d guess maybe a church choir or something. Well it isn’t. It’s ten Cincinnati cutting-edgers whose exceptional custom recording artfully blends elements of progressive acoustic and rural rock, subtly enveloping them in a dreamy folk/psych atmosphere. Devout songwriting and heartfelt presentation really hits home on pieces like the title track. Nice combination of acoustic and electric guitars, plus some piano. Lead vocals by Jim Bankowski whose fragile delivery bears some resemblance to Jimmy Hotz. A female singer steps in for the moody flute-accompanied ‘Rose Of Sharon’. Percussion, production and mix-down by Larry Wallbrech who was also the drummer for Millennium with Bob and Jayne Farrell. (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.
