LYNN STROUD - The Harvest Is Plentiful [USA xian folk rock 1978]
Noble effort from Knoxville, Tennessee male singer, songwriter and guitarist. A rich pastoral heartland sound encompassing Lightfoot/Croce-ish folk, playful country rock, acoustic ballads, even some harmonica boogie. ‘The Curtain’ is the standout track – an excellent moody rural progressive ballad featuring a guitar/mellotron combination not unlike The John Carlson Band or Thomas Goodlunas & Panacea. The jangly dual acoustic guitar often makes for a pleasant Keaggy-ish quality. Interesting cover painting depicting faces amidst stalks of wheat. (The Archivist, 4th edition by Ken Scott).
