Aaah, echoes of an age. Days of Kendrick the travelling folkie, journeying to an endless stream of church halls, coffee bars, rallies, and the like, bringing a touch of finesse to the proceeding as multitudes reared on Youth Praise wondered whatever he was on about. This tape's one of a cluster of re-released classic albums issued under Kingsway's Right Price series. So how's this 18-year old, bewhiskered material stood the test of time? Well, I'd really forgotten how good these early Kendrick ditties were. Hearing them again is like running into an old pal from years ago. Amazing how many of these songs had imprinted themselves on the memory. Touching lyrics with wonderful melodies, such as "Fisherman's Song", "I'd Like To Be A Martyr", "There's A Door". The slightly weird excursion into hippy-loud "Wildwood", and even the delightful echoes of Gilbert O'Sullivan on "Yours Faithfully". The tragedy is that these superbly-crafted songs never reached a wider audience. Not many Christians have ever got into the finer points of folk music, but people out there in the folk music world who support the genre regularly would have really appreciated the subtle craftsmanship and sheer good taste of Graham's output. Classic material.
