Another fine album featuring eleven original songs in Kendrick’s mellow style. Opens with one of his most dynamic New Testament stories in song, ‘Peter At The Breaking Of The Bread’. Several of the titles are slow, moody and melancholy, with piano often favored over guitar, sometimes reflecting on themes of loneliness, shallowness and emptiness (‘Geordie’, ‘Loneliness’, ‘John Smith’), yet not without presenting the hope that comes at the “breaking of the dawn”. Brisk minor-key mood for ‘Why Do You Weep’. Closes with the acoustic ballad ‘In Your Way’. Participants include Mo Witham (lead guitar), Peter Banks (organ) and Keith Routledge (string and brass arrangements). Gatefold cover. (Ken Scott – Archivist).
