Linda Rich "There's More To Living Than I Know So Far"
(US Christian Folk 1969)

by hcrink:
Linda Rich's first lp on the Chicago based IVR label from 1969 is an amazingly beautiful set of original xian folk-pop. Outstanding sparse production, excellent songwriting, and Linda's understated, yet confident vocals make this a record that reaches way beyond any kind of novelty factor often used to "handicap" Christian records. In fact, like many of the best xian records, there are not constant knock-you-over-the-head Jesus saves type lyrics - rather, her songs are very personal and introspective. All tracks are either totally acoustic, or very lightly and tasefully orchestrated in a style somewhat reminiscant of an early Leonard Cohen album. Apparently she has two other lp's on IVR that I'm anxious to hear.

Linda is one of my favorite folkies, Christian or otherwise.

If anyone knows where one can find her other two albums, please send me an email. Thanks.

Hi!
I'm a big fan of your blog and I've lost my copy (if an mp3 colection of files can be called so).

Could yo re-up this album?

OI'm trying to find some albums from other singers in Wayfaring Strangers: ladies from the canyon (Carla Sciaky or Judy Kelly) but it seems impossible!

Do you have something by them?

Thanks a lot, and forgive my bad english!
