Rick Watson - The Light Shines On (Very rare 1979 US Private Xian Folk LP)

From somewhere in the middle of North Dakota comes this excellent artsy custom of acoustic rock, lonesome folk meditations and rough-hewn out-doorsy rural rock.
Nice unrefined bluesy electric guitar graces the latter, while the folk-edged material is delivered with the beauty and sensitivity of early Bruce Cockburn often enveloped with a stark solemn presence.
Rick plays acoustic and electric guitar and wrote all the twelve titles, including ‘Candles Burn in the Distance’, ‘The Rich Man and Lazarus’, ‘Lady Sleeps With the Light On’, ‘Whistler of Darkness and Dawn’, ‘Sea of Mystery’, and ‘Out of the Storm Into the Sun’.
Additional instruments includes bass, fiddle (one song), harmony vocals, and synthesizer (sounding pleasantly trippy on the title track).
Remarkable b&w cover design/ graphics. 
(Review from The Archivist, 4th edition, by Ken Scott).

Really an excellent album we have here … and very rare.
The folk-edged tracks are my favourites but the whole album is very consistent.
