Brother Brian - Except Like A Child (1977)

Genre: Jesus Music Era
Password: 2015

While most musical priests seem to favor the simple folk style, Brother Brian Youngward chose more of a pastoral soft rock direction. Most of the songs on this North Hollywood, California private press are mellow, some with a 3/4-time country gospel-piano mindset. Other instruments include guitar, electric piano, synth strings, flute, cello and drums. Unlike a lot of the robed ones he’s actually got the kind of voice that’s well suited to the style. A couple tracks of a more progressive nature stand out among the rest. ‘Touch Me Not’ is a good percussion-embellished 12-string anthem, while ‘There Are Saints’ features some excellent lead electric guitar, briskly running along with the feel of early Caravan both musically and vocally. Also a nice soft jazz touch to the closing song ‘Evening’. Brother Brian is a member of The Order of The Holy Cross, a monastic order in the worldwide Anglican community. (Ken Scott - Archivist)
