Original Bluer cover art

Early contemporary Christian album, piano-based pop style, full of honest feeling and faith. Doug’s first solo album is rough in spots, but also has some great moments. It was produced on a shoestring budget and recorded on an 8-track recorder. (See left for original artwork. The new version takes a lot less ink.)

See album credits and notes for lyrics, original liner notes and more recent musings. (Original LP cover opened up, revealing notes on the songs, and included a separate lyric sheet.)
