The 10:15: Making Tracks

no label 2345 (1970)

Some people will find the connection between “folk music” and “the Bronx” akin to salsa coming from New York City, but here it is anyway.  This album, produced right about the time the Novus Ordo Missae was made official, is a rambling folk album whose style is, in many ways, more natural than one generally gets with Roman Catholic works. There is some very outstanding instrumental work (which is in general a cut above a lot of what got played during Mass in those days) and the vocals are reasonable.  The only real drawback is that the theology is dicey in spots, even by the standards of the immediate post-Vatican II era.

One of the artists was T. Shawn Tracy, O.S.A., who went on to have a successful career both as an Augustinian priest and a composer and performer of Catholic music.  What Augustine would have thought of this album is an interesting topic, but while we’re thinking about that…

The songs:

  1. Come to the table of the lord
  2. Peace i give to you
  3. Blessed are you
  4. We are the people of the lord
  5. We came
  6. Come to me I’ve come to you
  7. The long song
  8. Joe’s acclamation
  9. Revelation
  10. Just a closer walk with thee
