Barbie (Sipple) - Journey to Jesus (1971)


Seems like on more than a few occasions I’ve been caught comparing Christian female folksingers to Joan Baez (which probably speaks more to my limited knowledge of folk music than to who they really sound like). Well this girl really really does sound like Joan Baez. Barbara Sipple (aka Barbie) keeps her folk music sweet and simple, the way it oughta be done. She’s assisted solely by two acoustic guitarists, a bass and one appearance of banjo. Five of the eight songs have a few friends (including kids) in the background casually joining in on the choruses. Those songs are fine, but the better ones have just Barbie singing without any backups (‘The Lord Is The Keeper’, ‘Don’t You Go Tryin’ and the especially beautiful ‘Living Bread’). Often one guitar strumming while another picks out the lead. Has a wonderful live gathered-around-the-fireplace warmth to it that makes me wish I’d been there singin’ along. (Ken Scott - Archivist)

  1. Barbie Sipple is a rare gem in Christian music as she is one who can hold her own with very little accompaniment. Her songs are simple yet effective, her guitar playing displays a rare God given talent that is thoroughly enjoyable and I'm disappointed that she did not have a wider audience by being picked up by a major label. Billy Ray Hearn would've done wonders with her as he did with Janny Grine. I hope that she is serving the Lord and a church somewhere is benefiting from her contributions. GBU Barbie, the more I play your 2 LP's the more I love them
