MICHAEL OMARTIAN /White Horse 1974?

White Horse (ABC Dunhill DSD-50185) 1974

Christian rock went high-tech with this producer/keyboardist/singer’s mainstream release, later picked up for the Christian market by Myrrh records. Artsy, progressive rock compositions with some pop hooks and classical influences, all with a unique style and sparkling clean production that ought to give synthesizer lovers plenty of opportunity to drool while they crank up their expensive stereos. Michael is composer of all the music and sings lead vocals, while wife Stormie provides the lyrics and assists on backing vocals. Michael utilizes numerous keyboards including synthesizers, clavinet, classical piano, organ and honky-tonk piano. Some tough electric guitar as well on the heavy brass-rock opener ‘Jeremiah’, the climactic ballad ‘Add Up The Wonders’ and the superb seven-minute apocalyptic progressive title track. ‘Silver Fish’ and ‘Take Me Down’ also reveal art-rock influences, while ‘Fat City’ takes a fun clavinet-loaded sidestep into funky pop-rock. Just listen to that boy bang the ivories on ‘The Rest Is Up To You’. On the quieter more contemplative end are moody ballads like ‘The Orphan’ and ‘Right From The Start’. This album has rightly remained a classic over the years. The Myrrh release (MSA 6564) comes in a single-slip cover, while the original Dunhill issue has a much nicer gatefold cover. (The Archivist by Ken Scott, 4th Edition)

In my opinion these two albums are must have albums.


01 - Jeremiah
02 - Fat City
03 - The Orphan
04 - Silver Fish
05 - Add Up The Wonders
06 - Take Me Down
07 - Right From The Start
