Hammy, what is
the "Calvary Cross" you refer to? Is it on this album?
An Unfortunate Omission in "Calvary Cross"
Yes, in response to previous reviewer--this is the last song on the disc, a long, ruminative yet deceptively intense piece that sounds like nothing else I've ever heard. Unfortunate that it is not included here.
Referring to Hammys review; everything being personal, to me 'The Calvary Cross" just doesn't compare to 'Dimming of the Day" by Linda Thompson or Richard's '1952 Vincent Black Lightening". With all due respect Hammy, 'The Calvary Cross is a fine opus, but just a little too strungout.
