The quietly powerful music of Lazarus won a limited but fervent audience during the early ‘70s. The Texas folk-pop trio’s 1971 self-titled debut album is an overlooked gem, filled with gorgeous vocal harmonies and understated yet stirring acoustic instrumental work. Lead singer Bill Hughes’ high, pure tenor serves as a perfect vehicle for the yearning and reverence embodied in his lyrics. Lazarus’ Christian faith — linking them with the Jesus Music movement of their era — is reflected both directly and obliquely on this album. “Refugee,” “Whatever Happened,” and especially “Circuit Rider” (a haunting Western-themed tune sparked by Hughes’ plaintive fiddle) depict a pilgrim’s lonesome travels across a spiritually barren landscape. Balancing these unsettled tunes are such ringing statements of belief as “Blessed” and “Rivers.” The songs benefit from the unadorned production of Peter Yarrow and Phil Ramone, who capture the trio’s sound with exceptional clarity and vividness. There’s no denying that Lazarus is an album of its time but these songs are more than just period pieces.
