Scott Wesley Brown – SWB – 1981

Scott’s sixth studio album strongly leans to the Worship music genre. Not saying this is a bad thing it’s just where Scott positioned himself in the industry. I’ll be the first to admit I never listened to his work back in the 80’s but he was still well known to me and my circle of friends. It’s strange that wile we would never listen to artists like Scott we always had a strong respect for what he did. Let’s remember that it was guys like him that made the money for the labels so they could experiment with the artists that I liked and wanted to listen to. This album wasn’t one of his most successful with only two charting singles. “Learning To Live Like Jesus” made it to #6 and “This Little Child” made it to #20. Certainly a good album by good metrics but for Scott is wasn’t his usual dominance of the charts. Now that’s it’s years later and I am more able to recognize good music whether I like it or not I do recognize that Scott was probably one of the best artists of the period. While his vocals weren’t the best his songwriting was top notch.
