Gene Cotton


After a couple mellow Impact recordings, folk singer Gene Cotton increased his hair length and emerged with a more serious artistic sound. "In the Gray of the Morning" starts off with a take on the Moody Blues’ "Question," a phrase that inspired the album title. Originals such as "Apathy," "American Indian Blues," "Opry House Blues," "Lessons of History," along with Dylan’s "When the Ship Comes In" are toned down as far as the Christian message is concerned, though the beautiful acoustic track "Blessed" is pretty straightforward.
