Description: A “Soundtrack to the Book.” Inspired by and based on the best-selling Christian allegory, Hinds’ Feet on High Places, a modern Pilgrim’s Progress where the protagonist is a girl named Much-Afraid. Original music reflects the story’s action and many moods. LP includes a four-page synopsis of the story with color photographs, including lyrics (while supplies last).
Doug's fourth album, "Hinds' Feet," with orchestral arrangements performed by the Royal Philharmonic Orchestra (Doug conducting), represented a departure in style, but became the best selling of Doug's albums. It still speaks to old and new listeners alike.
