"Produced by ex-Silly Wizard member [the late] Johnny Cunningham... Collins' originals, with additional material co-written with fantasy/children's book author Jane Yolen ("Ballad of the White Seal Maid"), and a stunning version of Bob Franke's definitive "For Real"."

There's a Light, produced by famed Scottish fiddler Johnny Cunningham, was originally released on Green Linnet Records in 1985. Out of print for several years, it is once again available on CD.
There's A Light includes Lui's interpretation of Bob Franke's wonderful song "For Real," and the first Jane Yolen poem that she set to music, the haunting "Ballad of the White Seal Maid."
There's also a wild arrangement of the Sacred Harp song "Ecstasy," complete with French horns and trumpets - "guess that's what happens when you turn a crazy Scot and a Vermonter loose in the studio together. I still remember what a gas it was recording that song. All through the project, Johnny kept saying "trust me" and I'd give him the go-ahead.
"He always gave me veto power in case I didn't like his ideas after they were on tape, but I found him to be a brilliant producer, I always liked the ideas he came up with. Most of the songs are quite simply produced - Johnny is one for "less is more" - but we did let ourselves play with the song Ecstasy.
"We had some help from several gifted musicians, including David Darling on cello, Leo Kretzner on dulcimer, and Sally Rogers and Howie Bursen on harmony vocals. Special thanks to my friends Paul and Sue Wanner for making this re-release possible. "
