Released in Switzerland in 1980, Fingerprint includes
a wide variety of Mark’s early styles including light rock
(“I’m in Chains”), James Taylor ballads (“Nowadays”) country
hokey (“Just the Same”), early CCM/Pat Terry (“One More
Time”), John Denver (“Epistle”), live Looney Tunes-type
silliness (“Es Tut Mir Leid”) and Norman-Stonehill silliness
(“Threefold Amen”—actually Mark Heard style silliness,
but Norman & Stonehill are better known and did similar
Mark’s production & engineering talents
are already as evident as his musical talents. Mark &
Janet did the photography, and Janet added some BGV.
This is an excellent album, if far different than his later
Reissued on CD in the U.S. in 1995.
