Clive Palmer, Mick Bennet and John Bidwell played out their psychedelic interpretation of homegrown british rural music prior to the rise of the progressive folk explosion as Cob (short for Clive Palmer’s original band but written as Cob). Clive Palmer was an original member of the Incredible String Band and still creates and performs in his own unique style, incorporating traditional european and eastern instrumentation, surreal lyricism and 4 track production techniques. Quintessentially the best of pastoral, occasionally dark British acid folk.

Bob Desper

Post  Spellbound on Sat 30 Aug - 21:18


http://pitchfork.com/reviews/albums/14440-new-sounds/ wrote:Accidentally blinded at adolescence, the Portland-based Bob Desper released just one record-- in 1974, and limited to a 500-copy pressing on a local Christian imprint-- before fading into the woodwork, leaving only this tiny morsel of music behind for anyone to find and follow back to its source. Which, inevitably, someone at Discourage Records belatedly did, discovering in the process that Desper is alive and relatively well at age 60, and that this modest forgotten record floats from the past to the present with an undeniable insistence, pulling attention to itself until you can't pay attention to anything else.

Indeed, New Sounds is a classic lost record, though whether it counts as a lost classic is pretty relative, considering that even folk heavy hitters Nick Drake or Bert Jansch were once tagged as totally obscure by all but the most ardent followers of the form. New Sounds isn't the sort of record that would appeal to casual toe-dippers, anyway. Rather, it's the kind of recording, like Gary Higgins' similarly recently unearthed Red Hash, pretty much designed to be lost and rediscovered decades later. It benefits from the mystery, and even if Desper himself (sadly no longer able to play guitar, thanks to a recent injury) has been found, it's almost better to listen to the record imagining Desper was lost as well.

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Simon_Finn_%28musician%29 wrote:Simon Finn is an English psych folk musician.

Finn was born 4 March 1951 in Godalming, Surrey, moved to London in 1967, where his first performance was opening for Al Stewart at the Marquee Club in Soho.[1] He released his Pass the Distance LP in 1970, which in later years attained legendary status as it was so hard to obtain.[citation needed] The album featured contributions from Robert Buckland, Paul Burwell, Ken Elliot, and David Toop.[2] "Pass the Distance" was remastered and re-released on Durtro/Jnana records in 2004 and again in 2008 on vinyl by Mayfair Music. In the same year, after a thirty-five year absence from the music scene, he began touring again. His first performance was in support of the band Current 93 at St George the Martyr Church in Toronto in June 2004. Since then he has performed in Moscow, Athens, Glasgow, Barcelona, New York, Chicago and many other cities around the world. His second album, Magic Moments, was his first new recording in 35 years and was released by Durtro/Jnana.

Finn resided in Montreal, Canada for most of the interim, and now divides his time between London and Montreal. He had been touring extensively both as a solo artist and as a member of Current 93. He is now again strictly a solo artist. His latest release, Accidental Life, appeared in July 2007 on his own label Ten-to-One.

Simon Finn has played shows with Current 93, Graham Coxon, Thurston Moore, Antony and the Johnsons and more.

http://www.othermusic.com/products/philip-john-lewin-am-i-really-here-all-alone wrote:What we have here is a fairly obscure, but totally, totally wonderful, privately released folk album from 1973. Philip John Lewin hails from Cortland, NY, but emigrated to Canada around the time this LP was made. He's been there so long he's even got a page on the Museum of Canadian Music website. You can also check a great interview with the man from a few years ago over at Jack D. Fleischer's (who you might know from the Donnie & Joe and Lewis liner notes) Out of the Bubbling Dusk blog.

Recorded on a two-track tape machine and privately issued by the artist, it features a charming lo-fi sensibility that is very affecting in its shambolic-ness. He has very personal sense of delivery that reminds me a bit of Ed Askew, in that he uses his life's story to sort of constantly take a different track to these perfect instances of tape-hiss laden revelations and clarity. It's a kind of loner folk that doesn't seem forlorn, full of loose and ragged acoustic guitars and distant-sounding piano. There's a handful of perfect tracks on here, not least of which is the incredible travelogue "Back Home to You," which I swear I must have played fity times in a row the first time I heard it. Highly recommended. (June 25, 2014)

He organized a 14 piece teenage band and played thru-out Tennessee, Kentucky, Virginia and North Carolina. The back of the records suggests that this band probably had the first full set of drums used in country music. I’m not so sure about that, but who knows? After five years of of playing in that band, Al left and drifted around from state to state working odd jobs at night clubs and factories and he even tried his hand at construction work and truck driving. “Did a little bit of everything and what I haven’t done, I’ve been accused of.”

The album is predominantly a singer-songwriter, folk-rock album with superb musicianship by the accompanying band and heavy use of the moog, which consequently provides the album a progressive touch.

The Goldebriars

Post  Spellbound on Thu 4 Dec - 0:01



http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/The_Goldebriars wrote:The Goldebriars were an early 1960s folk quartet, which is most notable for including a young Curt Boettcher as a guitarist and vocalist. The group also included two sisters, Dotti and Sheri Holmberg, with Ron Neilson, as lead guitarist and banjo player. They recorded two obscure albums for Epic Records in 1964 before adding drummer Ron Edgar to their lineup, who would later be a part of the groups The Music Machine and The Millennium. They recorded a third album in late 1964. A single from this proposed album, "June Bride Baby" b/w "I'm Gonna Marry You" was released in early 1965, but the group broke up afterwards and the album remains unreleased.

http://www.allmusic.com/artist/folkal-point-mn0002076848/biography wrote:From the Bristol urban region of England, the group Folkal Point put out a rare album of acoustic British folk in 1971, mixing traditional material with covers of songs by contemporary folk-rooted singer/songwriters like Joni Mitchell, Bob Dylan, and Tom Paxton. Their most distinguishing feature was lead singer Cherie Musialik, who had the kind of pure upper-register vocal tone possessed by many of the finest British woman folksingers of the period. Only 500 copies of their self-titled LP were pressed (and half of those were reportedly lost in a flood), and as of 35 years later, the album had yet to be reissued on CD.

Post  Spellbound on Fri 26 Dec - 20:59



http://www.allmusic.com/artist/chris-britton-mn0000105432/biography wrote:As guitarist for the Troggs, Chris Britton made important contributions to the raw British Invaders' sound with his crunchy, wiry style. Though Reg Presley was the Troggs' principal lead singer and songwriter, Britton also took occasional lead vocals and wrote a bit of material on their records, the odd primitive buzzing psychedelia of "Maybe the Madman" and the sultry midtempo rocker "Say Darlin'" (both used on 1968 B-sides) being the highlights in that respect. It's not even too well-known by many big Troggs fans that Britton did an obscure solo LP in 1970, As I Am. Though it betrayed his modest gifts/limitations as a singer/songwriter, it was an agreeable, varied batch of period British psychedelic pop songs, sung by Britton in his idiosyncratic, diffidently cool and amused style.

Peter Harris

Post  Spellbound on Tue 6 Jan - 16:34


http://urbanbower.blogspot.gr/2012/03/murray-songriverbird-cries-peter-harris.html wrote:Peter Harris was a school teacher within the NSW school system and was posted to the area around 1974. He wrote a song about the PS Ruby and recorded a full album back in Sydney which was released on Ritz records, a subsidiary of Festival. Ruby was the title track of the album (and we have a copy at HOT FM)

When I was on the tourist Board we had two goes to get a good song on Mildura. In 1975 we got the late Tex Williams to record locally a single "The Paddleboat Song" and "The Mildura Song". It was recorded at the Norco Studios in Mildura by the late Brian Norris and issued as NCP 208. Both sides were written by Tex and Paul Williams, who were living out at Ruby Hayles place at Trentham Cliffs.

Around 1977 we did a similar experiment with Peter Harris and he wrote and recorded "The Murray Song" and "The River Bird Cries" It was recorded at Nor-Co and issued with the catalogue number of NCP 243.

Soon after that Peter left the district and from memory went to the Casino area of NSW [...] Peter did a lot of work with school kids on both sides of the Murray River during his time here.

Harris's album Ruby is a very sought after record today and regularly sells for well over $100. Harris also recorded an album with one of his students Dave Madden, called Fool's Paradise which is equally revered by LP collectors (and priced accordingly) but is also available on iTunes in a slightly more affordable format.

Tia Blake

Post  Spellbound on Fri 9 Jan - 22:45



http://www.othermusic.com/products/tia-blake-folksongs-ballads wrote:n 1971, Tia Blake, then barely eighteen years old and with little money saved, moved alone to Paris where she would soon fall in with an international crew of folk-music enthusiasts. They taught her guitar to accompany the voice she'd been singing with privately since childhood, worked up a repertoire of songs popularized during the folk-music revival of the '60s, and in short order scored a record deal with SFP, a tiny but adventurous label that more usually went in for free jazz, ethnic, and experimental music. The results quite honestly almost beggar belief -- that an album recorded by a mere teenager, and mostly comprised of familiar tunes, could exhibit such remarkable depth. On the greatest tracks there's almost something mysterious happening, as Blake sings with a world-weary tone that totally belies her young age. I've listened to many of these songs back to back with their more famous renditions, and it's amazing how Blake strips any commercialism from her renditions, cutting straight to the essence of the material, and making all other comers sound impossibly corny and pop. At times it reminds me of no less than the great Jackson C. Frank's lone album in that there's often an extra-dimensional depth, or sadness even, that lifts the material into the realms of the unreal.
