DUMIN & CAVANAGH - "Dark Side of the Moon" (1969 US private gem on the RPC label)


"Mega rare & totally unknown 1969 private press from this gentle, moody, beautiful teen loner folk duo.
About half & half originals and covers, but the whole album has the same sweet vibe.
All the originals are real melancholy beauties, with warm acoustic guitars and their two voices weaving together in unusual ways. nice natural reverb, as it was recorded in an empty classroom after hours!
Always reminds me of the most fragile moments of Kusudo & Worth (and its just as rare)."
Review from ebay seller.

One of the rarest RPC release and the best one in my opinion !
This seller was right, all the originals are truly amazing melancholy beauties.

ALAN DYSON - "The Still Small Voice of Alan Dyson" (1968 UK Folk on Pye label)


Major label rarity from 1968.
US-early sixties sounding folk LP.
Very good singer in the style of an early Shawn Philips, Phil Ochs or a bit like the late Bert Jansch.
And his guitarplay is better than average.
A very nice addition to any UK-folk collection.
