Charlotte Deak Hardage - Sound of the Ram's Horn : From Pyramids of Snow and Ice (1976 US Private Folk LP on Invikta House, Inc.)


All originals by Charlotte Deak Hardage with beautiful ethereal vocals by Lara Mitchell and Don Weems.
Reminds me a little bit of Helene's voice on the Helene & Marc - "The Beginning" LP.


Listen to these tracks :

&


I think this LP has been released on the 27th of July 1976 seeing the catalog number (and not in 1978).

Another rare and very interesting record !

Threk Michaels - I Am Just A Troubadour (Amazing 1979 US Folk Real People LP)


Third album issued by this Bob Dylan copy !
A copy ???  Surely not !
Threk Michaels has his own identity and he's an amazing singer-songwriter.
And he sings playing guitar and harmonica … like Dylan.

Brian Short - Anything for a Laugh (Excellent 1971 UK SSW LP - Dutch issue on the Bovema label)


Really great album of Brian Short, ex Black Cat Bones' singer.
Short's got a way of making songs that are at once chilled and somewhat gloomy, yet quite epic. 
Sometimes the sound is loungy, sometimes it's baroque-folky, and a very cool sax leads the way out on "Blue Tuesday".  Meanwhile it's just straight up guitar 'n' piano classic rock on "Don't You Need Me Anymore".  And it all just somehow reminds of Joe Cocker's version of "A Little Help From My Friends". 
It's a great obscure little album !


Many tracks listenable on YouTube :
