GRAHAM DAVIES - "... Then I Stood Back" (1976 UK Xian Folk Rock on Sharing Records)


Superb understated folkrock recording from soft-voiced British singer/songwriter. Graham’s songs often coast along to a fast-tempo strum, sometimes accompanied by harmonica (‘The Road Is Hard’, ‘He’s The Way’), other times with fluid electric guitar leads (‘Robert’, ‘What You Did For My Brothers’, ‘You Are The Body Of Christ’ and the rock-and-roller ‘I Look To The Cross’). Some beautiful slower acoustic tracks as well, like ‘God Has Left The Valley’, ‘Where Is Your Faith’, ‘The Waters Of Shiloah’ and ‘But Then I Stood Back’. Light distant behind-the-scenes keyboard activity (synthesizer, organ, piano) and femme backing vocal, along with acoustic guitar, bass and drums.

HAMILTON CAMP - "Welcome to Hamilton Camp" (1969 US Great Folk LP)


On 1969's "Welcome to Hamilton Camp" LP, Hamilton Camp returned largely to his pre-folk-rock roots as a straight folksinger.
Camp played all the guitars and harmonicas and sang all the lead and background voices on this wholly acoustic record; in fact, he did everything, save for a little piano by producer Bobby Paris.
It's a curious mix of Camp originals and covers of songs both famous (by Bob Dylan, Paul Simon, Peter LaFarge, and Leonard Cohen) and obscure (by Patrick Sky, Bob Neuwirth, and Peter Boyd).
Camp's brand of acoustic folk is both moody and haunting, enhanced by some reverb in the production.

JOHN J. FRANCIS - "Breaks, Works and Thoughts" (1973 Oz Folk Psych masterpiece)


John's second album, 'Breaks, Works and Thoughts', was released in 1973 and included the iconic 'Simple Ben', which is featured on the 'Morning of the Earth' movie soundtrack, the hit single 'Play Mumma, Sing Me a Song', as well as the driving 'Bop Right Over You' and the strikingly powerful and distinctively original 'Steel Man'.
'Breaks, Works and Thoughts' is undoubtedly a landmark in Australian music history and was the most nominated album at the 1973 Australasian Radio Awards (the precursor to today’s ARIA Awards) winning the coveted Best Song/Composer of the Year Award for 'Play Mumma, Sing Me a Song'.

TREES - "Let It Out" (1979 US Private Psych Folk LP)


This has that extra cool vibe that makes it one in a hundred for obscure school related folk based but with vocals, keyboards, flute, congas, harmonica, guitar ...
they just capture an innocent vibe with titles like "It Feels So Fine To Smile", "Roll Over", "Step Right In", "Loosen Up Your Body", "Watching The Time Go By"...
amateur young girls many solidly breezy moves, sincere and cool.
Private pressing, very obscure and no connection to other bands using the name Trees.
(review from ebay seller)

I can send some mp3s when you ask me !
