Dave and Dana Price - Satisfied (Original 1975 Private Xian Folk LP)


Great Christian folk album, w/ excellent vocals by Dana & fine guitar (acoustic, electric & 12-string) from Dave (including wicked acoustic slide on the title song).
(That's it, no other instruments & Dave doesn't sing; on one track Dana doubles her vocals, otherwise it's just 1 voice/1 guitar throughout.)
First of 5 albums by this Brit (he) /American (she) couple who were known on the Christian circuit but not really much beyond that.


Rare privately pressed LP out of Baltimore, Maryland.
This has some great folk psych tracks that has a great mix of mellow and dark.

DON PLATT - Sunday (Excellent 1971 US Private Loner Folk LP)


Short album (less than 29 minutes for 14 tracks) with all original compositions.
A great voice for a very great LP with a fantastic A-Side.


Very rare LP and my exemplary is autographed (see front cover).

"No-label release from 1971 recorded in New York. Mostly solo acoustic guitar and vocals with an introspective, melancholy feeling in several places." (Review on ebay)

No track available on youtube ... so I could send some mp3s when you're interested with the record.


Scarce ... and very great LP ... don't miss this one !

MARK JORG - Come Home My Son (1970 or 1973 US Private Folk LP)


"From that pure and simple ’60s breed of folksinger comes Mt. Angel Abbey student Mark Jorg.
He performs ten original songs, usually with just acoustic guitar for backing (a couple songs have assistance from others on flute, second acoustic guitar and female vocal harmony’s). Poetic flowing lyrics, stark atmosphere, competent guitar work, and a convincing tenor voice made for the style add up to a refreshing listening experience. Songs shift around from quiet sensitive moods to bleak minor-key expressions to graceful finger-picked passages to vibrant strummed buildings. Serious tone save for some satirical jabs in ‘Ecology’ (“the war against pollution is going very well, the young protest the old and the old say go to hell”). ‘Master’s Walk’, ‘This Lonely Man’, ‘Man And Wife’, ‘What Have You Done’ and ‘Blind Man’ are some of the other titles. Custom lp from St Benedict, Oregon."
(ebay seller's review)


Truly great LP in my opinion ! 

The last track "Lonely Road" really makes me touch the heavens !
Listen to it :
Another one ?

A little gem from the beginning to the end ! Don't miss it !

THE JORGS - Street Musician (Rare 197? Private US Folk LP)


The Jorgs were the duo of Debbie & Mark Jorg (the Mark Jorg who released the great 'Come Home My Son' LP in 1970).
So I think this "Street Musician" LP also has been released beginning of the 70's.

(Back cover is clean plain white sleeve)

You can listen to some excellent tracks by The Jorgs (or Mark Jorg alone) on youtube.

BRUCE JOHNSON - A Day in My Life (Excellent 1981 US Private Loner Folk LP)


Review found on the web
Midwestern loner folk singer songwriter.
He has sort of mellow vocals and using mostly a 12 string guitar, the whole mix is shadowed at times with the use of a phase shifter and lots of echo effects.
Not much is known about the artist other than he is from Illinois.
Only one copy is known at the moment.
(maybe he was talking about my copy ... but I don't think so - so only two copies are known)



All words and music by Bruce Johnson.
An excellent album from the beginning to the end in my opinion !
Not a weak track on this LP.
