WAYNE MONBLEAU - "To My Shepherd" (1977 US Private Xian Folk)


Wayne Monbleau is that rare example of a folk-singer who can do magical things within a purely acoustic setting.
He’s similar to Bruce Cockburn in that respect, but there is also an uncanny resemblance to Ian Anderson of Jethro Tull, not only in the vocals but also the excellent guitar work and overall progressive acoustic style.
In particular ‘2,000 Years Ago’, ‘John The Baptist’ and ‘The Way, The Truth, And The Life’ all sound like they were cut from the same cloth as some of the more unplugged Tull endeavors (such as Minstrel In The Gallery).
All ten songs are strong, making To My Shepherd one of the most cohesive and remarkable folk recordings in Christian music.
(Ken Scott – The Archivist).


Another Xian Folk LP but an excellent album in my opinion !

MIKE JOHNSON - "Lord Doctor" (Great 1970 US Private Psych Folk Rock LP)


Rare 1972 Private Press Christian Psych Folk Rock album from Mike Johnson (Freedom Light Records NS-2037).
Lyrically and musically, this album is a journey through Mike Johnson's longing for a better day for mankind.
From the intense, apocalyptic visions in the storytelling of "Cause And Effect" (complete with fuzz guitar and a dark, foreboding rhythm) to the fantastic arp synth/prog psych workout lead-in to "Pride" fans of private psych folk rock will not be disappointed.

JOE COHEN - "Writings on My Wall" (1982 US great Singer-songwiter LP)


Chicago-based singer/songwriter Cohen offers a collection of introspective tunes focusing on love. The tracks are lean and primarily acoustic, complementing Cohen's spare, haunting vocals.

A surprisingly pleasant 80's folk pop trip with some loner undertones as well.

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.
