STEVE & ED - "Dream Song" (Rare 1975 US Psych Folk masterpiece)


A surprisingly good folk-pop lp on the vanity label Century that I picked up recently due to my "leave no stock cover behind" compulsion. The notes say it was recorded in a Los Angeles area church, and it has a sort of cavernous low-fi sound quality that I quite enjoy. Very soothing Simon & Garfunkel-esque harmonies on most tracks, with sparse, acoustic heavy arrangements. Recorded in 1975, but tracks like "I Love The Rain" could easily pass for late 60′s to my ears. The majestic, spoken title track is nice as well. (from waxidermy)


Very great 1975 private pressed LP from Steve Hicks and Ed Rosiek.
A top fave of mine !

JED (aka Jed O'Connor aka Jed Silverstar) - "Merlin's Song" (Very rare 1982 US Psyche Folk masterpiece)


"Mystical, medieval folk songs played and sung very convincingly. And unlike some in the genre, I'm under the suspicion that the psych aspect is unintentional, but rather a natural setting for the songs that were written. This was recorded as some kind of educational project for a Florida based program specializing in all things from the Arthurian period. As far as the music, it's beautiful minor key folk with intricately woven male and female vocals. Fans of bands like Stone Angel, etc. would do well to track this down. Makes you want to dance with the jester".


Another of my top ten "desert island" LPs.

JILL CISLAGHI - "Friends of Mine" (Very rare 1977 US masterpiece)


One of my top ten US private pressed LPs.
Jill Cislaghi wrote and recorded her only album in her senior year in 1977 at Regis College, in Massachusetts near where she grew up.
Cislaghi pressed 500 copies on Massachusetts' own vanity custom-pressing plant Fleetwood Recording Co. She made this record for her friends and wound up selling nearly every copy at her college, so this LP is incredibly hard to come by now.

REALITY FOLK - "Profile : Reality Folk" (1973 incredibly rare UK Folk LP - Profile GMOR 001)


Quaint lp of delicate folk music with precious harmonies from Barbara, Cob, Clive, and Steve, accompanied by acoustic guitars, double bass, and tambourine.
Few original titles but great deal of British charm enlivening cherished traditionals like ‘When The Stars Begin To Fall’, ‘When I Survey The Wonderous Cross’ to a Welsh tune, ‘We Shall Not Be Moved’, and ‘Amazing Grace’.  Also songs by Parchment, Judy MacKenzie, Tom Paxton, and The Seekers.  ‘The Football Supporter’ is an interesting verbal soliloquy recited with strong Cockney accent in the tradition of ‘First Day In Church’ (Nigel Goodwin, Larry Norman) comparing cheering football fans to Jesus’ glum silent supporters.
The first release on this very rare highly sought after collectible Profile label.
Dark red cover with four black silhouetted profiles.
(The Archivist, 4th edition by Ken Scott)

A big rarity we have here ! Seldom seen in this condition ...

TURLEY RICHARDS - "From Darkness to Light - Solo Concert" (Very rare 1972 US Psych Folk LP)


Turley Richards (born Richard Turley June 12, 1941 in Charleston, West Virginia) is an American singer and guitarist.
Richards was blinded in the left eye at the age of four in an archery accident, and lost sight in the right eye as well some years later. He first began playing in a group called The Five Pearls while still a teen in the 1950s. His first appearance on record was a single titled "All About Ann", released on Cincinnati, Ohio label Fraternity Records.
He moved to Los Angeles with an ensemble in the early 1960s, but his band failed and he returned to West Virginia. Later in the 1960s he moved to New York. He played the uptown East Side local Bar's (Malachy's II) (72nd & Lexington) and eventually found success in New York. He released his debut album on Warner Bros. Records in 1970. He scored two minor hit singles in the US in the early 1970s.

Turley Richards' "From Darkness To Light - Solo Concert" is the most complex and illustrative album of his incredible talents.
Very rare Psych Folk LP !
