MARTIN McBAIN - "Winter ... on the Harbour" LP + 2 singles (all 3 records EXC / EXC)


Original pressing on the small Tasmanian independent label, Candle Records, from 1983.
This truly is an amazing discovery.
It shoots virtually to the top of the list of Australian 70's-ish acoustic acid folk LPs.

A real little gem in my opinion !

His 7" single from 1984.
The 'A' side is a song from his super-rare psych-folk LP, "Winter...On The Harbour", but is a totally different recorded version.
Whereas the LP version is strictly acoustic, this version sees him with full band, still very folk-y and ethereal though.
The 'B' side was, at the time, a totally new song and is equally as good. Both sides are full of melody, with gorgeous melodious vocals, and superb lyrics - of the ilk of mid-'60's Dylan ... he was obviously a thinker.
