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.

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.
