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."

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.
