Dillard J. Hays - ST (Excellent 1978 US Private Outsider Rural Folk LP)


Rarely seen privately pressed Loner Folk LP issued in 1978 on Prestige Productions Records.
All originals written and all instruments and voices by Dillard J. Hays, a singer songwriter from Birmingham, Alabama.


I didn't find any song on YouTube so I can send some mp3 files when you're interested with the record.


Really a great LP I'm offering here for sale !

I add the Dillard J. Hays' single released in 1979 - 'Wish I Knew' / 'The Minstrel Boy' - with the LP !

Young and Restless - ST (Great 1981 US Private Rural Folk LP)


This is an original copy of this 1981 moody rural folk-rock LP from Omaha, Nebraska.


Attractive and still almost unknown rural rock-country rock from the Midwest.
The album has a mellow, romantic undertone which combines well with the pleasant male and female vocals and pro-sounding electric backing.
The best tracks like 'Bounty Hunter' and 'Gini' sound not unlike Modlin & Scott.

Marilyn von Waldner - What Return Can I Make ? - Songs From the Barrington Carmel (1979 US Private Xian Folk LP)


Rhode Island girl’s homemade album of twelve folk originals presented with a melodic combination of acoustic guitars, flute and piano. Catholic apparently – she has a few initials after her name and ties to the Association Of Contemplative Sisters.
Several tracks have that pleasant female folksinger vibe, with moods ranging from the upbeat ‘In Quest Of Wisdom’ to the beautiful somber ballad ‘Lord, How You Must Love Me’.  Some like ‘The Lord Has Done Great Things For Us’ and ‘The Lord Is My Light And My Salvation’ bring in six fellow Sisters on backing vocals. Viola on a couple tracks, trumpet on another.
(from The Archivist by Ken Scott, 4th Edition)


"What Return Can I Make? Songs from the Barrington Carmel," by Marilyn von Waldner, released on ACS in the U.S. in 1979.
Superb and unknown private issue folk psych by Rhode Island Carmelite sister - stirring, plangent folk, all tracks sell-penned.

Cleveland Francis - Follow Me (Amazing 1970 US Private Soul Folk LP)


Really great LP we have here !
3 originals only (A1, A5 and B1) but B1 - 'Just Think About It for a While' is worth the price of the LP in itself.
The rest is covers of the Beatles (A4 & A6), Bob Russel (A2), Gordon Lightfoot (A3), Joni Mitchell (B2), Jose Feliciano (B3), Michael Merchant (B4), Willie Hutchison (B5) and Bob Dylan (B6).
All in all a very great album !

I think this LP has been released on the 27th of July 1976 seeing the catalog number (and not in 1978).
