Gerry O'Kane - ST (1976 Irish Folk SSW from Canada on Boot)


This record represents Gerry O'Kane's efforts - as a writer and singer - to break away from an Irish pub group he had been leading for some time - Rakish Paddy.
The songs are in the contemporary folk vein, based on his own experiences, including those of an immigrant to Canada, and his impressions of his new home.
The album is not an unqualified success, but it does indicate that O'Kane has style, vocal and instrumental talent, and a promising talent as a songwriter.


Great SSW album in my opinion with a essential Irish feel.

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.


Lyrics book in a superb condition !
