Blue Anchor - Plenty Love & Bacon (Rare 1979 UK Folk LP on Workhorse Records)

 

 

I recently discovered that amazing UK Folk band through the Various Artists release "Some Cleveland & Dales Folk Volume 1" issued in 1976 on Pied Piper Records (with 7 great songs played by Blue Anchor).

For instance :

 I loved so much Blue Anchor's music that I bought their 1979 LP titled "Plenty Love & Bacon" issued on Workhorse records.

Another great discovery for me !

Allen Marshall - Acoustic Thunder (Rare 1986 US Private Folk gem)

 

 

Allen Marshall - 'Acoustic Thunder' : Certainly it's a lot more interesting than the cover and his image suggest. A mix of beautiful, complex guitar instrumentals and songs. The songs really take it to the next level. He does a kind of talk/singing that falls somewhere between Lou Reed and Neil Young to my ears. There's a delightful, almost punk primitivism to his songs and delivery that make the record feel genuinely subversive and special and it all feels like the work of someone with a very unique creative vision. (reviewed by Christian Petersen)

Listen to these tracks :
