Arthur Lee Harper - Dreams And Images ( Dreamy US psych 1968)

Singer/songwriter Arthur Lee Harper billed himself simply as Arthur (no last name) on his first album, 1968's Dreams and Images, and then as Arthur Lee Harper on his second and last, 1969's Love Is the Revolution. It's the same guy who did both records, and he most assuredly has no connection with the famous Arthur Lee who led the group Love.
Arthur, or Arthur Lee Harper, was as mild-mannered a folk-rock singer/songwriter as there was in the late '60s, singing sad songs that emanated fearful uncertainty, as well as slight airs of self-pity and disengagement.

A masterpiece of introspective and delicate loner folk-based music.

Arthur and I were pen pals circa 1964-79. Met once in Hollywood. Would love to find him again. Great guy.
