FENNER LELAND & O'BRIEN - "Peace In Our Time / Somewhere, Someday, Somehow"

2 albums on one CD: Fragile US late '60s loner hippy psych/folk/rock albums that have a strangely bewitching quality. Two rare albums that were originally only pressed in limited quantities.
Featuring acoustic instruments, great fuzz guitar work, percussion, keyboards and introverted countercultural lyrics.
A real period piece that will appeal to any US '60s collector.

They came from Hamilton/New York and they made two superb albums of psychedelic and lowkey downer folk.
The group members were Rich Fenner (gtr, drms, vcls), Jim Leland (lead gtr, piano) and Wick O'Brien (keyb'ds, organ, bs, vcls).
