Something Borrowed Something New ( Mike Hay ) - ST (197? US Dreamy Xian Folk LP)


Mike Hay is the cornerstone of this album. (The same Mike Hay who released the excellent 'Mike Makes Hay With His Magic Sun-g-shine' LP - I still have that LP for sale - see February 2015 on this blog)
He's the solo singer and makes all arrangements besides writing some of the songs.

Mega rare and very obscure privately pressed dreamy Xian Folk LP.

ROB PEARSALL & FRIENDS - Abiding in Him (Great 1977 US Private Xian Folk LP)


Rob Pearsall and his fellow Californians deliver a pleasant simply-arranged friendly homemade blend of light, medium and heavy sounds, all more or less within that general category of west-coast melodic rural piano-and-guitar folkrock.
Maybe a bit like Parable in that respect.
The group’s quieter side focuses on piano ballads and solo acoustic songs, while diversions like the country rocking ‘Free In Jesus’ proudly plug in the guitar for a more aggressive edge.
Attractive cover illustration of woodland brook setting seems befitting of the mood.
