Bob Sharp - Times I've Tasted (Excellent 1984 Australian Private Folk LP)





 
'Times I've Tasted', a rare album released by Australian-based singer-songwriter/folk singer Bob Sharp, privately pressed on the rare and collectable 'EMI Custom' label in 1984.
From the scant information that I have found, Bob seems to have been based in Alice Springs in the Northern Territory of Australia: he was a regular at Alice Springs folk club in the 70's and 80's and was in the folk group known as Facial Expressions (who released a fine album in 1983) whilst the album itself was recorded at Centre Trax Studios in Alice Springs between March and May 1984.
Musically, the sound on the album can be described as lo-fi contemporary folk in the British folk vein, exemplified in his thick accent, the songwriting, and the vocal harmonies employed on certain tracks.
This pleasantly melodic album is definitely a hidden little Australian gem that remains virtually unknown to many folk collectors, but, undoubtedly deserves wider recognition - a great discovery.

Erik Britton - The Troll (Amazing 1980 US Private Outsider Psych Folk LP)


Erik Britton's sound can only be described as "demented troubador," just his intense voice and a frantic 12-string guitar.


"If a man does not keep pace with his companions, perhaps it is because he hears a different drummer. Let him step to the music which he hears, however measured or far away."
(... Henry David Thoreau)
I have always heard a different drummer. I have always travelled my own road. And now I find the drummer is myself. The music that I hear is at last my own. Can you hear it ?
(notes from the back cover)


Very great one-side long song (15'20") on the A side : "The Troll"
