A beautiful pastoral folk gem from New Zealand singer/songwriter Paul Bond from his 1985 album 'In Sight of the Mountain' released on the private Hastings-based Cityfolk label.
The record is a beautiful listen full of catchy songwriting, evocative lyrics, exquisite finger-picked guitars and tender vocals.
Sparse songs based around vocal and guitars with touches of keyboards, electric bass, percussion, mandolin and flute.
Overall, it is a type of album that perfectly encapsulates the landscapes of rural New Zealand through song - the country's lush countryside, inland mountains and rugged coasts.
If you are a fan of folk baroque guitar playing and English folk legends such as Bert Jansch and John Renbourn then you will love this album.
Ideal for chilling out or late-night listening.
