Little Kenny Wilson and his Band of Renown - Flying Together and Other Short Subjects (Rare 1975 US Private Rural Folk Pop LP)

 

Really enjoying this seemingly under-appreciated album. It's ambitious and incredibly well produced for a private pressing, has a nice big sound that absolutely works.
This is primarily a solo effort, with Wilson aided and abetted by a cohort of musician friends.
The music tends to be somewhat soft basically, with varying elements of folk, rural and country present to one degree or another. The song writing is interesting as is the presentation. 

Listen to   The Whole LP - Flying Together and Other Short Subjects

Complete with the original inner sleeve in a very correct condition !


Record : VG++
Cover : VG++ (still in shrink - see pictures)
Inner sleeve : VG+
Price : 40,00 Euros (+ expedition costs by registered parcel calculated by the Belgian Post)

Guthrie Thomas - The Poisonous Beauty (Great 1979 US Singer-songwriter LP on Eagle Records)

 

Another great album released in 1979 by this talented and prolific singer-songwriter !

This album is a collection of acoustic songs. It's just Guthrie and a guitar and a set of well-crafted songs. There's some good fingerpicking on these tracks, but it's not the focus. He's got an earth baritone voice that is expressive and appealing and imbued with confidence and urgency.

Listen : A1. You Can't Buy No Love Songs  &  B2. If I Could Find the Words

A great LP from start to finish ! Like many other Guthrie Thomas' albums !
