Item Description

Since this is maybe the only, or one of very few sets of acetates made for unissued double LP, you won t find a rarer loner folk style item.
17 tracks with acoustic, some electric guitars he overdubbed and played all himself, same with the vocals, multi-tracked and of course he wrote all the songs.
It has a lost in time atmosphere, is mellow and dreamy but very homemade.
If it were actually ever issued back then as on vinyl it would be one fans of lonely folk guys would pay well for.
In fact the opening track is titled I Was Lonely and another track is titled I Walk Along The Streets Tonight Alone ...
this is not a dark alienated loner sound, more a lost in time isolated mix of sad and happy songs, but never too cheerful or corny.
Other song titles include Thunderous Pound , Can I Sleep With You? , Did You Ever Have One Of Those Days , Bad Days , There s a Girl In My Heart ...
it has a very lost in time sound, a bit murky and very homemade but quite appealing.
It plays without any tics or pops but there is light ambient background noise under the songs, nothing that distracted me from enjoying it.
I think it is special, not in an in-your-face way or jaw-drop intense way, the songs are growers and the overall mood is laid back and lonely.
IF YOU ARE INTERESTED drop a message and we can arrange a time to play it over the phone.
All 17 songs are cool.
The sleeve obviously was homemade by him, it has wear, seam split, and you see two old photos of him taped to the back, one of them is a picture of a 60s band he was in The Gang managed by the legendary A2 Productions.
The acetates were cut in Flint Michigan on the date 8-5-75.
A warm and unique vibe, very intimate and obscure.
