Originally released in 1971 this forgotten gem is ripe for rediscovery. COUNTRY were originally a duo called Fondiler & Snow. Both Michael Fondiler and Tom Snow had already played with legends. Michael had been a member of the pre-SPIRIT bands The Red Roosters and Western Union whilst Tom had been an original member of Gram Parsons' band THE LIKE in 1965. With the addition of Michael's brother Steve, Bobby De Simone and Ian Espinoza they became COUNTRY and produced this marvellous album which holds similarities to the music of James Taylor, Jackson Browne and Bread. Impressed by the band, Peter Asher soon took over their leadership but despite recording another fine album their record label pulled the plug. Tom Snow stayed with Peter Asher for a solo career and later became a million selling songwriter for the likes of Linda Ronstadt, Little Feat, Bonnie Raitt, Cher... The list goes on and on.
This Remastered album includes all original tracks, plus five bonus tracks that have never previously been released. One of these gems, 'SYLVIE', features Lowell George on slide guitar. SPIRIT's and JO JO GUNNE's Mark and Matt Andes also offer guest performances. Tom Snow tells Country's story in the extensive liner notes and recalls his days with Gram Parsons.
