Home-recorded in 1971-72, these are some of the "country" songs he was doing at the time, as well as a few songs he wrote for children (like 'Mrs. Jennings Fruit Fly Farm', recorded live, where you can hear the kids going nuts). The tracks were recorded on a variety of tube-type, reel-to-reel tape machines, making for a unique analogue sound that begs comparisons to outsiders like Peter Grudzien, Holy Modal Rounders & The Legendary Stardust Cowboy, as well as beloved outlaws like Townes Van Zandt and Kris Kristofferson (ok, even one St. Johnny Cash, too).

Also available: GRIMWOOD/GOODBY SUNBALL/MICHAEL LEE YONKERS (3LP) (LP).

CANAVARRO, NUNO - PLUX QUBA

BACK IN PRINT on the LP-format, this is a reissue of an interesting 1988 work by the highly regarded Portuguese composer. The music is simple, gentle, melodic and yet completely alien. There are some similarities to Robert Ashley's later work, but even that is deceiving.
