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).
