Upon first glance, one could be forgiven for wondering which is the artist's name and which is the title of this album. Memphis' Larry "Gimmer" Nicholson still remains a great unknown today, despite having orbited the periphery of the city's music scene since the early '60s, playing with artists ranging from Furry Lewis to William Eggleston and influencing a young Chris Bell (Big Star). Fusing classical and folk music, the sound Gimmer created for 'Christopher Idylls' was evocative and unusual, its chiming guitars recalling the music of centuries past while also -when recorded in 1968- being quite desperately ahead of its time.
