First Official Vinyl Reissue: Lacquers Cut By Kevin Gray At Cohearent Audio & Pressed At RTI
Expanded 180g 2LP Deluxe Edition Features 5 Previously Unreleased Alternate Takes, 2 Tracks Making Their Vinyl Debut & New Liner Notes By Jason Woodbury
Recorded in 1965 at the height of the folk revival, Terry Callier's Prestige debut album, The New Folk Sound of Terry Callier marked him as an important new voice. His approach to traditional material was comparable to that of Paul Robeson or Josh White, but evidence of his originality can be heard on every song here. Callier's guitar work was quite adventurous by folk standards, incorporating chord voicings one might expect to hear in a modern jazz context. He was also a powerful vocalist with a flair for drama that could evoke Odetta at her best. This new Deluxe Edition 180g 2LP-set from Craft Recordings includes five previously unreleased alternate takes ("900 Miles," "Promenade In Green," "It's About Time," "Be My Woman," "Oh Dear, What Can The Matter Be") along with two tracks making their vinyl debut ("Jack O'Diamonds," "Golden Apples of the Sun"), as well as new liner notes by Jason Woodbury which help narrate this lost gem.
