vinyl reissue after 47 years - 10:41pm Jun 3rd, 2015
I bought this guitar new in 1968, with the intention to use it to make my first record, a folk album with my sister Mary. This was way before DIY became fashionable and feasible for anybody. We recorded very simply, live single takes. And the basic gatefold packaging we designed turned out exceptionally rich and striking. We must have done something right because, though we only pressed 500 copies, they are much sought after and prized still today, 47 years later.
Barcelona-based Mapache Records just reissued the album in a limited edition vinyl tipboard package that looks and feels like the original, with the added bonus of a lyric sheet and some unreleased photos from the session. You can find it HERE
