        2010-01-01       Mpallos / Dionisis Savvopoulos

i discovered Dionisis Savvopoulos's music in Athen Greece. then i looked for any great Greek psychedelic music, so i asked the guy at one record store in Athen... he recommended me Savvopoulos's records. i asked to him ti listen to some parts of these records... wow!! it was great!! so i bought all of his albums that i could find... of course i couldn't read any Greek, so then i didn't know his name and any titles of the albums and songs...
i didn't know anything about him... so i believed he was really underground folk singer... but he came to Japan to sing at Aichi Expo!!! unbelievable!! it means he was so famous!! i couldn't see his show then (because iwas reaaly Anti Aichi Expo!!)...
his music is really unique, something is like really troubadour...!!!



        2009-02-22       Colorado Folk / V.A.

when i went to Denver first time in my life, i found one section "Colorado Folk" at one record store... at that time, i was looking for good American folk music records, so it interested me so much!! of course i bought all records from this section!! i found some really good records then... but when i went back to Denver again, there was any more records in the Colorado Folk section... so i'm always looking for Colorado Folk records from that moment... in last year, i bought this Colorado Folk compilation!!
this compilation is by 4 musicians (units), Dan Mc Crimmon, Mary & Katy, Grubstake and Jim Ranson... it was released in 1973... unfortunately i didn't know any musicians on this records when i bought it... of course i can guess there are so many folk singers in Colorado!
this records is amazing great for me! all tracks became my favorite folk music what i was looking for so long time!!! especially i really love Dan Mc Crimmon's tracks!! i found he released one album "Here To There" as duo Frummox with Steve Fromholz in 1969... also he is still playing with Steve Fromholz now!! wow!! i really want to see their show!!
Mary & Katy are Mary Moffatt and Katy Flower... their music is one of the best female singer's folk music for me!!! so mellow and dreamy... i didn't know Katy Moffatt and Mary Flower both released many albums!! it looks they are quit famous!? probably they are still playing now too!?
Grubstake are Jack Stanesco, Harry Tuft and Steve Abbott. i love their chorus, something remain me European polyphonies... it's so beautiful and deep... they are also playing still now!! yeah!!
and i love Jim Ransom's tracks too!! what the ephemeral and beautiful music is!!! but his early his albums "Just Come Along for the Ride" (1974), "The Escape of J. D. Mackenzie and other Songs" (1976) and "Ransom Notes" (1977), unfortunately the master recording of these albums have disappeared... what!? i have to find these LPs on next US tour!!
i'd love to play folk music and country western music like ephemeral, dreamy and beautiful folk music... in one day, even i'm not American musician...
