Celebrations For A Grey Day

Very smart vinyl with a nice crisp cover and original inner sleeve.

Richard Farina says in the sleeve notes that they were searching for the fulcrum under the ying-yang seesaw. Well, they found it. This music is exactly at the tipping point between the old weird America and everything Bob Dylan inspired in the sixties. The record deserves to be forgotten - just so that everyone can have the joy of rediscovering it again for themselves, because the music is intensely personal and quietly magnificent in what he describes as "an ink-stained, old pomegranate-seedy bag". It's lovely.
