Bill Stone “Purple” – Listen

This is the lowest of the low lo-fi recording, and an unmined nugget to boot.  Bill Stone started out playing in a few small folk ensembles and stepping out with occasional solo gigs, which led to the 1969 recording of Stone on a 2-track Panasonic tape recorder of an album’s worth of material in a pottery studio in Boothbay, Maine.  Who else but Drag City would be responsible for bringing this long lost – and even unkown –  little gem out into the daylight?  The album is called ‘Stone‘, and here’s psych-folk, fresh from the source.

Sure, I could climb high in a tree, or go to Skye on my holiday. I could be happy. All I really want is the excitement of first hearing The Byrds, the amazement of decades of Dylan's music, or the thrill of seeing a band like The Long Ryders live. That's not much to ask, is it?
