We love the trend of small reissue labels digging into this era, and hope to hear more from Finders Keepers' "library of obscure, obtuse, obsolete and obsessive vintage music from the 60's and 70's." In the race for psych-folk obscuro-porn: Christie's album was originally pressed in a run of only three vanity copies - top that, Numero.
You can buy Christie's record here.
A forgotten folkie and former denizen of Donovan's creative colony on Scotland's Isle of Skye (is there a docu on this??), Vashti Bunyan is having an unlikely second go thanks to the freak-folk community. The Boston Herald does a good job telling her story, inspiring iff to finally pick up one of her records next time they're record shopping.
"For Your Consideration", Christopher Guest's follow-up to folk music send-up "A Mighty Wind", is given an early, thumbs-up review by Hollywood Reporter.
iff is checking out Chad VanGaalen's live show tonight, so stay tuned for pics + full report.
