TERRY - Rojvi
The folks behind this LP are same as those on the Jim Collins LP (which is long sold out) but I guess someone involved wasnt completely satisfied with the results so it was released under a different name. Its definitely got the same desolate downer folk/psych vibe with the ultra-mysterious presentation intact. Heres what I had listed for the Jim Collins a year or two back: "Easily one of THE best examples of "loner acid downer psychedelic folk" I have ever heard. References would likely include touches of Charlie Tweddle, Peter Grudzien, Skip Spence, Simon Finn, Bobb Trimble, etc. NYC psychedelic dealer Paul Major describes it as sounding like what a Jandek album might sound like if any of them were actually any good. Most importantly, unlike other "acid folk psych" records where youre left wondering where they might have hidden the "acid" and "psych" parts, this record is full of distorted and wah-wah electric guitar leads throughout both sides. The catch here is that nobody can tell me when, or exactly where, this is from. I know its US and I am fairly sure its not more than 5 or 6 years old, perhaps only 2 or 3 (but the fact that its on LP and not CD clouds the whole thing); the sleeve is a killer purple psychedelic kind of Halloween painting and the whole thing just has the home made obscure-O vibe to the max. Already offered overseas in near 3 figure range and definitely going to climb when copies disappear. Thus far, nothing but high marks from everyone whos heard it." - Stan Denski. Early 90s (?) mystery which, after being unearthed by Denski and Majors, changed hands for $35.00+ right out of the box. Not sure how many were pressed but i do know that it hasnt been offered anywhere other than dealer lists. Got a handful of copies at a non -collector price."
- Regular price $16.00
