Salt Creek - 1

Sorry posts have been light, lately. So much going on in my personal sphere right now... kind of overwhelming, and a two week sojourn that is about to commence had me thinking I should probably put something up here before an entire month passes in absence! A good friend turned me onto this nocturnal melancholic folk-rocker during the summer and I had the pleasure to talk to one of the band members who recollected recording the whole thing in one shot from midnight to 6, natch! Salt Creek was a thrown together combo of Army brats in central Mass, and this LP is the extent of their recorded output. Also worth noting, is that it's a different band altogether than the other rural folkster who privately released "Just About Due" in '77 from upstate NY (??). There are a few duds here, but all told I really like this record... just such a sweet autumnal lovesick vibe (ambiance, baby!), w/ one or two left-field Christian songs thrown in elbow to elbow w/ the one 'good time' cut - "That Good Old Horny Feeling" (!!). Such it so often went on these 70s homemade releases... this one custom pressed by the United Sound label. Worth a listen for sure, and hopefully I will see YOU - sooner, than later!

The Salt Creek boys recline...
