[1967] John Martyn - Rolling Home

listen to the song:

The British singer and songwriter John Martyn, was at the top of his creativity in 1967, when he released his first album called "London Conversation". Bilbo had following to say on this: "His voice is similar to Davy Graham's, and the style John Martyn plays on his debut is the folk twined with blues that many British singers put out in the mid to late 1960's. All of the songs are wonderful, a surprising guitar leads and picks from start to finish."

[1968] Lollipop Shoppe - Underground Railroad

listen to the song:

Checking out the Lollipop Shoppe's first and only album "Just Colour" was first surprising and then a bit disappointing. The best track on this album is indeed "Underground Railroad". It's a very strong song, a bit dark and maybe even acherontic. A hint of oriental melodies combined with bassy Jefferson Airplane sound and garagy trashing drums and voices. It's just great!
