dave schramm - folk und die folgen


Limited edition German-only solo release from the leader of the criminally unknown Schramms of New York City, a great songwriter and guitar player, sweet and sad, plain and simple. Also included are two songs from Radio Free Song Club, a monthly webcast of exclusive tracks from old favorites like Peter Blegvad, Peter Holsapple and Freedy Johnston as well as Schramm, who's also lead guitarist in the RFSC All Stars house band. Finally, Fade Fade, an epic outtake from The Schramms' One Hundred Questions CD, produced by J.D. Foster of Richard Buckner's best long players, from the band's website.

A little skronk for the jukebox at the local pub, here are two of six 45s released by F*P between 1972 and '75. Bah, bah, bleep, squeeeeeeeeeeeeee $(*#()){F!F!CR>$F!!! The Globe Unity is interesting because it actually is a take on the classic single, with a jovial, catchy plug side and a moody flip, treating Jenkins' lush Good Bye with great love and respect, incendiary Brötzmann and all.

Howard Tate's monaural Verve 45s from CD, non-hits from Turntable and Atlantic, a one-off Epic 45 from 1974, independent singles from 1976 and 1986, plus album selects. His voice is one in a million, with great songs and production by Jerry Ragavoy and Lloyd Price. I've taken the liberty of moving the songs I don't particularly care for to the end of the line, for your (my) listening pleasure. Don't miss the beautiful Either Side Of The Same Town (Jerry Ragovoy/Elvis Costello) from Tate's comeback CD, following decades lost in a perilous wilderness.
