This album by Tucker Zimmerman, the second, was released in two different countries, years and labels (in Germany on Autogramm, 1971, and in UK on Village Thing one year later). For those who know his first LP, "Ten songs" (Regal Zonophone, 1969), it might be difficult to recognize the author. On that album we have some very nice acoustic songs ("Roadrunner" and "Alpha centauri" above all) and others with rock arrangements. Here, instead, all the electrical gear and equipment have disappeared, this is a real folk album and I personally prefer it this way. TZ sings and plays his 12 string guitar and other instruments (with Philip Chapelle's help on track 5) - but I fundamentally think that these songs would render at their best where no other instruments are employed, first of all this kind of "vibrato children organ" (how can I otherwise define it?), which I find rather disturbing, especially tracks 1 and 6. Often the voice is brought to the verge of "falsetto", like on track 2, and many melodies shine thanks to their "not resolving" harmonical solutions, especially "Left hand of Moses". My favourite is "Canary island rain". I personally find it great that TZ had M° Goffredo Petrassi as a teacher for composition.
The vinyl is in quite good conditions, the scan is 320 bitrate MP3
