Music I Liked And Didn't - 12/22/06 - 12/23/06
V/A: Folk Is Not A Four Letter Word 2 CD (Delay 68) - Just to set the record straight at the outset, the title of this collection is a bit of a misnomer in that much of the material it contains (just like the first volume in this series) is not folk in the strictest sense, but rather psych-influenced pop. That being stated, it is not a problem, as this set contains another solid dose of late-60’s/early-70’s obscurities from around the globe. Highlights include: “Paint A Lady” by Susan Christie, "Son Of God" by Parchment, “Waters Of Babylon” by 11.59, and "Grey Today" by Woody Simmons. This, like all collections of this kind, wimps out excessively on a few tracks and it also certainly isn’t quite as strong as the first volume in this series, but, overall, this is still worth the attention of anybody who, like me, is interested in rare groove psych-pop and folk.
