Robert Armes-Songs For Icarus 1972 PRIVATE PRESS
Catch the wind! This is a nice little folk rock album from middle-Ontario Canada, circa 1972.
Robert Armes, by what I can gather on the web became a successful jingle writer, media - topical songwriter these days, but with this Private press LP , his first recorded output, he and his merry band
of folk freaks do a very nice Neil Young Harvest-era sounding homage on wax.
All songs are original compositions and very accomplished.
Since posting this in 2007 on youtube, I had many comments (the youtube account was frozen by
youtube) including direct contact with some of the members. Some of the original members
informed me that the album was basically painstakingly recorded in a Live type of setting
down at the local Pub and a House. I forget the order, I think it was indicated that they worked
out the album at the Pub and then later retreated to the House to record to 2 track.
A very minimalist recording, and it shows with beauty and room space and of course the
way the artists fill the air with very nice tonality of colour, passion and it's surprising these folks
were so young.
This was released in ultra limited numbers on the private label
"STONY CREEK" and according to the catalog number, it seems there were other releases
on the label. Anyone know what that release could be?
I posted the entire album on youtube for your listening pleasure.
Like all files here, it's available in high bit rate transfer audio file on my KDX server.
I am planning to repost this (soon) I will be offering this as a limited edition CD
with full artwork. This is simply by request, as I have already handmade a dozen
or so reproductions of this album for people all over the world and word of
Nope I don't make
profit, I only charge for materials and shipping and a small donation if one
is so inclined.
HERE IS THE FIRST OF 5 PARTS OF THE ENTIRE LP POSTED ON YOUTUBE
