Early this morning, for some inexplicable reason, I suddenly hear (in the way musicians 'hear' music even in total silence) a melody not repeated since my youth..
"..out of my many moods has grown....wanderingman..... catch me if you can.."
..accompanied by an absolutely haunting melody. Wondering if anyone else in the world has mentioned this band or recording, I query the mighty Google, and behold, blogger Cousin Mike has posted the album online.
This is one of the first records I actually remember listening to - to this day I can recall some of the melodies, chords, and harmonies, and the vinyl disc's distinctive green label with a prominent "Capitol Records" logo.
This is exceptional music.
