ERIK BRITTON - "The Troll" (1980 US outsider folk psych)

Erik Britton's sound can only be described as "demented troubador," just his intense voice and a frantic 12-string guitar.

An excellent track 'The Silent Carousel' can be heard here :
http://wfmu.org/playlists/shows/38140

"If a man does not keep pace with his companions, perhaps it is because he hears a different drummer. Let him step to the music which he hears, however measured or far away."
(... Henry David Thoreau)
I have always heard a different drummer. I have always travelled my own road. And now I find the drummer is myself. The music that I hear is at last my own. Can you hear it ?
(notes from the back cover)

This is a little gem in my opinion.

WAYNE SANMANN - "On the Other Side of the Mountain" (1979 US Xian Outsider-DIY LP)

Way obscure Private Press LP by this local Oklahoma artist, which looks like typical rural Xian-Country album from the cover ... until you crack it open and experience the Outsider-DIY genius of "Faith: The Better Way," one of the best undiscovered Xian Folk-Rock-Psych tracks I've heard ... the song opens with the thumping beat ripped straight off Nancy Sinatra's "These Boots Are Made For Walking" then some spidery late 1960's Psych harpsichord/organ comes creeping in along with Sanmann's high-pitched, unearthly Mountain Guru vocals ... Totally irresistible, completely out of this world and flat-out amazing.
Sanmann must have been a big fan of Lee Hazlewood because there are several other excellent cuts on here with a similar laidback, trippy "Some Velvet Morning" groove.
A really unique record that grows and grows on you ...
Who was this guy??

TOM PARKER - "Let All The Earth Sing His Praise" (Great 1969 US Xian Folk)

The strange cover illustration of peace signs, a priest, a flower child, an elephant, onion domes, a pagoda, a happy sun, etc. would seem to imply a fairly hip album lurking within. And indeed there is - guitarist and songwriter Tom Parker excels in the minor-key Catholic small-folk-band sound. Assisting Tom are Jim Rosch and John Nuttall who handle the vocals. Stripped down basic vibe, sometimes electric along the lines of label-mate Jack Miffleton. Nice tempo mix, the fast Latin feel of 'All You Nations' juxtaposed with brilliant mysterious ballads like 'Charlotte's Song'.
('The Archivist' - 4th Edition by Ken Scott)

One of my top 5 fave Xian LPs !

CAPTAIN MARRYAT - "Captain Marryat" (2009 Shadoks Reissue)

Still sealed exemplary (Shadoks reissue) of this monster heavy prog rarity !

Captain Marryat are from Glasgow, Scotland and recorded this demo album in 1974, released in a tiny pressing on the Thor label, hopefully to get an EMI or Chrysalis deal.
They wanted to record only a single but came up with a complete album of self-composed tracks.

Since it was not that easy for a Scottish band to get attention down in London, this album was the only pressing ever done and sold at band gigs only.
5 musicians, great organ, vocals, extra heavy fuzz-guitar, drums and bass, amazing underground songs, influenced by Deep Purple, Uriah Heep and Beggars Opera, a true lost classic.
