Farm s/t 1971

This album is an air-guitarists wet dream! Serious twin leads the likes of which are found in Judas Priest or Iron Maiden. This is also a VERY obscure and rare record. Pressed independently on a small label out of Illinois, which is also where this band comes from. Recorded in Southern Illinois, the entire album is comprised of only 5 songs. 2 on side A, and 3 on side B. It's got a bit of a southern rock influence ala early Allman Brothers/Lynyrd Skynyrd although the stand out is the guitar. It's been reissued on Akarma, some folks have had rough experiences with some of their re-issues, even suggesting certain releases to be "needle drops" and therefore lacking in sound quality. Others are just fine. Try to listen to it before you buy, (you'll get hooked!) to seif the quality is there. Otherwise, you can always hold out for an original. Just open your wallet nice and big, and don't hold your breath.
Definitely a must have for any hard blues rock collector.
