Felt - s/t 1971

Felt was formed in Alabama in the late 60's around the talents of Mike Jackson (no relation) guitars, Mike Neel-drums, Stn Lee-guitars (again, no relation), Tommy Gilstrap-bass, and Allen Dalrymple-keyboards. The bands self titled album released on the small Nasco label in 1971, contains half a dozen original songs, written for the most part by Jackson. The mostly blues-style songs on this album are full of great guitar work, and contain fine Beatles-esque harmony vocals. While most of this album has a blues feel to it, some of the songs hint at progressive rock with swirling keyboards, intense drumming, and blistering guitar solo's. The album has recently been discovered for it's musical excellence and has turned into a very rare collectors item. Guitarist Lee would go on later to play in punk rock band The Dickies in the late 70's. This welcome re-release by Akarma Records, features a reproduction of the original fold out album graphics in the mini-L.P. styled Akarmapack.
