Terry Callier - The New Folk Sound Of Terry Callier


The 1968 debut album from celebrated Chicago-based guitarist TERRY CALLIER will be officially released for the first time--on vinyl September 21 when Los Angeles’ Craft Recordings reissues The New Folk Sound Of Terry Callier. The album - originally recorded on one afternoon in 1964 but not released until four years later when a copy of the almost-lost master was rediscovered - is unique in that it features just an acoustic guitar and two bass players. The New Folk Sound of Terry Callier (originally on Prestige Records) conveys the promise and power of Callier in his earliest days. It’s a document marking a particular moment, capturing a young man in his element, his voice and soul, jazz and folk-infused songs timeless.  This new version includes five previously unreleased alternate takes(“900 Miles,” “Promenade In Green,” “It’s About Time” and “Be My Woman”) along with two tracks making their vinyl debut (“Jack O’Diamonds” and “Golden Apples of the Sun”), as well as new liner notes by Jason Woodbury which help narrate this lost gem. “…the album stands today as a minor masterpiece.” -The Guardian
