CARGILL, HENSON - A VERY WELL TRAVELLED MAN (CD)


"Stellar songs, heartfelt performances, the finest Nashville players and the greatest set of tonsils to ever wrap themselves around activist country-pop! Here are the almost forgotten masterpieces of Henson Cargill, sourced directly from the Monument Records vault and presented for the first time on CD. Hear Henson's smooth baritone lambast apathy ("None of My Business"), chide neglectful parenting ("Skip a Rope"), ponder the complexities of love ("Four Shades of Love"), dismiss the space race ("Going Backwards") and name-check Adolph Eichmann and Cecil B. DeMille in one song ("What's my Name?"). If "Wildflower" doesn't move you or "Reprints" make you stop and consider then you are surely made of stone. Zen country music anyone? Features the 1968 #1 hit "Skip a Rope", six country chart hits and 21 other pieces of lysergic, zen country pop! First time on CD! Deluxe collectors package featuring rare photos and exclusive liner notes. All tracks are in stereo and remastered 2005 from the original master tapes." (label info)
