BOLOTIN, JAY - JAY BOLOTIN (LP)


"Described by Kris Kristofferson as "one of the three best songwriters in the country, Kentucky native Jay Bolotin's songs have been championed by the likes of Merle Haggard and Porter Wagoner, among many others. Yet Jay's eponymous debut had the halflife of a mayfly when it went into circulation in 1970 and today it remains as phantasmic as the prairie ghosts that have long populated his native Kentucky. However hasty or uncertain the release of the album may have been some 40 years ago, one thing is certain: in a darkened room in New York City at the end of a Kentucky childhood, a 20 year old Jay Bolotin cut a singularly enchanted album of unhurried, low key loner ballads with the confidence and honesty of a seasoned journeyman. Jay Bolotin is an unqualified singer songwriter gem that will appeal to fans of Leonard Cohen, Townes Van Zandt & Alex Chilton. Features Kenny Lyon on Bass & Mark Taber on Piano & Harpsichord- both veterans of the Providence, Rhode Island scene, The Fugs' Bobby Mason on percussion and David Mowry on guitar. CD packaged in a trifold digipak with previously unpublished photos." (label info) Deluxe 180 Gram vinyl featuring new liner notes and lyrics inserts.
