One of coolest live documents of folk music adventuror Sandy Bull you could ask for – recorded at the Berkeley Community Theater in 1976 – with Bull playing the oud, on stage with early version of the TASCAM 4-track recorder, utilized here as his backing "band"! He dubs his tape machine The Rhythm Ace – with Bull playing the oud to pre-taped drum machine and bass, and talking to the audience about just what heck they're seeing and hearing. We don't know of the audience was in awe, dumbstruck or what – folk fellows didn't do this kind of thing on stage in '76 – which makes it all the more rewarding to hear 35+ years later! Sandy's musicianship is brilliant, and it's great fun to listen to him talk about his pal The Rhythm Ace, too. Includes "Oud", "Love Is Forever", "Driftin", "Alligator Wrestler" (with an intro) and "New York City" – plus a demo of his Rhythm Ace.  © 1996-2014, Dusty Groove, Inc.

Move With Love
Country Flavor/Numero, 1976. New Copy (reissue)
An unusual bit of female folk from mid 70s California – not really country, but far from the sound of the LA scene too – a distinction that's probably made even stronger by the small studio recording of the record in San Jose! Kathy Heideman sings straight at some times, but has these ... LP, Vinyl record album
