Sunforest

LP (Item 71151) Blue Thumb, 1973 — Condition: Sealed

Later work by Tom Rapp – recorded after his early years with Pearls Before Swine, when Rapp was working on his own as a singer/songwriter, and really expanding his own unique musical vision. The album's got surprisingly full backings – very different than the rough folksy touches of earlier records, with instrumentation that includes flute, cello, violin, banjo, harp, and the usual small group guitar, bass, and drums. Overall, the album's got a warmer more developed sound than Rapp's earlier work – almost optimistic, or if not that, at least confident and capable in the choice of subject matter. Titles include "Forbidden City", "Comin Back", "Prayers Of Action", "Sunforest", "Someplace To Belong", "Blind River", and "Love/Sex".  © 1996-2019, Dusty Groove, Inc.

Sealed

This is what it says, that the record is still held fast in shrink-wrap. We tend to be pretty suspicious about these things, so if the shrink-wrap doesn't look original, or if the record seems to have undergone some damage over time, we'll probably take it out of the wrapper to ensure that it's in good shape — which is why we don't have more of these. In some cases the shrink-wrap may be torn in spots, but if it's not possible the record has been taken out and played, the record will still qualify as "Sealed".

Additional Marks & Notes

If something is noteworthy, we try to note it in the comments — especially if it is an oddity that is the only wrong thing about the record. This might include, but isn't limited to, warped records, tracks that skip, cover damage or wear as noted above, or strictly cosmetic flaws.

Tom Rapp

Star Dancer
Blue Thumb, 1972. Sealed
Beautiful music from singer Tom Rapp – probably best known as the lead voice behind Pearls Before Swine, but a hell of a solo act on his own! The work here follows in the same moody, melancholic territory as the best ESP sides from Pearls Before Swine – but there's also a bit tighter ... LP, Vinyl record album

Dave Mason

Alone Together
Blue Thumb, 1970. Very Good+ Gatefold
Dave Mason's first solo album – and a pretty a great one! Alone Together wasn't a huge hit back in the day, but man is a ever a pleasing set. It's rich with blues & soul steeped lead vocals and sweet backing harmonies and bed of acoustic guitars at the core of most of the tunes – ... LP, Vinyl record album
Blue Thumb, 1972. Near Mint- 2LP Gatefold
Strange compilation focusing on a bunch of San Francisco rock and funk groups produced by Abe "Voco" Kesh.

Mark-Almond II
Blue Thumb, 1972. Sealed
A great second set from guitarist Jon Mark and reedman Johnny Almond – both musicians who'd recorded great music in the 60s on their own, and also worked famously with John Mayall – but hit a really special vibe here of their own! Titles include "The Sausalito Bay Suite", ... LP, Vinyl record album

Love

Out Here
Blue Thumb, Early 70s. Very Good+ 2LP Gatefold
A strange album when put next to Love's Elektra records – and one that's not without its weaknesses – but the band's got a kick-ass drummer, and the record's filled with more than a few tasty moments that have a bit of funk in them. Layered with Arthur Lee's hip guitar, the sound is ... LP, Vinyl record album

Ceremony
A&M, 1969. Very Good-
An amazing collaboration between rock group Spooky Tooth and French composer Pierre Henry – a great meeting of the minds that comes out sounding pretty darn groovy!

Young Americans
RCA, 1975. Very Good-
A brilliant soul album! That's right, we said SOUL album! Bowie was at the height of his Ziggy Stardust fame when this one was recorded – a drastic left-turn in styles, forged during a point in his American tour when he could take a break, head to Philly, plug in at the Sigma Sound Studios, ...
