    Long Lost Tapes 1970

    Import


    While remaining largely unknown to the general public, Peter Walker was something of a legend along the Boston-New York folk axis of the 1960s, releasing a few celebrated albums for Vanguard during this period. Playing with various folk luminaries like Fred Neil, Joan Baez, Tim Hardin and Karen Dalton, and studying Spanish flamenco and Indian classical guitar with none other than Ravi Shankar, Walker was both a true student of his instrument and a pioneer, using not only acoustic guitar, but, as can be heard on this album, also electric. Recorded in 1970 at Levon Helm's (The Band) house in Woodstock, with the likes of legendary Detroit drummer Maruga Booker and tabla god Badal Roy, this is an essential release for fans.

    Side A:


    1. Meditation Blues
    2. Camel Ride
    3. City Pulse


    Side B:


    1. Missing You
    2. 102nd Psalm
    3. Mellowtime

    It Can Be Done!

    It Can Be Done! is an album of new beginnings. The past year has seen Kendl Winter leave the successful bluegrass group The Blackberry Bushes to tour the country as a solo act, walking her banjo into dark bars, smoky music halls and packed amphitheaters night after night. It's also full of intimacy. With a voice that is marvelously unique and bold, and songs that are both classically poetic and rooted deep in her own experience, Kendl draws upon an old-time Americana and bluegrass bent that brings to mind the haunting vocal work of Karen Dalton and Gillian Welch. Her banjo work on the album is striking, showcasing a kind of expertise that comes from years of companionship with a beloved instrument. It Can Be Done! is a victory album of sorts, and Kendl's third release on K, the follow up to her beautiful 2012 landmark The Mechanics of Hovering Flight.


    Recorded by Calvin Johnson on reel-to-reel tape at Dub Narcotic Studio in Olympia, WA, on It Can Be Done! Kendl is backed by The Summer Gold, Austin Cooper (drums), Joe Capoccia (guitar) and Derek Johnson (cello). Together they explored her year of new horizons. In sweet spinning songs like "Centrifugal Forces," Kendl makes even the awkward, arduous task of foreign laundry seem a steady triumph: "I'm out walking, Tulsa wind, stumbling in place again. Who knew it would be so hard to do your laundry in Berlin?" The following lead tracks "Rosie" and "Dreaming of Babylon," both convey the spirit Kendl has been working from this past year, the very idea that she can choose to live her life outside of cultural expectations and guidelines, even if when its difficult, even if when terrifying. That It is, in fact, possible to manifest the life of your dreams. It can be done!
