Earth Opera - Earth Opera (2001) Retail CD
Peter Rowan and David Grismans first band,"Earth Opera" - featuring Billy Mundi on drums! I was lucky enough to purchase this album in 1968, and it has remained a favourite even since. It is an amazing combination of poetic folk songs with quavering, almost eastern, vocals. The lightweight sounds of mandolin, vibes, mandocello, and harpsichord add varying layers of texture to the more innocent and introverted songs ("As it is Before","Close your Eyes and Shut the Door" and the heartbreaking "To Care at All"). The same instruments can also be menacing and full of unease, as on "Death by Fire", "more…The Child Bride" and the superb "Home of the Brave". The single "The Red Sox are winning" is as relevent today as it was when it was written in 1967.(If you are in the UK - just substitute your favourite football team!)I would NOT describe this as an early country rock album - despite the path followed by Peter Rowan in later years - rather is it a psychedelic folk album.This is a classic late 60's masterpiece - and should be in your collection.
