Plant and See

(Paradise of Bachelors)  This unjustly obscure 1969 LP was executed by the soulful voiced, social justice yearning, swamp rockin’, genre defying, singin’, songwritin’, psychedelicizin’ Native American musician Willie Lowery. A truly remarkable album this sounds, alternately, like the best southern rock band you can think of, lost Beatles tracks, the groundwork for the post-folk singer-songwriters of the early 70s, a surprisingly heavy Hanna-Barbera bubblegum band, and a bunch of other stuff that invokes everyone from Jimi Hendrix to Jackson Browne, from the Monkees to Miles. And the dude can S-I-N-G! Plant yourself down and HEAR!
