(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!
