Added on September 4, 2006 by canonical

This is a private compilation put together for a community radio station (CKUA) in Edmonton, Alberta circa 1972 in a run of 1,000. The compilation was produced by then musical enthusiast Holgar Peterson. Holgar went on to form Stonyplain Records and become a local celebrity, his label still quite active. I was a little skeptical when I had heard about the record, as I thought it would be a simple showcase of local blues. Thankfully I was greatly mistaken.

The record is split in half, with one side being "acoustic" and the other "electric". Both sides feature a different artist on every track, making it quite eclectic. The only two known artists to me were Humphrey and the Dumptrucks (delivering their usual fair on the acoustic side) and Robert Edwards (who was one third of Troyka) doing an interesting traditional East-Euro folk song with electric guitar and flute.

The electric side was a little two eclectic for my tastes, but did feature about two or three really nice soft-psych tracks. The real heat is on the acoustic side, with about 4 out of 6 songs delivering awesome folk music. Two in particular have seriously blown me away.

The album was recently re-released on Stonyplain Records, so you can pick yourself up a copy. For this reason, I will only post the two songs that have really blown me away, but do note that it is a worthy album of picking up if you find it.
