Having played the London and Cornwall folk scene with the likes of John Martyn and Roy Harper, Michael released this, his first album ‘Rainmaker’. This was a seminal album with some fine guest appearances. . It has some beautiful lyrics with some real mood vocals from Michael. There is some brilliant acoustic folk guitar from Michael with some rhythms that you just need to play again and again. This is psychedelic folk at its very best. Can’t recommend it highly enough – a must. And if you want a stonker of a song to kick off an LP, then go no further than ‘It didn’t work out’. What a blast and if there was ever a song that left you wanting more, this is it. Take a peek at the review.
