Product Description

Product Description

* A welcome midprice CD release for this rare Vanguard album from 1967.

* Jonathan & Leigh were a male-female duo consisting of Jonathan Alden and Sandy Roepken. They recorded this single album, very much in the style of label-mates Ian & Sylvia and Richard and Mimi Farina.

* Backing musicians include Russ Savukus, who had appeared with the Farinas and Ian & Sylvia, plus bassist Richard Davis and guitarist Jay Berliner who would shortly appear on Van Morrison's "Astral Weeks".

What`s new with this Ace Records re-issue of 'Third And Main' is that I was fortunate enough to track down both John Alden (Jonathan) and Sandy Lee Bashaw (Leigh) and tell their story. Previously, very little was known about this cult folk duo. Unlike the American version (which has no notes), this UK reissue CD includes my 2200+ words sleevenote, plus graphics that include both rare pics and a 60s colour poster. The duo`s story offers a fascinating insight into the New York folk scene of 1967 as the music began to develop into folk rock and the early hippie movement. Though some of the duo`s songs are `of their time`, others, like "Tapestry", "Winding River" and "Summer Sorrow", are impossibly haunting and beautiful, matching the best offerings by such contemporaries as Ian & Sylvia and Richard & Mimi Farina.

5.0 out of 5 stars 1960's folk venue 30 Aug 2009
By Ramdass - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Audio CD
I have always enjoyed this album. I purchased the album because I like much of he music on Vanguard Records. I wondered for years who Jonathan and Leigh were. Found out they were John Alden and Sandy Roepken from Dayton, Ohio. The album was made in an old church building in New York City. They then broke up and went their separate ways. John Alden records under his name and Sandy (Leigh) married an interesting musician named Michael Bashaw. They too record and perform.

If you like 60's folk groups like Ian & Sylvia, you should like this album.

It is THAT GOOD!! The songs are Plesant Paths to stroll down for ANY Folk Music fan or thought you might like to give it a listen.You will be 'hooked' on the words,music and most original lyrics as these two voices play & blend with one another in the 'most delightful way'... :-))
