Life's Full of Surprises,
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: The New Folk Sound Of Terry Callier (Audio CD)
I came to this album in rather a strange way. As a lifelong fan of psychedelia I had often wondered who the Collier was on HP Lovecraft 2, credited with writing Spin,Spin,Spin and It's About Time. Imagine my surprise when I bought this and discovered that the credit should have read Callier and that his original versions are on this album. He does a solid cover of I'm a Drifter which also found it's way into the HP Lovecraft setlist so I suspect that since they were both Chicago based artists it came via him rather than the composer. This is such a strong debut that even the inclusion of his versions of done to death Cotton Eyed Joe and just plain naff Oh Dear(what can the matter be) can only remove one star from an otherwise perfect score.
