Product description

Product Description

How rare can a rare record be? - medium rare? Uncooked? How about unreleased?! Susan Christie was a Philly based sophomore folk singer who had one novelty hit for a major label and never quite recovered. Afterwards, her psychedelic take on country standards and hand crafted tales of inner-city solitude, backed by a break heavy folk-funk rhythm section was never accepted as a commercial viability by record company bigwigs.

They obviously couldn't quite muster their nostradamus sensibilities to foresee what future hip-hop producers and DJ's would be feeding into digital music-machines 30 years down the line! Luckily three-fifths of a handful (literally three!) privately pressed vanity copies were manufactured in early 1970 one of which became the source material for Finders Keepers 7th LP in their expanding library of obscure, obtuse, obsolete and obsessive vintage music from the 60's and 70's.

Uber-legend John Hill who penned the acid-rock floor-filler 'LOVE, LOVE, LOVE, LOVE, LOVE', for Wool and Pacific Gas And Electric. produced the LP which features 9 tracks including a Johnny Cash cover and a 12 minute 'drugsploitation' epic called 'Yesterday - Where's My Mind' featuring Susan flipping vocal styles between Janis Joplin and Margo Guryan (...who was in fact a close friend of Susan's at the time of recording).

PREVIOUSLY UNRELEASED on any format taken from the original reels and acetates! Deluxe vinyl and CD with exclusive pics and extensive liner notes written by folk-funk archivist Keith D'Arcy

Finders Keepers continues to go from strength to strength and are now at the forefront releasing unlikely cult classics such as JEAN CLAUDE VANNIER'S "L'ENFANT ASSASSIN DES MOCHES" (FKR001), "WELSH RARE BEAT" (FKR003) - compiled with GRUFF RHYS (SFA), and STANLEY MYERS "SITTING TARGET" (FKR005).
