Spider John Koerner - Spider John lp (Nero's Neptune)


"This vinyl-ony album fills a crucial gap in the evolution of legendary folk artist Spider
John Koerner. Recorded in between 1965′s “Spider Blues” and 1969′s “Running,
Jumping, Standing Still” (with Willie Murphy, both released on Elektra), Koerner is captured
here live and unaccompanied at The Ash Grove in Los Angeles, bringing to light an exciting
and previously undocumented period in the career of Spider John. The excellent recording
captures Koerner at the absolute peak of his guitar-playing powers.  Rounding out this crucial
slab of wax are two songs recorded in 1966 in New York City, previously only available on
an elusive British single.  Accompanied by Al Kooper on guitar, Felix Pappalardi on bass,
and Roy Blumenfeld on drums, “Won’t You Give Me Some Love” and “Don’t Stop” (the latter
with Tony Glover on harp) represent Koerner’s first, brief excursion into rock and roll terrain. 
The results sound not entirely dissimilar to Dylan’s “Highway 61″ period material–not
surprising given Kooper’s presence.  This release is not only a fascinating addition to the
canon of one of this country’s national treasures, but is also one of his strongest overall efforts. 
Strictly limited vinyl edition of 500 copies." - NERO'S NEPTUNE
