Grand Tetons

(Riverman Music)
US: 12 Apr 2011
UK: Import

Originally released in 1977, Grand Tetons is a lost treasure of private prexss psych-folk from Texas by one of the Lone Star State’s most talented duos. This beautifully packaged CD reissue from the Riverman label remasters the album’s original 11 tracks, giving it a clarity that far surpasses its initial limited run on vinyl, enhancing the introspective beauty of tracks like “Train of Life” and “Love of the Country”. This updated edition of Tetons doubles the track listing by adding six tracks from the duo’s sophomore LP, 1984’s Second Time Around along with a generous cache of previously unreleased demos culled from recently unearthed tapes, adding even more weight and depth to this rescued obscurity that any fan of early ‘70s acid folk would enjoy.
