Originally recorded in 1971, the Polydor recording of 'Mary Catherine Lunsford' has recently been re-packaged as a CD.
The vinyl recording has been seen for sale on Ebay and other rare record sites for extraordinary sums.
I began my performing career in 1965 at the age of 17 in a small club called The Paradox in Tustin, CA. where muscians would gather to sign-up on a list to perform 3 songs or for 15 minutes in the Thursday night Hootenanny. This led to playing what might be referred to as a circuit of 'Hoot' nights in coffee houses such as The Golden Bear in Huntington Beach, The 5 Muses in San Clemente, Doug Weston’s Troubadour on Sunset Blvd in Hollywood and The Whole in Glendale + others.
Known as the 'California Folkies' we honed our skills during a rich and inspired decade of music. I had the privilege of knowing, learning from and/or performing with Jackson Brown, Mary McCaslin, Penny Nichols, Steve Noonan, The Nitty Gritty Dirt Band, Hoyt Axton, Linda Ronstadt, Tim Buckley, Steve Gillette, Pat Paulsen, Jose Feliciano, The Sunshine Company, Steve Martin, John Denver, Brewer and Shipley, just to list a few.
I wrote and perform the eleven songs on the album. 'Mary Catherine Lunsford' was released in 1971 during the same week as Carol King's 'Tapestry' album. My claim to fame that week was a billboard on Sunset Blvd in Hollywood, CA. Alas, as youth is apt to be rather an egotistic time in ones life, I thought that billboard would be only the first of many and never took a photo!
You can take a listen to MP3 versions of a few tunes from this album on http://www.myspace.com/marycatherinelunsford, but the CD is only available for purchase through my Etsy shop.
