Satya Sai Maitreya Kalie - Inca And Apache
I just discovered this fairly recently and I think it's a beautiful, beautiful record. It's kind of like Bobby Jameson in a way. 'I'm Walking Solo', for example, reminds me of Jameson, it's just so beautiful. There's a book on him called Craig Smith - his real name - called 'See Through The Darkness' which I'd recommend. He's just such a special artist. In fact, maybe the records in this list all do have a quality in common; they all have an ability to reach in to me. They really got me at a time when music was really saving my life.
