Bob Lind - The Elusive Bob Lind
Again, a pretty disgusting cover. That wasn't my intention with this collection - I wasn't trying to pick the worst or most ironic sleeves I could. But I suppose a couple I did end up choosing after realising how disgusting they were. This one is horrible. Again, the record has such a magic about it... I think it's best to listen with your eyes shut. The album is really great folk. I first heard the song called 'Summer' on that Jarvis Cocker compilation The Trip. I heard it and thought there's no way the whole album is going to be as good, and it was.
