Joint Effort

Album: Two Sided Country Blues (US 1971)
CD / Cat. No. WIS-1004

This obscure acoustic garage acid folk masterpiece for the first time reissued on CD was originally recorded in 1971 (200 copies have been pressed). Joint Effort are from Detroit but don´t deny the mystic and loner hippie Westcoast feeling. They recorded all songs at home, most of the tracks were first takes and reflect a kind of freaky “The Beatles“ meeting “Nirvana” (Unplugged) jam session.

They play tripped out raga-folk tunes with homemade effects, catchy vocals – very intense songwriting and “Bob Dylan” like protest against society. The songs stand perfectly for the summer, peace and love feeling! Favourites are, Stay High, Things Look Changed, Longest Tongue in the East, Citified Woman….This CD includes 2 unreleased bonus tracks, 4 original remixed tunes and linernotes. 70 mins of atmospheric acoustic space music!
