The Lyman Family with Lisa Kindred - American Avatar (1969) MP3/Flac
"This is  an atmospheric, urban afterhours scene complete with Miss Kindred's husky, bluesy vocals and a weary, introspective last-cigarette type mood. Side 1 is great, with top-notch playing from heavyweights that include Bruce Langhorne and Geoff Muldaur, a two-fisted punch of the swampy "James Alley Blues" and a flowing "Good Shepherd" being as good as anything within the contemporary folk-blues style. Side 2 drives the same mood even further down into empty bourbon glasses and desolate NYC back alleys, but doesn't really add anything to the already established vision. Even without the Lyman angle this album has gained a reputation among admirers of femme-vocal folk/blues, and rightly so. In view of the early recording date it has an impressively modern feel, and its unrelenting darkness may appeal to fans of Laura Nyro and Nico. "
