Ακόμα ένα Private-Pressing προέλευσης Μινεσότα που κυκλοφόρησε το 1973, με folk μουσικό περιεχόμενο. Στην πρώτη πλευρά έχουμε τον Loner Folk Psych καλλιτέχνη MIKE MONROE με τίτλο των δημιουργιών του «Castaway» και στην δεύτερη πλευρά το ντουέτο FRED AND ANN VAGLE, με τίτλο των κομματιών τους «Fred And Anna Vagle».
With its simple arrangements and minimal instrumentation, this split album with talented artists on both sides is sure to appeal to folk music fans. First up is singer-songwriter Mike Monroe, who serves up five tunes, four of them originals. His talent as an acoustic guitarist is clear, and on his cover of Paul Stookey’s “John Henry Bosworth,” he plays banjo as well. Monroe’s songwriting ability especially shines on the dreamy “Rus.” He’s joined by Phil Kitchen on 12-string guitar and background vocals, and Dave Riley on bass.

Side two features Fred and Anne Vagle. Ann sings and adds some nice touches on recorder, piano, and percussion, while Fred plays the guitar and adds occasional vocals. They also get help from Phil Kitchen and Dave Riley. Anne’s beautiful, clear voice is showcased on tracks like “Simple Gifts” and the minor key ballad “The Willow,” one of two songs penned by the Vagles. A Paul Stookey tune makes an appearance here too; this time it’s a version of his “Sebastian.” – David Overstreet.
