Moonstone - Moonstone (1973)


Moonstone - Moonstone (1973)

This band was from Alaska, and recorded this on a Canadian label back in 1973. The songs really are exquisite, with excellent acoustic guitar, good electric guitar leads in places, piano, percussion, some flute, and very nice male/female vocal harmonies. Privately released on the obscure Kotai label (KOT3003), the album features predominantly female vocals and crystal clear male-female harmony singing. Imagine the meeting of U.S. West Coast acoustic songwriting and esoteric U.K. folk from the early 70s. This is it! Intimate, compelling...magical! Musical accompaniment minimum. Only acoustic guitar features throughout, with piano and flute occasionally. There's the hint of a gentle electric guitar in there too, but its those intricate, ethereal vocal harmonies that draw the listener. Those who enjoy late night/early morning listening, Linda Perhacs, CSNY, Trader Horne, and 70s folk music in general.
