Download The Big Parade - Michael Yonkers - Grimwood

Though recorded inGrimwood wasn't issued untiland then only as a private pressing. Like other Yonkers albums to emerge in scarce quantities in the mid-'70s, it's a far folkier and more subdued affair than the late-'60s psychedelic one for which he's most known, Microminiature Love.

If perhaps not as impressive or consistent as the somewhat similar material he recorded in the early '70s for the LP Goodby SunballGrimwood is likewise an interesting entry into what has been dubbed by some collectors as the "loner folk" genre.

Yonkers singing is melancholic, but not quite downbeat; the tunes have sparse but imaginative, rather oddball arrangements. A forlorn yet fairly warm tone hovers over most of these low-key ruminations, and while Yonkers ' measured voice and acoustic guitar are constants, the settings are graced by touches that can only be described as willfully eccentric.

That's just side one of the original LP; side two lays on some more off-the-wall toppings, like the gentle wah-wah of "Tripping Through the Rose Gardens" that seems to be mimicking Native American chants, and the howling wind somewhere in the background of "The Big Parade.

For those looking for obscure acid-folk-tinged music of the period with a slight "outsider" vibe, however, this is a standout. AllMusic relies heavily on JavaScript. Please enable JavaScript in your browser to use the site fully.
