This LP featured artists who associated with the Cellar, three
floors down, in the YWCA building in Sydney. This was then the
venue for PACT which in 1972 still operated as an adult
co-operative theatre and music space. PACT has changed somewhat
over the years and is now the "PACT centre for emerging artists"
now situate at Erskineville in Sydney.
It is a really mixed offering with psychedelic folk, bluegrass, an
Irish traditional, a Spanish language protest song of the 1960s
(shades of "Quantanamera"), a blues number, and a few country/folk
Many of these artists have featured for other albums on this blog,
most notably, Marian Henderson, Declan Affley, and John Currie. All
tracks are studio performances.
This is another of the albums ripped by the Victorian Bush Folkie
and edited by me. There were a lot of clicks on this LP but most
have been eliminated and it is now of good listening quality.
