Terry Callier – The New Folk Sound of Terry Callier

Terry Callier
The New Folk Sound of Terry Callier
Style: Folk
Label: Craft Recordings, Prestige
Catalog Number: CR00097
Released: 1965, 60's
Stream:

The New Folk Sound Of Terry Callier released in 1966 on Prestige is exactly what its title suggests – a fresh take on American folk from the then-newcomer Callier. Drawing inspiration from jazz, blues, and soul, Callier re-interprets traditional folk standards bringing a uniquely African American perspective to classics like “Cotton Eyed Joe” and “900 Miles.” The music is hauntingly beautiful, with Callier’s warm crooning supported sparsely with bass from Attenborough and Tweedle. The original 1966 release is a mono record collector holy grail, but for everyone else, we recommend this 2018 Craft Recordings pressing that sounds great and features 5 bonus tracks.
