Rodney (Dorian DRN 505) 1975? UK *

 

 

 

 

 

British singer-songwriter guy doing folk, rock and light blues stuff. He plays guitar, bass, mandolin and autoharp. Includes some cheap organ and rather queer synthesizer backing. Cool wah-wah rhythm guitar on ‘Last Generation’, ‘A Brand New Song’ and ‘There Is A Place’. The 5-minute closer ‘Samaritan’ has a nice basement Neil Young feel with some garage-angled rudimentary electric guitar. Not a bad album, sort of like a more homemade-sounding Garth Hewitt, with even a few cheesy psych undercurrents. Back cover says he lives in Northern Ireland, though the label is out of Scotland. (Ken Scott – The Archivist).
