Rockwood (Dharma  DAR-1004)  1974


Randy Matthews produced this duo’s custom project featuring Randy York on lead vocals and acoustic guitar and Brad Nelson on electric, bottleneck, and acoustic guitars. Add some additional folks on piano, bass, drums and the end result is good unrefined acoustic/electric rural rock with a slight Southern bent. Here’s an odd one: a honky-tonk rocker called ‘Wallace’ recounting the George Wallace assassination attempt. A twinge of Allman Brothers Southern rock in ‘Taste And See’. Other titles include ‘This World Has Got To Change’, ‘Tabitha’, ‘Stop Him!?’ and ‘They That Wait Upon The Lord’. Some parts remind me of Ron Moore, others of Dave Mattson’s Lead Me Home. York also has a couple fine solo lps (see entries).    (The Archivist, 4th edition by Ken Scott).
