God Don’t Make Junk (MIA HIS 474) 1974
F B Worster is one of those hippie kind of female folk-singers you can picture sitting on a coffee-house barstool with her sticker—plastered guitar and hair dangling in her eyes. She’s the real thing, too, singing of relationships with deep feelings that run the spectrum from panged whispers to bluesy wailing to impassioned outpourings sung with the conviction of Buffy Sainte-Marie. Fourteen original songs with a simple kind of beauty backed only by her acoustic guitar (the exception being ‘Auturrm’s Child’ which adds tabla-like percussion). Titles like ‘Cemetery Song”, ‘A Jew They Call Jesus’, ‘Hello Cyndy’, ‘Song For You And That Guy’, ‘I Know How Hard You’ve Tried’, ‘A Guy Like You’. Comes in a primitive sepia Folkways-style paste-on cover showing her playing guitar in a field. A second cover variation exists with a different photo and the name Linda Worster. (The Archivist, 4th edition by Ken Scott).
I have not acquired this album yet. Thank you Mr. Daad for the track list. Thank you Donald for the Linda front cover and the rear cover photo.
