I Know Where I’m Going (Sardis 5-5339) 1964
Acquiring the complete Ed Kilboume album collection might well prove to be a formidable challenge. So far I’ve counted ten, from primitive solo-with-guitar offerings like The Good News and I Know Where I’m Going all the way up through 1982’s A Place To Watch The Rain. The older ones are almost exclusively simple renditions of popular tunes fronted by Ed’s easy-going vocals, a bit meek and breathy at ﬁrst but very much improved by the time of the early Airbom releases, a custom label he co-founded with artist Ron Moore. The ones listed above are the best of the lot. By this time he was including three to four of his own songs while also adding some basic Georgia country folk-rock instrumentation to his simple acoustic style for a fuller sound Along the journey you’ll encounter a few unexpected ditties like ‘Rubber Ducky’ and ‘At Seventeen’, as well as material by Kenny Loggins, Gordon Lightfoot, John Prine, Jerry Jeff Walker, John Denver, Jim Croce, Tom Paxton and John Hartford.
In case you wanted to go for the whole Ed Kilbourne enchilada, here they are. I once saw an Ed Kilbourne record offered – anyone know anything about that one?
Addition information can be found on Ed’s Web site and his store has his albums. (The Archivist, 4th Edition by Ken Scott).
I have not acquired this album yet. Thank you Ken for the Front cover photo and Discogs for the rear cover, label photos and track list.
