David Sinclair  "Take My Hand" 1973 Private Canada westcoast/folk rock 
full one side

Originally released in 1973, this is a reissue of a very rare West Coast influenced Canadian folk-psych LP. David Sinclair has had a very succesful career with the bands Sunshyne and Straight Lines and has played with Sarah McLachlan’s band for 10 years. The album was brilliantly recorded by legendary Canadian producer and artist Stan Cayer and has been fully remastered from the original tapes, It includes 7 never before heard bonus tracks incuding a rare interview from 1973………

Take My Hand is the ultimate Canadian Private Pressing LP from 1973, West Coast Folk-Rock-Psych sytlings with sudden tempo shifts from mellow dreamy acoustic with occasional female backing vocals to sudden bursts of electric guitar wailing. The album also has a couple of great downer tracks with sparse arrangements. Highlights include: “A Tale Of Raven” “To Know You” “Three Hour Ride” and “This Time Around”. Canadian Singer-singwriter style music with some psych direction, and a strong and very pleasant West Coast feel. Fans of David Wiffen and Vernon Wray would greatly enjoy.

Recently re-issued on Regenerator Records, fully remastered from the original tapes including 7 previously unreleased bonus tracks…….

 Growing up in Vancouver, David was first was exposed to the world of professional music at the age of twelve. As a teenager, he was part of many bands and played locally regularly, moving from one playing situation to another, refining his guitar skills and performance. At the expense of his academic courses at the University of British Columbia's School of Music (Canada), he would often spend hours in the music library listening to a wide variety of guitar music from delta blues, to Django and to classical. During that period he was also introduced to the recording studio namely, Vancouver Recording (with legendary Vancouver engineer/producer Robin Spurgin), one of the very few professional studios in town at the time, which he frequented for days at a time, observing sessions and doing everything and anything he could to gain studio experience. .............
