Kathy & Joe Allison “The Old Stone Singers” 1971 ultra rare Private US female & male Acid Folk. 12-string guitar, flute

Somewhat similar is the Old Stone Singers, a k a Kathy & Joe Allison, who self-released their From The Hearth album in 1971 on DB Records #121271. Despite having sold for substantial money on occasion, I hear nothing to set this apart from dozens of other local Peter Paul & Mary combos who kept the folk-boom aesthetics way past its due date. There’s a nice dual acoustic guitar interplay throughout and not too shabby vocal harmonies. “Early Morning Rain” highlights side 1, while side 2 has a version of “Get Together” and a charming original (?) titled “Close Your Eyes”. There is none of the dark, gothic late-night moods that psych guys might fall for and could have warranted an Acid Archives inclusion. Hardcore folk genre fans might dig this for the reasonably adept (male lead) vocal and instrumental performances, somewhat like Colours from TX, but that band had electric instruments and much hipper record collections….Acid Archives……..
