The celebrated folk singer Bob Brown only released two LPs during his short career in the 1970s. The Wall I Built Myself (1970) and Willoughby’s Lament (1971) have become increasingly rare LPs to find in used record shops, but pretty soon eager fans won’t have to dig through dusty crates anymore to procure a copy. Tompkins Square Records plans to reissue both albums on 5/13, and Brown will perform at New York’s Joe’s Pub on 6/29 in celebration. Listen to “It Takes The World To Make A Feather Fall” off of The Wall I Built Myself below, and read a Washington City Paper feature on the songwriter here.
Reissues of The Wall I Built Myself and Willoughby’s Lament will be out 5/13 via Tompkins Square Records.
