Bill Cooley and Alan Munson were two friends in Santa Barbara, California, living their early twenties writing folk-rock songs for their pleasure. That was 1972, and they decided to put these songs into studio, autoproduce the album and press a tiny quantity of 500 pieces hoping it could help getting a contract with a major company. This never happened, as you would have guessed, and sure this fact helped making their sole album, "In debt", a major collectable item in the folk-rock and psychedelic rock listeners and collectors. Today, original copies of this record fetch quite interesting sums when changing hands in record fairs or internet auctions.
Being a private pressing, you can easily imagine its not a big production, but no care. This album has the right feel and you wont need anything else to make it one of your recent faves. All tracks are original compositions, and the style is very personal. Its folk-rock, but many tracks are quite psychedelic too, in their own way. But dont look close for influences, they will not come to mind that easily.. Bill and Alan had their own psychedelic folk-rock style, and the raw, sometimes amateurish feel that these recordings have, give the album the final distinctive touch. Never reissued before in any format, now here we come with a splendid reissue, with the collaboration of the guys. Remastered sound taken from the mastertapes, and including an insert with linernotes and unseen pictures.
CD version comes with booklet and outer slimcase.
Alan Munson kept going the folk-rock way and released two solo albums during the 70s too, which we are also re-releasing along with "In debt".
