Drag City set to release Tony Caro & John rarities compilation

Drag City is set to release the rarities and outtakes compilation album Blue Clouds from 70’s psych-folk artists Tony Caro & John. With contemporaries like The Incredible String Band, Bert Jansch, and Left-Handed Marriage, this collection represents a time capsule of sorts regarding the kind of naive, sincere folk that was still being made in the first few years of that decade, before the collective musical consciousness fell away towards more harder edged rock bands. Their only official album, 1972’s All On The First Day, was originally released by the band themselves in a very limited pressing of 99 copies (to avoid being taxed on that 100th copy) but was recently re-issued by Gaarden Records as a vinyl-only release in 2010. Watch out for more information on this release as we get closer to its November 6th release date.
