Leo Kottke LP OBLIVION #S-1 "12 String Blues Live At The Scholar Coffeehouse" Issued in 1969. Cover is VG+ (above average) with even very light shelf wear. No seam splits, creased corners, writing or stickers. The record is Excellent with trace wear. Very slight loss of gloss and shine. No writing or stickers. The majority of the album was recorded live at the Ten O'Clock Scholar, a Minneapolis coffee house. Three of the instrumentals were recorded in a studio. The LP record was a limited edition of 1000 copies, on the Minneapolis West Bank-based Oblivion Records (apparently this is their only album), and it has not been reprinted and/or re-issued on CD. Publishing for the songs was by Symposium Music, same as the publishing and record label for Kottke's third LP. Side OneNo.TitleLength1."If Momma Knew" (One of the first songs I wrote. The second actually, around 1962. At the time I considered evil the only virtue worth cultivating.)2:082."So Cold in China" (The title lyric and, consequently, the idea for the song were stolen from somebody who sang at the Ontario Place in Washington when John Hurt worked there.)4:063."Furry Jane" (There's not much to say about this one. Its origin was in a couple of nightmares, one of which nearly got me.)2:014."Circle 'Round the Sun" (The majority of the lyrics are traditional. Another early song.)3:035."Sweet Louise"3:176."The Prodigal Grave" (This was written in a fit of terror while trying to calm down. It originally contained many more verses which later served only to confuse, so they were discarded.)3:01Side TwoNo.TitleLength1."Easter and the Sargasso Sea" (Columbus got stuck in this sea of weeds. There was no wind. Johnny Quest often goes there on business. Consequently resurrection here is not only promising but necessary.)2:282."Sunrise"2:373."Living in the Country" (Pete Seeger) (Seeger's great contribution to the 12-string. Originally recorded as a guitar duet with Frank Hamilton. Later recorded at high speed with accompanying whistle.)1:214."Sail Away Ladies" (John Fahey) (This is John Fahey's arrangement done on Vol.4, Takoma, with Al Wilson and his Veena.)1:475."The Last Steam Engine Train" (John Fahey) (Fahey's contribution to steam engines. (Vol.3 Takoma) somewhat augmented and re-arranged.)1:386."Long Way Up the River"2:297."You Left Me Standing" (In A.) 8."Mary Mary" (I sometimes think people like to hear this song for the same reason they like to watch accidents.) Postage is $4.00 Media Mail or $24.50 Air Post anywhere
