Artist: DESPER, BOB
Title: New Sounds
Format: LP/7
Label: Discourage
Country: USA
Price: $26.00
"If you havent heard Bob Despers New Sounds yet, you may have heard something about it. Originally recorded in 1974, New Sounds is considered to be one of the Pacific Northwests best-kept secrets, a regional Holy Grail with copies fetching upwards of $1000. Until recently, not much was known about this mysterious blind folk-singer from Oregon. In 2007, Discourage Records located Bob Desper, alive and well, living in Albany, Oregon. After two years of culling materials, Discourage Records is proud and honored to officially reissue this once lost masterpiece. Evoking the melancholy mood of Nick Drake, the fluid improvisation of Van Morrisons Astral Weeks, and the intricate instrumentation of Jose Gonzales, New Sounds dark, meditative urgency immediately transcends the thirty-five years marking its original release. This official reissue of New Sounds includes Bob Despers 1972 debut 7", Dry Up Those Tears (including picture sleeve); an 11 x 17 insert with extensive liner notes and full color photos; and 1970s style tip-on sleeve." -Discourage
