MARC LEVINE - PILGRIM'S PROGRESS 1968

Mark Levine was, like many singer-songwriters of the late 1960s, a Dylanesque purveyor of trippy poetic lyrics and unschooled vocals. This 1968 album--a rarity reissued in 2007 by the Dynamic label--captures his gritty charms as well as the skillful backing band that includes the legendary session guitarist Mike Deasy and a young soon-to-be guitar icon Ry Cooder.

A very obscure and nearly impossible to find piece of American acid folk-rock recorded in 1968 by Mark LeVine, an underground Dylanesque singer-songwriter, here backed by top-notch musicians like Ry Cooder and Mike Deasy. A complex and enjoyable piece of music.
