Eric Andersen - The Crying Place album
Album · 1991 · 12 Songs. For years, the legend grew about this album without anyone hearing a note. It was recorded in late 1972 and early 1973 and was intended as the follow-up to Eric Andersen’s artistically and commercially successful Blue River album. But somehow the record label misplaced the master tapes, and Andersen went about working for a new label on 1975’s Be True to You, which featured several songs from this lineup. In 1990, the tapes were found, and Stages-The Lost Album was released in April 1991
Eric Andersen is nothing if not a consummate writer, performer, and interpreter of classic folk melodies and subjects, and he delivers on his considerable promise. Eric Andersen delivers beautiful lyrics wrapped in smooth as silk slow flowing music that takes you into the soul of the singer/songwriter tradition of the late 60s, early 70s. If you count Bob Dylan, Niel Young, Jackson Brown, Don McLean, Jimmy Speeris, Joni Mitchell, Carol King, Tracey Chapman in your collection then you need to listen to this album.
