Russell Potter Private Press LPs Reissued

Friday, May 7th, 2021

Russell Potter’s private press LPs A Stone’s Throw (1979) and Neither Here Nor There (1981) will be reissued for the first time 6/25 and are now available for pre-order.

“Though these albums landed at a time when American Primitive guitar music’s 1960s & 1970s heyday was in the rear view mirror, they absolutely look ahead to the genre’s eventual 21st Century resurrection, anticipating both in form & content many of the same concerns you find in the great contemporary work of the last two decades by Jack Rose, Glenn Jones, Daniel Bachman, et al., and as such provide about as fine a stepping stone between these two eras as you’re likely to find.”
