Awhile back my friend Kyle asked me to make a digital rip of this 1982 private press LP as a favor to his uncle, who was a good friend of the musician, who has since passed away. A very homespun pastiche of traditional folk, country, and bluegrass sounds interspersed with readings of Brauer's own poems and stories. The songs have a warm and relaxed atmosphere with Brauer's guitar and vocals joined in places by a revolving group including fiddle, banjo, mandolin, string bass, and clarinet. I've found almost no information on the internet, except that he appears to have made at least 2 other very rare albums, Out in the Open (1972), and Blue Sky & Scraped Knuckles (1974). I'd love to hear those if anyone has them.
