Pat Kilroy - Light of Day (Elektra,1966)



Buceando entre discos duros sigues rememorando obras singulares y de las que nunca has escrito nada. La de Pat Kilroy en su debut en nombre propio (antes de fallecer al año siguiente) es uno de esos extraños artefactos de rareza de tradición rural folk, blues y psicodelia típica de la etapa. Muchos coleccionistas reivindicaron este trabajo como uno de los estándares iniciales del folk ácido y muchas veces comparado con Tim Buckley (aunque la voz de Kilroy es menos portentosa), "Light of Day" sobrevive en el tiempo como una joya delicada e inmarchitable. Nunca es tarde para llegar a ella (o recordarla).

The album, Light of Day, released in October 1966, contained material all composed by Pat Kilroy using a wide range of instrumentation including jaw harp and congas, as well as improvised vocals. According to Kilroy's sleeve notes, the album drew on Middle Eastern and Indian influences, as well as his experiences of living on the coast at Big Sur. Although the album was not commercially successful, it has subsequently been suggested as an influence on similar music recorded later by The Incredible String Band (who Kilroy and Graubard had met whilst staying with their producer Joe Boyd in London), Sandy Bull and Tim Buckley.
