***The first legit reissue of this rare, stellar LP by DC-based singer/songwriter BOB BROWN. RICHIE HAVENS took Bob under his wing, produced two albums—The Wall I Bulit Myself (1970) and Willoughby's Lament (1971)—and released them on his Stormy Forest label distributed by MGM. Although they failed to make a commercial impact at the time, cosmic-folk enthusiasts and vinyl-heads have long placed these albums in high esteem alongside the works of exploratory greats like Tim Hardin and Tim Buckley. Bob is still with us. He recently performed with Ryley Walker's band at Tompkins Square's 10th Anniversary show at Rough Trade, and he'll make special appearances to celebrate the reissues.
