***BACK IN PRINT!!! Long awaited follow up to the True Story of Abner Jay LP. ABNER JAY was a man who had a grand sweeping vision of what folk music was. In his lifetime his expression of what folk music could be encompassed some serious stylistic variations. Sometimes he was a one-man-band-traveling troubadour playing an electric banjo, harmonica, and drums who tried to hoodwink audiences into believing that he was 150 years old and the standard bearer for authentic Americana. Sometimes he played in electric straight up R&B bands such as KOKO JOE & THE JOBHUNTERS. Sometimes he claimed to be the "black Bob Dylan" strumming an acoustic guitar and singing socially conscious urban folk. On this LP we find Abner in all of these modes and more. (He also does a pop song about a submarine disaster and a beautiful gospel song). Culled from a mix of Abners' 45's and LPs spanning the period 1964-1973, including Abner's first long lost LP, which the cover image for this LP is taken from. Mississippi hopes that this release will help to further the current wave of understanding that Abner Jay is an important artist who deserves a wider audience than he ever received during his lifetime. Comes with a self promotional pamphlet penned by Abner and a color photo of Abner. Housed in an old school tip on sleeve.
