“One of the year’s finest compilations…Paul Hillery, has delivered a labour of love that leaps from the turntable and provokes a potentially expensive Discogs browse” CLASH
“An endlessly rewarding compendium of outsiders.” Uncut
“This is a universe of sound you’ll be glad you washed up in.” Shindig!
“The seventeen tracks take the listener from the bucolic hedgerows of Albion to the winding dusty valleys of California and plenty from the spaces in between. They span the lost halcyon days of Laurel Canyon and beyond with all the light and dark of that high time. Then at the same time each piece joins the folk dots to the more rustic vibrations emanating from closer to rural England. The music is resistant, evocative of times of contemporary and historical change, often charged with revolutionary fervour, but also tinged with an organic connection to the land..” Test Pressing

RE:WARM Records is delighted to announce ‘Folk Funk & Trippy Troubadours Volume Two’ compiled by Paul Hillery, renowned record collector, archivist and dj. The record is set for release on the 6th October, available on double gatefold black vinyl, cd and digital (order here).
Paul Hillery is a relentless seeker of musical treasures that span generation and genre, uncovering some brilliantly psychedelic and ever so funky gems along the way. These nuggets were initially documented on the Folk Funk and Trippy Troubadours blog, then released on ‘Folk Funk & Trippy Troubadours Volume One‘ in 2021. Volume One received praise from all the right places, including BBC 6 Music’s Lauren Laverne making it her compilation of the week, Gilles Peterson giving the record plenty of airtime and rave reviews in Uncut, Shindig! and CLASH.
For ‘Folk Funk & Trippy Troubadours Volume Two‘, Paul dives back into the vaults for more seriously good, rare cuts for all to enjoy. Spanning seventeen tracks, the new compilation represents his continued journey with the Folk Funk & Trippy Troubadours sound. Think of heady sounds to soundtrack balmy English summers and Balearic poolside drops, the compilation includes a huge slab of privately pressed obscurities with some previously unreleased material. Standout tracks include the folk funk masterpiece ‘Morning Brings The Light’ by Grand Union, pressed to vinyl for the first time here. The previously unreleased groove of ‘Undone by Tasha Lee McCluney co-written with Joey Stec of Curt Boettcher’s California supergroup The Millennium. Another vinyl debut ‘Teardrops Lost In The Rain (Stallions Remix)’ by Findlay Brown, where the original folky Midnight Cowboy soundtrack vibe is elevated by a hypnotic space disco twist, all while still keeping the melodic root of the original version. Another outstanding cut is flute-driven jazz masterpiece ‘Weepin’ by Cascada featuring Jaime Roos, Ronald Langestraat and Ben van Bergen on percussion. And the anthemic ‘Let Me Ride’ by Australian singer/songwriter Peter Campbell will leave you yearning for more.

Grand Union ~ Morning Brings The Light
Grand Union came from Brentford, UK, where the Grand Union Canal meets the Thames. They were active from 2003 to 2017. Musically they were influenced by 1960s ‘folk baroque’ artists such as Pentangle and Davy Graham, as well as modal jazz musicians such as Pharoah Saunders and Alice Coltrane.
The seed of ‘Morning Brings The Light’ came from a bass line from Caspar Sewell. The overall groove took shape one afternoon with a 4/4 guitar played over a 6/8 bass line, a combination that suited the drummer Gerry Wood. Kate Vahl on vocals, Simon O’Grady on flute, guitar and backing vocals, with Leigh Rose on violin and guitar. The original lyrics listed the lost rivers of London but were changed to rebirth and liberation from a busy modern life as the new dawning brings the light.
The track was recorded at Twickenham Sound Studios in 2005 with Tom Addis and Adrian Bradley at the mixing desk. Its energy came from being recorded live, with Vahl’s vocals and the harmonies being overdubbed. Originally featuring on the album Through The Green Fuse released on People Tree Records, it is the first time this Folk Funk & Trippy Troubadour favourite has been pressed to vinyl.
Tasha Lee McCluney ~ Undone
‘Undone’ was written by Tasha Lee McCluney and Joey Stec, from The Dependables and Curt Boettcher’s California supergroup The Millennium. McCluney had sung backing vocals for Beth Orton on the critically acclaimed album Trailer Park and also with Heavenly band The Rockingbirds. She supported Primal Scream at Brixton Academy and worked at Heavenly recordings. She DJed frequently as ‘The Heavenly Birds’ and with Tim Tooher who put together the infamous early 1990s ‘Dan Penn and Spooner Oldham’ gig in Camden. McCluney also released the single ‘Stomped On And Wasted’ as Tasha Lee in 1998.
In 2001 Alan McGee (Creation, Poptones) flew McCluney over to LA to meet Joey Stec, the pair hit it off and started writing together. An album of 10 tracks were recorded six months later in a three-week studio session recorded at The Lodge, in Northampton (incidentally the home town of Folk Funk & Trippy Troubadours). It features McCluney on vocals with Todd Wills on guitar and Bill Denton on bass. It was produced by Joey Stec and Joe Foster and held together by Ed Ball.
The album, Pictures And Postcards, was planned to be released on McGee’s Poptones label but was unfortunately shelved, luckily the recordings were sold back to McCluney for a pound and ‘Undone’ features here in its first official outing.
Len Udow ~ Beauty Raise The Tree
Appellation Music, to find a home for his genre-bending music. With the help of many musical friends, the album, Through Curved Glass, was created and released in 1976. The songs were written on both piano and guitar and collected in the early 1970s. ‘Beauty Raise the Tree’ was initially a poem written by Len’s roommate Stephen Gislason during a tumultuous time of relationships gone awry. With hindsight, the song may have been an attempt to heal what was perceived to be broken. It was devised from D-modal tuning on an old Martin D18 to give the guitar a spatial sound. There was a conscious attempt to capture a sense of spontaneity off the studio floor by recording live, with no overdubs, at Captain Audio Studios, Toronto, Canada, between March 30 and May 11, 1976.
‘Beauty Raise the Tree’ features Len Udow on acoustic guitar and vocals, Patrick Godfrey on piano, Jack McFadden on double bass, Harvey Saltzman on bassoon, with Jim Morgan as engineer, and Eugene Martynec on acoustic guitar, and also made the whole project and its disparate parts come together.
Dan Donahue ~ Wild Canada
The song ‘Wild Canada’ was written in 1976 and recorded in a little studio in the basement of a music shop known as Guitarland, a mecca for the independent folk and rock scene of Winnipeg, Canada. Dan Donahue was very much a part of the vibrant Canadian Folk music community.
Donahue played all the instruments on ‘Wild Canada’ while Randy Joyce added percussion in the form of a distant woodpecker (somewhere deep in the northern forest). The track is taken from Donahue’s first album, Long Distance Runner, and was privately pressed on Dan’s own Freckles Music imprint in 1978. He followed with a second self-released album, Motion, in 1980, working with Canadian producer, engineer and music artist Daniel Lanois.
Michael Glick ~ The Ballad Of Ho Chi Minh
This song was recorded towards the end of 1976 at Grog Kill Studio, Willow, New York. The studio was located near Woodstock and the engineer was Mike Mantler (a great jazz musician and husband at the time to Carla Bley).
‘The Ballad Of Ho Chi Minh’ was inspired by Glick’s involvement in the Vietnam antiwar movement. After reading about his life, Glick wrote the song as a tribute to Ho Chi Minh and the Vietnamese people. It features a flute solo from Ricardo Strobert, Tony Mondesire and Carlos Gomez on assorted percussion, Kenyatte Abdur-Rahman on marimba, drums and bells, and Mike Mantler on bass. Most of the musicians were fellow students of Glick at the College at Old Westbury, Long Island. Some went on to play with pretty well-known musicians. The album, City Dreams, was privately pressed in 1977 on Glick’s own New Morning Records label and dedicated to the memory and ideals of Paul Robeson.
Chris Rawlings ~ Song of Creation
In 1968, Paul Lauzon and Chris Rawlings quit their respective bands. They had an idea to put The Rime of the Ancient Mariner to music and so to complete their task they spontaneously drove to New Orleans to visit Lauzon’s sister. However, she had joined the Externalized Ashrama of Kumi Maitreya and her spiritual followers and the two friends had to find somewhere else to stay. A jazz drummer, Tony ‘Oulaboula’ Bazley, directed them to a club, Andy’s on Bourbon, where they found shelter. Lauzon was loaned a copy of ‘The Book of the Hopi’ by his sister and he wrote a translation of the original lyric. Rawlings fashioned chords on the acoustic guitar and they developed the melody together.
‘The Song of Creation’ was recorded at Montreal’s Studio Six. With Chris Rawlings on vocal and guitar, Tony Bazley (KARMA!) on drums, Jim Hochanadel on the recorder, Gilles Losier on bass; Wayne Rose on slide dulcimer. It featured on the album, Pearl River Turnaround, privately pressed on Rawlings’ own label Cooking Fat Music in 1975.
Chris Rawlings is a Quebec-born singer-songwriter and folk musician.
Gary Lapow ~ Bamboo In The Wind
Lapow first began performing as part of the Washington Square folk music scene of the early 1960s. His first recording was on Folkways Records at the tender age of 16. During the Civil Rights era, Lapow toured with the SNCC Freedom Singers and recorded with the Red Star Singers in the 1970s.
Recorded in San Francisco ‘Bamboo In The Wind’ was written as a comforting gift to his father after the death of Gary’s mother. The song features Steve Erquiaga on acoustic and electric guitar, Rich Girard on bass, and Gary Lapow on vocals. It appears on Lapow’s debut album, Tell It From The Heart, which was released on his own Springhill Records label in 1982.
Based in the San Francisco Bay Area Gary Lapow has been writing and performing for more than 50 years.
Summer Rain ~ Turn On Your Lovelight
Summer Rain formed in Aylesbury, Buckinghamshire, UK in 1973. The five musicians were from the local area and had known each other since the early 1960s. Carol White on lead vocals, Alan White on lead guitar and vocals, John Parslow on bass, keys and backing vocals, Tony Procter on rhythm guitar, bass and backing vocals, with Pete Mayhew on percussion.
‘Turn on your Lovelight’ was recorded at Acorn Studios Stonesfield, Oxfordshire, UK in the Summer of 1975. It was one of the tracks from the band’s first studio album, First Summer Rain, which was privately pressed and released the same year. The album featured three original tracks written by Alan White, ‘Turn On Your Lovelight’ was written for Alan’s wife Jennie.
Jennie Rylatt ~ Rainfall
‘Rainfall’ was recorded at Great American Music Machine (GRAMM), a studio in Denver, Colorado, situated across the street from a strip club. Jennie Rylatt made the 2-hour round trip at night from college to record. She had previously performed on several commercials recorded at the studio and got a deal to record during the studio’s slow time.
The song was written by a fellow student, Jo Kadlecek (now a famous author) is about the love and forgiveness of Jesus. Rylatt asked if she could record the song and her friend excitedly said yes. They were just kids. It was 1979 but for Rylatt the memory is as fresh as if it happened yesterday. She sat in the dimly lit studio alone with her guitar and got the song down in one take!
It features on Rylatt’s ten-track privately pressed debut album, A Dream And A Little Magic.
Lucy Kitchen ~ Olivia
Lucy Kitchen is a singer-songwriter from Hampshire, UK. ‘Olivia’ was recorded in August 2021 in the middle of a heatwave in a single day with Luke Oldfield engineering using vintage mics and the beautiful live space at Tilehouse Studios, the unique vintage recording studio originally built for Mike Oldfield in 1981. Lead vocal and electric guitar were recorded as a live performance with backing vocals overdubbed.
The song was written like a letter to a friend whose relationship was falling apart but one they did not want to leave. With analogue warmth and haunting vocal tone, it is released here on Folk Funk & Trippy Troubadours Volume Two for the first time.
Henry Parker ~ Prospect Of Wealth
Henry Parker is a British folk musician from Keighley, West Yorkshire. His song ‘Prospect Of Wealth’ is taken from his very hard-to-find eco-conscious debut album, Silent Spring, which was privately pressed in a run of just 239 copies and released in 2019.
‘Prospect Of Wealth’ was written in early 2017 and recorded in a basement studio at the house of producer David Crickmore. The name is borrowed from one of Parker’s key musical influences, Steve Tilston, who had a track titled ‘Prospect Of Love’ on his 1971 debut album, An Acoustic Confusion. The song is written from the point of view of wealth or money, addressing those who seek more than they need. The song features Theo Travis of Soft Machine / Porcupine Tree on flute, they met when Parker supported Soft Machine at The Trades Club in Hebden Bridge. With Henry Parker on vocals and acoustic guitar, Augustin Bousfield on double bass, Brendan Bache on percussion, and David Crickmore on Fender Rhodes. It was produced and engineered by David Crickmore and mastered by Neil Ferguson.
A devoted guitarist since childhood, Parker’s musical path led him to rock and heavy metal until at the age of 20 he found himself captivated by the ethereal beauty of Bert Jansch and Nick Drake. Soon finger-picking and open tunings became the essence of his sound. As a result of drawing deep from the well of the sixties and seventies revival, Parker creates a new sound for modern folk with a clear link between the past and the present. Parker spent the past 5 years playing headline concerts and supporting many of his musical heroes, including Michael Chapman, Wizz Jones and Bridget St John.
Henry Parker’s 2nd album, Lammas Fair, was released at the end of 2021 to much praise across the music press.
Findlay Brown ~ Teardrops Lost In The Rain(Stallions Remix)
Findlay Brown is a singer-songwriter and producer born in 1976 in York, England. His debut album, Separated By the Sea, was released in 2007 on Peacefrog Records and was produced by former Simian member Simon Lord. MOJO said the album “Set’s the benchmark for gorgeous troubadour folk”. His second solo album, Love Will Find You, was released in 2010 on Verve Forecast and produced by ex-Suede guitarist Bernard Butler. ‘Teardrops Lost In The Rain’ originally appeared on this second solo album. Brown wanted to write a song that could fit on the Midnight Cowboy soundtrack (no coincidence that this is one of Folk Funk & Trippy Troubadours’ favourite films).
Brown was a fan of Andrew ‘Lovefingers’ Hogge, a DJ/producer and the man behind ESP Institute. So when Brown’s manager told him there was a chance of Lovefingers remixing one of his songs, he was eager for it to happen. Andrew Hogge, working with Lee Douglas under the name ‘The Stallions’ was given ‘Teardrops Lost In The Rain’ to work their magic on. They ran with the soundtrack vibe taking it to another level adding their hypnotic space disco twist while still keeping the song’s melodic root.
‘Teardrops Lost In The Rain (Stallions Remix)’ made an appearance online, but inclusion here is the first official release and its debut on vinyl.
Harris & Crane Band ~ Change Is Me, Change Is You
The Harris and Crane Band was formed in early 1975 by Randy Harris and Dave Crane and consisted of Randy Harris on piano, Dave Crane on rhythm guitar, Al Simonsen on lead guitar, Woody Reppert on bass and Dennis Liszcz on drums. The band enjoyed regional success around Philadelphia, PA, USA.

It was to be their only release, The Harris and Crane Band disbanded in early 1977 due to creative differences. music.
Frank Pyne and Loon Saloon ~ Waco
Frank Pyne was born in Portlaoise, County Laois, Ireland. After leaving there in 1979 he moved to the U.S.A. and then Holland. Arriving in Heidelberg in 1981 on his way to somewhere he never left.
He began writing songs at the tender age of 12. Along with a school friend, they would compose instrumental pieces played on two acoustic guitars in church between meditative breaks in Mass, making the most of the atmospheric acoustics.
Pyne released his solo album, Sombrero Fallout, on the German label Casino Records in 1988. It was recorded at the Galgenberg Studios, Schwabbach, Germany.
In the late 1980s, the picturesque German town of Heidelberg was home to a burgeoning live music scene centred around a handful of live venues. One was ‘Gringos’, a Tex-Mex restaurant and music venue owned by Pyne. It was a favourite hangout for American soldiers, many of whom were musicians. It also played home to a host of exceptional local and international talent from all genres of music. Musicians would meet up, share songs and form bands. One formed was Loon Saloon, a momentary collaboration with Pyne and his nephews.
Loon Saloon went on to release two CDs on Pyne’s own label, The Campfire. Cosmic Campfire was released in 1996, and Field Trip, with a version of ‘Waco’ included, was released a year later in 1997.
Although not religious, Pyne was intrigued by cults whose charismatic leaders were followed unquestioningly. He wrote ‘Waco’ after watching the disastrous intervention by government forces who laid siege at a Branch Davidian compound in the Texas town. The song is written from the point of view of the cult leader David Koresh. It uses few words, repetition, and some menacing riffs. The version recorded with Loon Saloon features an unusual combination of instruments and includes a chilling middle section contributed by David Moufang (Move-D). It features Frank Pyne on guitar and vocals, Alan Pyne on keyboards and vocals, Morgan Pyne on pedal steel guitar, Geoff Brown on bass, Kiaus Pelzer on percussion, with David Moufang FX on chorus. It was recorded in 1995 by Rio Mario in the children’s bedroom of the Pyne family apartment situated above Gringos.
In 2005 Frank Pyne released a 50-track retrospective of songs titled, The Song Is King. He continues to write and perform music.
The B.B. Jackson Band ~ Theme IV “A Detective”
The B.B. Jackson Band were active in the 1970s and early 1980s in the Tri-State Area of New Jersey, Pennsylvania and Delaware. They performed a unique mixture of satirical and improvisational blues, rock and jazz, setting themselves apart from the mainstream acts that dominated that period. The band consisted of Mike Burke on keyboard and organ, Jack Jeckot on guitar and synth, Christine Jeckot on percussion, Tom Boris on drums, with Frank Barbera on bass.
BBJ recorded one album, Midnight Writer, released on a short-run private pressing on their own Moon Pub label. Theme IV “A Detective” was recorded in January of 1978 in a small loft studio. Written by Jack Jeckot, it was one of the band’s many instrumentals and started life as an impromptu jam in the studio late one night after a long day of recording. The song title came from an audience member who noted the track sounded like the music from a 1960s detective show.
Cascada ~ Weepin’
One of the few ballads from the Latin band Cascada, ‘Weepin’ was recorded in the Spring of 1980 during an overnight session at Big Jo’s Studio in the North of Amsterdam with production by Alonso Cárdenas and Glenn Heyer. Cascada was a percussive band made up of musicians from various nations, from Uruguay to Morocco, the Antilles and The Netherlands. This track saw Ben van Bergen on conga, bongo, percussion, and vocals, Jaime Roos on bass, vocals, bombo, and Legüero, M. ‘Ayko’ Ahkrif on bongo, conga, and percussion, Alvaro Pasquet on guitar, Jose P. Carrasco on flute, vocals, percussion, and charango, Ronald Langestraat on keyboards, vocals, and soprano saxophone.
The track is taken from the band’s self-titled debut album released as a private pressing on their own Chambacú label. Unfortunately, it was to be their only release, the band disbanded after the departure of two of its members. It was a shame, Cascada was just reaching some prominence on the festival circuit and looked to be headed for success.
A few band members continued within the industry. Jaime Roos still continues his acclaim in the Latin music industry. Ronald Langestraat enjoys a lengthy career as a musician, releasing albums on the Amsterdam-based South of North label including; Searching (2018), Apollo (2019), and Light Years Away (2022).
Peter Campbell ~ Let Me Ride
Australian singer/songwriter Peter Campbell has been in the music business for over 50 years. His track ‘Let Me Ride’ came about in 1974 at the end of a fraught three months hurtling through Europe with a couple of guitars and the thrilling, if unsettling, sensation of being completely untethered for the first time. He wrote the song on his last night alone in Paris.
Recorded in Brisbane, Australia later that same year the track features Campbell on 12-string guitar, Gary Crees on electric guitar, Des Du Ploy on drums, Roger Hanlon on bass, with Peter, Gary, Lawrie Huxley and Doug Campbell providing harmonies. It was released on Campbell’s debut album, Of Time And Its Distance, in 1975 on the Australian label Trinity.
