4 stars Linda Perhacs - Parralellograms (1970)

In the age of internet obscurities come to be rediscovered, like this sole record of Linda Perhacs from the beginning of the seventies. Here listed in the progressive folk section, I would discribe it as mellow songwriters folk with mild psychedelic influences on some tracks. More then an early seventies record I would call it a light sixties recording.

A clear authentic female voice, an acoustic guitar, songs in which the silence is a main instrument and some arrangements with rhythm and wind sections. It doesn't matter how loud you play this, it's still intimate and soothing. All songs sound interesting and original, but the performance is the thing that stands out. Somehow Linda Perhacs is really out there, full of soul and love.

The recording showcases a minimal approach and everything has a function. Even some vocal dubs are used with a distinctive effect in mind, not just to fill up the space. My vinyl-reptrint on Kapp sound allright, but I can imagine a better remaster being done.

Conclusion. If you like that late sixties soulful intimate folk sound this is a real flawless gem. For progressive folk look elsewhere, I'm actually a bit surprised this record can be found on progarchives. Well then, four stars. This will possibly become a personal favorite.
