The first of Chapter Music’s reissue series for New Haven, CT avant-folk legends Kath Bloom & Loren Connors, who recorded together between 1978 and 1984, releasing their incredibly haunting and beautiful folk records in microscopic editions with handmade sleeves.
Chapter compiles their first two studio albums, with rare and unreleased material. A wonderful double CD retrospective comprising of two ultra-rare albums from these long-lost American folk troubadours.
Bloom and Connors began playing together in the late ’70s in Cincinnati, a pairing which saw Bloom’s elegant and occasionally stark vocals combining with Connors’ fluid and almost avant-garde approach to the folk/blues guitar idiom. Both albums represented here have only ever been in print in tiny vinyl runs in the early ’80s (and fetch big $ on ebay).
