The Lesl & Mike duo from college. Mike put our music from the local folk venues onto tape, before that sort of thing was routinely being done. Mike: arranger, vocals, lead guitar, electric bass. Lesl: composer, vocals, second guitar, fingerpicking.
It was a home-grown affair. Mike took the music we played in the college coffeehouses and local folk venues, and with a lot of ingenuity, put it onto tape, mistakes and all.
This one was recorded at ODO studios in NYC by a soup-kitchen full of recording engineer students.
Inspired by the painting "Blind Orion Searching for the Rising Sun", 1658, by Nicolas Poussin [French Baroque Era Painter, 1594-1665]. See the painting, online at
the Metropolitan Museum of Art, NYC.
