From Cleveland, the singer and songwriter Buzzy Linhart was a veteran of the East Coast coffee house scene and formed the Seventh Sons in 1967. Between 1968 and 1974, he also released several interesting solo albums as well as forming Music. 

His first album Buzzy was recorded in England in October 1968. On the first side he is backed by the Welsh group Eyes of Blue and performs his own songs (Willie Jean, Step Into My Wildest Dreams) and a fast cover of Tim Hardin's Yellow Cab. The second side features Sing Joy, a long (18'45") raga with only Big Jim Sullivan on sitar and Keshav Sathe on tabla. A really interesting album, it deserves to be heard.

The only album ever cut by Buzzy Linhart -- and a really compelling mix of styles that should have hit bigger at the time! Buzzy had his roots in the New York folk scene of the 60s, but he's recording here in London with a very unusual sound -- fuzzy and rocking at some moments, droning and folksy at others -- and often with some heavily jamming instrumentation that's nearly as appealing as Buzzy's confidently-sung vocals. 

Backing is by the Welsh group Eyes Of Blue, with Raymond Williams on guitar and Phil Ryan on organ and mellotron -- but one especially great track on the album is an extended Indian-styled number, with Big Jim Sullivan on sitar and Keshav Sathe on tabla -- working in a stretched-out groove that runs for nearly 20 minutes in length! Titles include "Sing Joy", "End Song", "Step Into My Wildest Dreams", "Yellow Cab", and "Willie Jean". First time on CD and is sure to appeal to all fans of hippy singer songwriting.
