Homegas - Homegas (Folk Blues US 1970 Takoma Rec.)


HOMEGAS
Released on Takoma records in 1970 (C1026) and produced by John Fahey. This self titled release is the only output of this rural community based in Indiana.
Led by Peter Aceves, it's an excellent example of folk-blues with good vocals and strong instrumental parts. The songs are all original and some are really outstanding, notably Bumblebee, Bulldozer Blues and Maine. The liner notes mention that two other (unknown) groups used to play with Homegas: Greazy Green and Stoney Lonesome before their house was destroyed by fire. Fuzz, Acid & Flowers

Personnel:

PETER ACEVES vcls, gtr, rack harp

JIM BARDEN hand harp

RICHARD BLAUSTEIN fiddle

DAVE BROCK hand harp

JOHN HYSLOP bs

NEIL ROSENBERG mandolin, banjo

DAVE SATTERFIELD vcls

HOMEGAS has never been reissued on cd and this rip has quite a bit of surface noise that doesn't detract from the music at all. (at least for us here at GSU)
The playing is strong throughout and is rooted in pre-war acoustic blues and rural string bands while the vocals remind me of a U.S. Incredible String Band.

Stumbled here completely by
accident but was amazed to see this album. Dave Satterfield taught me to play the banjo in 1976, and that's the last time I had heard it. Thanks for the download; thanks for the meories.
