Hunter Muskett - Hunter Muskett (Rare 1973 UK Folk Rock Bradleys Rec.)

Hunter Muskett. 1973. Hunter Muskett. Bradley's, LP BRADL 1003

Hunter Muskett
Personnel:
A folk-rock band whose first album is now very rare but reputedly not much good. Their second effort was produced by Keith Relf and is likely to be a better starting point for folk fans wanting to investigate.
They also had three tracks on Bradley's Roadshow, a live album on Bradley Records, which also featured Paul Brett's Sage.
( from The Tapestry of Delights - Vernon Joynson)

45:
1 John Blair/Silver Coin (PS) (Bradleys BRAD 303) 1973

A UK folk rock rarity from 1973. After having released excellent albums in 1971 and 1973 the band disappeared. Great multi-part harmonies, fluid electric guitar and strong songs with a rustic vibe and twist of West Coast rock (a bit like Decameron). This, their second album, was produced by Keith Relf of the Yardbirds/Rennaisance. And Michael Giles (ex. King Crimson) is appeared as guest drummer. One of the better British folk rock rarities of the classic '70's folk rock era..(daz.com)

Doug Morter, A brief history:

Doug Morter - Guitars/ Vocals
(Magna Carta, Hunter-Muskett, The Albion Band, The Gathering )
Doug Morter on myspace.com
Doug Morter launched his music career in 1969, playing with Hunter Muskett, supporting David Bowie, and went on his first major toursupporting Ralph McTell. Following this, he had many gigs in UK and Europe with partner Richard Digance, with major tours supporting Jethro Tull, Joan Armatrading,Elkie Brooks , Richard Thompson, Supertramp, Sutherland Brothers, Kinks, and Steeleye Span.
After playing with Richard, Doug recorded and toured as part of the Maddy Prior Band, and as part of the Michael Chapman Band, and, in 1979, went on his first tour as part of The Albion Band. Doug then joined Magna Carta full time in 1980, after guesting on an earlier record. After three albums and a lot of foreign tours, Doug left in 1983 to re-join The Albion Band until 1985/6. In 1985, after releasing his first solo record, Doug started recording the first of two records with guitar virtuoso Jerry Donahue, which became the basis for The Backroom Boys, which still exists and tours whenever schedules permits.
Doug is presently working with Then Came The Wheel, his collaboration with Alan Thomson, Arran Ahmun, from John Martyn’s band, and Foster Paterson from Donnie Munro’s band, plus ‘Celtic Blues’ with Jens Falck, Paul Burgess (10cc, Chris Farlowe) , and Alan Thomson, and The Legends of Folk Rock .Whew!
