Just when you thought every loner folk genius had been
outed/discovered, hyped and pontificated about, a new/old
challenger lurks in the murky depths of time... and Maine.
Sure, you have your Skip Spences, Dave Bixbys, Stone
Harbours and Perry Leopolds already but have you heard the
lonesome sound of Bill Stone? Well, don't feel bad, hardly
anyone has - unless you lived in rural Maine in the early 70s
and grabbed his barely-ever seen LP in the day. Titled simply
‘Stone’, Bill’s mysterious album was pressed in the micro-est of
quantities, covering wistful, airy psychedelia on par with the
UK’s Mark Fry classic ‘Dreaming of Alice’, while still evoking the
earthy, evening-hour melancholy of Leonard Cohen or Tom
Rapp. Stone was also especially influenced by one Donny P.
Leitch, one Robby Zimmerman and much trad folk, while
growing up in his hometown of Old Town, Maine.
