Sammy Walker "Same" 1976



In a better and fairer world would Sammy Walker considered one of the greatest and most cherished artists, it's actually somewhat difficult to understand why he isn't. His voice sounds exactly like John Prine's, the songs sounds like their were written by Prine with a help of Gordon Lightfoot and Jerry Jeff Walker. He delivers the songs with the intensity and fragility Bob Dylan did in 1973-75. This  (his debut album) is easily one of the best country-folk/singer-songwriter LP's of the 70s - and it's a damned shame that it hasn't been reissued.
