Tony Kelly - Bring Me Back (1972 uh, a splendid mixture of folk, soft rock and psych, 2014 korean remaster)

Tony Kelly’s “Bring Me Back” Is an album that has been secretly known among people who like this kind of music for a long time, but for some reason it's extremely less exposed compared to other artists from the same genre. 

His voice is similar to Ernie Graham in a slightly nasal area. Sound creation is also a feeling that made Ernie Graham a little more swamp-oriented. Produced by Grease Band's Bruce Rowland this 1972 album,  released by polydor, has something in common with Gerry Lockran's "Wun".

Terry Stannard (drums) is also familiar with albums by Roger Morris, Gerry Lockran, Bryn Haworth.  A melancholy British swamp masterpiece album. The photo of the jacket that looks cold matches well with the content and is the best. Increasingly popular in recent years. It continues to be difficult to obtain.
