Bob Hughes - My Old Man (1976 uk, nice folk rock, 2011 korean remaster)

My Old Man is the first release of Bob Hughes, a great musician and singer/songwriter. It was recorded in only one session of 12 hours - two sessions for the The Kids Are Ok!, with the help of the guitarist Ron Turner - aka The Boy and Carmen Cinque - Chic who added extra vocals. What is very impressive, regarding the quality of the LP, a lost folk classic album? There is not much to say except it's beautiful, touching and poignant.
