Indiana Highway and Faraway Folk: Good Tidings Of Great Joy – RA
This is a Christmas EP sampler from the RA label featuring a rather out of place cut (We Three Kings by Indiana Highway) There is a crudity in terms of recording and even some timing slips which for me at least only add to the sound. I have the other Indiana Highway EP which is fairly straight Mod / R&B, however on this Christmas sampler, the band seems to have morphed into modal Jazz waltz maestros! Based in Devon 20 miles from where I live, Indiana highway toured the local clubs and seemingly engaged in session work on some other RA releases. Until recently I had never seen or heard this recording, personally due to the sound, obscurity and local connection I’m buzzing on this one right now.
