Emmett Finley’s 1971 eponymous Psychedelic Folk Rock release is a Singer/Songwriter’s dream come true. Finley recorded his opus at Synchron Studios, prior to it being dubbed Trod Nossel Studios by owner, “Doc” Cavalier. The enterprising studio owner also produced the record and released it on his own imprint, Poison Ring Records. Backed by Hans Peter Shulle (keyboards/backing vocals), Dan Zelleman (bass/backing vocals), Ray Monte (percussion/backing vocals), and the Ellington Sisters (backing vocals), Finley fronts the ensemble with his heartfelt vocals and passionate guitar. He beautifully expresses a wide range of emotions across the eight song offering through his stellar penmanship and performance.
Finley went on to sign with CBS Records, only to walk away from the deal to study Classical guitar under the tutelage of Leonid Bolotine. Fervor Records is proud to offer the official digital reissue of Finley’s landmark 1971 LP in conjunction with our friends at Poison Ring Records.
