Kathy & Carol

The group name really sounds like some horrendous radio talk show that my mom would listen to. Thankfully it is so far away from that drivel. This is really a beautiful, plaintive folk album. Their intertwined vocals are so ethereal and otherworldly that this record seems almost inhuman. The autoharp and acoustic guitar are a nice addition, but it's the vocals only tracks that I could listen to for eternity. All these (new weird) folky fakers currently pedaling they're recycled junk should give this a close listen and see how it's really done.

  3. Thanks for this - beautiful hypnotic harmonies. They must have been fairly popular once - Wolfgang's Vault has 5 concerts from them.

  4. I would have never thought them to be popular. Yet it was released on a major label so it couldn't have been all that obscure.
