Garnett, Gale - My Kind of Folk Songs – Used LP
G+ (beat up copy, but played okay and sounded pretty decent on our turntable, noisy scuff on side two)
While most folk purists (which was an absurd bunch anyway) likely dismissed this version of pop-folk from this young lassie from New Zealand, but it's actually slightly more enjoyable and interesting than the folksters from this era. This debut is a varied set and gets sappy at time, but has some enjoyable moment, Garnett's vocals backed with harmonica and Sid Bass arrangements, produced by Andy Wiswell. This 1964 album contains her hit "We'll Sing in the Sunshine" (and the allbum was quickly repackaged to emphasize the hit in the cover) which seems more of a country pop song, but the song isn't exactly representative of the set as she focuses on the more pop-folk and world side of her sound, a sound that pulls in influences from around the globe.
