MICHAEL HURLEY - Fatboy Spring LP (SEC-7-009 / MR-094)
A full LP of never before released Hurley recordings from 1972 - 73! Great early versions of classic Hurley songs such as Automatic Slim & the Fatboys, Drivin' Wheel, Ghost Woman Blues, Watchin' the Show & The Portland Water. Hurley is backed up by "The Fatboys" - not the rotund hip hop crew from the film "Disorderlies" but rather a bunch of not so fat nice guys in Vermont who played mostly for the local dairy farmers. (Later they were known as "Sheriff Mocus & the Deranged Cowboys") A laid back countryish album sure to please the hardcore Hurley fan & casual listener too. Deep & breezy. Cover painting by Michael. A co-release from Mississippi and Secret Seven.
