Gimmer Nicholson, Christopher Idylls (1968/2016)
A good story, this – one of those ones where you have to thank the reissue labels – and LightInTheAttic usually gets it right. I bought this on a whim really – having heard about it. The recording took place in the late 1960s, it was eventually issued years later, then reissued more recently…Gimmer’s only record. He died in 2000 in his early 50s, he leaves behind this wonderful curio – the sort of album that is genre-less and possibly without antecedent. You can hear so many things in it. It’s music that takes you someplace special. I’m chuffed to have found it.
