Album · 1966 · 12 Songs. Steve Gillette, Anne Hills, Cindy Mangsen & Michael Smith. Carolyn Hester (Remastered). Ramblin' Boy. Tom Paxton.
Gillette, unlike some of his more politically oriented contemporaries, is here unafraid to be unabashedly romantic, crooning his unforgettable songs in a smooth baritone more reminiscent of Bob Goulet than Bob Dylan. His timeless tunes often have the feel of hundred-year-old American folk classics, conjuring images of dark forests, steam locomotives and fairy tale love affairs. The backing musicians provide sparse, understated accompaniment throughout, perfectly complementing Gillette's mellow strains with delicate watercolor-like playing.
Steve Gillette was one of a great many singer-songwriters to emerge during the early-60s folk scene. Although he was working as a professional musician since at least 1964 (when he co-wrote what is probably his most famous song, Darcy Farrow ), this was the only album he released during the 1960s, which may be one reason why he has remained obscure. The prevailing sound of the album is muted and ethereal; the music seems to emerge from a deep blue haze.
Since their marriage in 1989, Steve Gillette (born 1942) and Cindy Mangsen have been traveling, performing and recording together. A second duet album, The Light Of The Day, was named Top Folk Album of 1996 by Rich Warren (WFMT) and Matt Watroba (WDET). Their third duet recording, A Sense Of Place, was released on Redwing Music in 2001.
