Best Of The Vanguard Years 69-75 (CD)
The eighteen tracks collected here have been compiled from the seven solo albums that Joe McDonald cut for Vanguard Records between 1969 and 1975 and the one-off soundtrack album for the film Quiet Days In Clichy. After the San Francisco-based Country Joe & the Fish years of 1965 - 1969 and the initial couple of Nashville-recorded solo albums when Joe re-visited Woody Guthrie songs on one and a set of well known country standards like 'Ring Of Fire' and 'Six Days On The Road' on the other, Joe's horizons broadened as he traveled to Europe, with him undertaking the writing of soundtrack music for the first time for the afore-mentioned film of the Henry Miller novel, and included here is 'Mara' from that project. The third solo album "Hold On It's Coming" was recorded in London in the summer of 1970, with one track, 'Air Algiers', describing Eldrige Cleaver's 'getaway' from the US, though it could equally suit Joe's own departure. The album's title track included the talents of Spencer Davis on guitar, vocals and harmonica, while he is joined by guitarist Peter Green on 'Air Algiers'.
