Not sure how many of you--if any--are familiar with the music of Daniel Higgs (e.g.: Lungfish, Skull Defekts), but I recently scored a copy of the limited edition LP "The Godward Way." Higgs's solo work harkens back to early music--pre-music industry music--and is probably hard on the casual music listener, but his work is just so...PROLIFIC. "The Godward Way" is a 24-minute "jam" on the long-neck banjo and mouth harp with somew chanting/singing thrown in for good measure. And, as an added bonus, the LP came with a CD copy for easy portability.
I have several of Higgs's solo records, and, if you're interested in jumping into that realm, I highly suggest starting with "Say God" of "Beyond & Between." They're less abrasive than such records as "Atomic Yggdrasil Tarot" or "Clairaudience Fellowship."

Beautiful Staple Singers. I have
never not loved this song. I dreamly
sang this throughout Veteran's Day.
