Plain as black and white
So here's a little unabashed hometown boosterism, sort of. Check these guys out if you like Americana Rock (a little rock when you twang, a little twang when you rock). Well worth the listen, well worth the purchase.
The Mallett Brothers are based in Portland, ME, which is not my hometown. The two Malletts in the band are sons of David Mallett, a folk singer who's been toiling in semi-obscurity for getting close to 40 years -- his closest brush with fame was probably as the songwriter of "The Garden Song," covered by many and a minor hit for John Denver some decades back. David IS from my little town of birth nestled in the backwoods of Maine.
Hey excellent news about the Jerry release. I'm a little concerned that the website doesn't appear to be close to operational (a front page and a link to a sparsely-stocked store is not much to go on), but we have some hope!
For All the Jerry Love in the Whole World
and Beyond, XO!
Love is real, yeah, real.
But It can't Be what is it not...
Nor will it ever Be.
But love is real, yeah--- > real.
Rock On! I love you-all, xo!

Whoa! Haven't listened to this in 35-40 years! Found it used at Amoeba Records. As I'm listening I can hear it could be the blueprint for the ABB's "You Don't Love Me" - or vice versa. Awesome and wonderful excess!!!
