1971's MUDLARK is one of Leo Kottke's earliest albums, and the first to fully integrate his unique vocal style--he once famously described his froggy baritone as sounding like "geese farts on a foggy day"--with his stunning guitar wizardry. A classic of DIY folk-rock, MUDLARK is simply produced, beautifully arranged and clearly recorded.
The performances sound live and intimate, whether on the delicate yet sturdy instrumentals or on vocal exercises like a surprisingly effective reworking of the Byrds' "Eight Miles High." Other highlights include the traditional folk tune "Cripple Creek" and the classical guitar showcase "Bourree." A version of Kim Fowley's bizarre "Monkey Lust" with the pop eccentric himself on vocals is one of Kottke's stranger efforts, but a respectful version of mentor John Fahey's "Poor Boy" is a nice touch.
