Request
Zephyr "Sunset Ride" (US Rock 1972)

There are two kinds of Zephyr fans; those who think the band died when Tommy Bolin left, and those who know it didn't. This second and final album for Warner featured Boulder, CO, guitar slinger Jock Bartley in place of Tommy Bolin, the replacement of Bobby Berge and John Faris, and one of the few known recorded appearances of Bobby Notkoff, other than his work with Neil Young, for whom he created the heart-wrenching violin break on "Running Dry." Without Bolin, the band took a decided turn toward jazz. This is a stunning album, featuring unknown classics like "Moving Too Fast," "Chasing Clouds," and "Winter Always Finds Me." Lead singer Candy Givens passed away some years ago, and this album is perhaps her most passionate legacy. Reissued on CD by the One Way label in 2000. ~ William Ashford, All Music Guide

hello lizardson,
as the "recommend"-thread seems ill-accepted I take THIS SPACE HERE to point to 2 Newgrass albums which I uploaded. On them you find the best contemporary US acoustic pickers. i saw that band doing a show with robin williamson´s merry band. the fantastic fiddling of kenny kosek got williamson smiling brightly. of course: thanks a lot for the 3 williamson boots!

Zephyr - outstanding blues rock. I recall seeing this when I was younger but never was able to muster enough of that paper route money to take a chance. Many thanks for this lost classic - great one!!
