Mick Softley "Capitol" 1976













"Capital" is recorded in Germany, mastered in Holland and released in Swiss (Doll Records).
The album features only his voice and acoustic guitar. All are folky hobo songs except "The Anti-Gravity Device (folk/blues song)" & "Le Monde Des Amants (trad based song)".
Especially, his bitter sweet voices on "Transylvanian Highway" & "Sand" will permeates through your mind.

05. Silence 02:59
06. Transylvanian Highway 08:27
07. Lady May 03:11

09. The Fair Rose 02:58
10. Le Monde Des Amants 02:41

This album seems to be completely unknown, even in his discography in Allmusic.com.
Thank you so much for this.

Hello, Just a line to thank you for Mick Softley's Capital. I've picked up all his other recordings over the years, but I've never seen this one anywhere!
You're a Mighty Man/Woman/Person
Cheers
