I have another album I would like to share with Time Has Told Me.

Michael Gately "Gately's Cafe" 1972




















I can't find much information on the Web about this release. I picked it up on the strength of the cover alone. Familiar names Al Kooper and Paul Kossoff appear in the credits, but it's Gately's songwriting and voice that is really compelling. At times Beatlesque, occasionally psychedelic, sporadically CSNY-ish, but often completely unique, Gately's Cafe is one of the great oddball releases in my collection.


Best regards,
ulaes

I found one of his albums, "Still Round," for 69 cents in a thrift store a few years ago. Thought it was all over the map, stylistically. But it's fun.

I have this in my vinyl collection and haven't listened to it in at least twenty-five years. Time to dig it out.
One artist I rarely see posted is Danny O'Keefe. Any chance of some of his albums. For some reason he's fallen through the cracks.
Thanks

Does anyone have the "Still Round" album they would be willing to upload? I can't get a hold of it anywhere!

I second the request for "Still 'Round", it's impossible to find in digital format.

Thanks!
