Released: Mar 1972

In the early 1970s the Muldaurs released two really cool but overlooked albums: Pottery Pie and Sweet Potatoes. Any serious fan of hippie-era roots rock (the Band, Randy Newman, Ry Cooder, even Van Dyke Parks) really must hear these records, especially the latter. Surrounded by some of the folk revival's best musicians, Geoff and Maria turn in a brilliant set of folk-pop filtered through warm if oddball production lightly colored by the psychedelic excesses of the previous decade.
