Jim Burrill


Private renfaire psych from northern California. This sounds a bit like a lost Mayo Thompson album. There are many lovable things about it: a song about Dr. Who, a band member named Joseph Sun-Bear, covers of English ballads of female highwaymen, and mostly the fact that Jim Burrill holds the guitar the wrong way. Also, the song "Lynn's Dream" is about Lynn Blessing from the band The Advancement. One gets the sense that Burrill knows a thing or two about Dungeons and Dragons and Magic: The Gathering. Strangely listenable and likable.

  2. Woah! Thanks for that. Nice version of Cool Colorado Rain. Have you heard Karen Dalton's version? Here's a nice video: Blues Jumped The Rabbit

    Thanks for the Karen Dalton clip, Michael. I didn't know she was missing so many teeth!
