This is very interesting blues-rock with long instrumental passages. Very tough, “to hard rock,” performed by Cotton Field Woman. The album is interesting, but pity it is very short – just 28 minutes and great uncertainty as to the date of issue!?

Farm was a late ’60s band from Southern Illinois, whose bluesy, country rock style was very similar of that of The Allman Brothers, and Canned Heat. In fact, Farm did an excellent version of the The Allman Brothers’ “Statesboro Blues.”
Farm released a very obscure and rare album of heavy garage psych with fuzz guitars, congas, mouth harp, organ, bottleneck and timbales. Recorded at Golden Voice Recording Studios in South Pekin, Illinois and released on a small record label from Flora, Illinois, was limited to a 500 copy pressing Origional LP selling between $300 and $500.. Featuring largely original material, the set’s fairly varied. The opening instrumental ‘Jungle Song’ and ‘Sunshine In My Window’ are both strong guitar-propelled numbers that sound heavily influenced by both The Allman Brothers and Santana. Elsewhere, ‘Cottonfield Woman’ was a nice slice of blues-rock, while as you’d probably expect from the title ‘Let the Boy Boogie’ and a cover of ‘Statesboro Blues’ were okay slices of boogie.

(Quoting from the liner notes – “Many thanks to George Leeman, our friend and spiritual guide” – anyone know who Leeman is?)
Best Regards,
