Oblivion Records #OD-6
Tom Pomposello and I started Oblivion Records because of his ambitions as a modern bluesman and we started making his album almost right away.
Finally, it was four years from first track to last, recording sessions in at least seven locations, from a two track in a living room on Long Island, to a professional eight track studio in New York’s Soho, and sidemen ranging from Mississippi Fred McDowell to our hometown, world class, musician friends. The album had a lot of blues, but folk, gospel, and rock too. Tom was an authentic American roots musician, and his first album showed off all his good sides.
We released the album in 1975 (the legend on the back said File under: Suburban Blues) and it was our last record. The air had leaked out of the tire. Tom and I went on to a relationship of the greatest friends and colleagues for the rest of his life.
