Bill Cooley and Alan Munson were two friends in Santa Barbara, California, spending their early twenties writing folk-rock songs for their pleasure. That was 1972, and they decided to put these songs into the studio, self-produce an album and press a tiny quantity of 500 pieces hoping it could help with getting a contract with a major company. This never happened, as you might have guessed, and their sole album, In Debt, has become a major collector's item among folk rock and psychedelic rock listeners and collectors. Today, original copies of this record fetch astounding sums when changing hands in record fairs or internet auctions. This being a private pressing, you can easily imagine it's not a big production, but that doesn't matter; this album has the right feel and you won't need anything else to make it one of your faves. All tracks are original compositions, and the style is very personal. It's folk rock, but many tracks are quite psychedelic in their own way. But don't look close for influences -- they will not come to mind that easily. Bill and Alan had their own psychedelic folk-rock style, and the raw, sometimes amateurish feel of these recordings gives the album the final, distinctive touch. Never reissued before in any format, this reissue comes with the collaboration of the artists. Remastered sound taken from the master tapes, CD version comes with booklet and outer slimcase.
