Acid Archives 2nd Edition Updates

Franklin & Hayes & other folky tidbits
Topic: Entry data revision

Except for the insightful (?) review, the Acid Archives entry for the obscure Franklin & Hayes folk LP is woefully short on info. A copy now excavated and sold allows for an update of the basic release data:
FRANKLIN & HAYES (Olmstead Falls, OH)
Autumn To May 1969 (WR Productions WR1-69)

The equally obscure TRANSITIONS album from Michigan also turned up recently with what may be the second known copy. Unlike the one reviewed by Mr DMT in the Acid Archives book, this copy included the back cover paste-on, which has some mighty boastful liner notes plus detailed personnel credits. As it turns out, the album is one of those college project things, a product of 'Maury Dean's Modern Music class' at Monroe County Community College, to be precise. The record is described as featuring a mix of South Detroit 'gutrock' and rural melodies. For a fuller description I refer to the AA review, which accurately speculated on the college project nature of the thing. The title indicates this being the second album in a series, but the first one may never have reached the vinyl pressing stage.

Finally, our Spanish correspondent Juan C pointed out the odd fact that the first album by CHUCK & MARY PERRIN is routinely referred to as 'Brother & Sister', while this supposed title is actually nowhere to be found on the original LP. In other words, this is actually a self-titled LP (the original label gives the title as The Chuck and Mary Perrin Album), which has 'aquired' a new title over the years. Another minor adjustment to the entry: the catalog number is in fact '2101', not '2101/2'.
