We?ve had quite a few requests over the years for this Cambridge, Mass. acoustic band who, as legend has it, were signed by Al Kooper when he went out to his reception area and found the group performing for the Columbia office secretaries! In fact, Kooper was so taken by them (principally guitarist/songwriter John Compton and violinist Robin Batteau, who later turned up in the band Pierce Arrow) that this album featured appearances by members of Blood, Sweat & Tears and by Kooper himself! We?re reissuing this lost 1969 classic with original artwork and new notes featuring quotes from John Compton himself...a Collectors? Choice Music exclusive!

"Appaloosa has a sound that is hard to put in a box, maybe folk rock baroque. The lead singer, John Compton, has an easy intimacy, which Robin Bateau's faithful cello complements through many of the ballads. Each song is a sweet private journey.
This was a favorite of mine when it was first recorded 35 years ago. I looked for a copy for 25 years before I tracked down John Compton on the internet. So glad this album has finally be released on CD!"
