Jimmie Packard :: A Time To Look Back (OSR Tapes) CASSETTE

$7.50 CAD
From the OSR Tapes Website:
experienced luthier , operator of Jimmie Packard's Instrument Repairs in his hometown
of Wilder , Vermont , daily music instructor , radio DJ (WNBX Springfield) & more ,
bandleader (Jimmie Packard & the Atom Bombs , Jimmie Packard's Orchestra) , ridiculously
prolific home recordist , & father , Jimmie Packard was born on St. Patrick's Day 1919 and
passed away July 23 , 2003 . what we have here is a "reissue" of one cassette of a series
locally circulated by Mr. Packard in the 1970s and '80s at his many (according to his son ,
Jimmie Sr. played "over 6000 weddings" , including 5 for the same man) many regional shows . A Time To Look Back is a collection of standards , multitracked on homemade guitars
with the kind of improvisational freedom accessible to seasoned lifer musicians . hopefully
this cassette marks the end of a dearth of available recordings by Mr. Packard .
my infinite thanks to Jon Appleton , who gave me this cassette as we liquidated
his tape collection , and to Jim Packard Jr. , who graciously authorized the public
release of this absolutely incredible music . the secret history of Vermont lives on !
60 minutes , original design by Jimmie Packard , formatting by Christina Schneider
