Songs For Swingin' Survivors ‎(CD, Album, Mono, RE, RM, Pap). Songs For Swingin' Survivors ‎(LP, Album, RE, 180).

Mick softley and his songs for swinging survivors. Mick Softley’s rare first album has been reissued as part of the double CD Eve Folk Recordings (Retro D597) on the wide-lens RPM label via Cherry Red Records. Since 1991, RPM have steadily issued rare psych such as The Artwoods, Bo Street Runners, The Mindbenders, and The Five Day Week Straw People. Eve Productions (Peter Eden and Geoff Stephens) first signed Donovan when supporting Cops And Robbers in Southend in 1964 but he left less than a year later (they won the court-case but only a derisory pay-off). This development has been surprisingly overlooked by some psych archivists since.

Among the early champions of Essex-born Softley’s career was Donovan, who covered Gold Watch Blues and The War Drags On (the original’s on here) and showcased more at Newport in 1965. One of Blighty’s first Dylanologists, Softley’s debut is a folk-strummer’s delight, his lightness and warmth of touch?both acoustically and vocally?semi-disguising a causticity best heard on Pete Seeger’s The Bells Of Rhymney. A boho spirit of singular style, Softley now lives in Enniskillen, forsaking music for life as a poet. A genuine buried treasure.
