Hard to find. Music is (also) inspired by the Grateful Dead. Artwork by Jim Evans wo also did the ‘Wipe your windows’ Allman Br. Band album, among many more. CD and Inlay in very fine condition.
Former Beat Of The Earth leader Phil Pearlman assembled Relatively Clean Rivers in the early ’70s and eventually released this excellent rural rock album in 1975. RCR is recognized by those fortunate enough to have heard it as one of the very finest albums of the era, with a clearly-defined American sound akin to The Grateful Dead in all their American Beauty pomp or CSNY circa Déjà Vu. An album highly recommended to anyone even remotely interested in ’70s West Coast music or simply great music in general.
