Richard Quinn: Lint Picking, 1966


One of the most underrated folk singers of our time, Richard Quinn, provides a touching array of numbers focusing on his childhood trials and tribulations. The son of an alcoholic taxidermist and circus performer (his mother was a sword swallower), Quinn was no stranger to emotional and physical upheaval. Having lived in 26 states by the time he turned 19 (before finally settling in Wyoming), Quinn provides a rich patchwork of Americana interwoven with overwhelming hopelessness. If you need a good cry, this is THE album to buy!

Tracks include:

No More Booze for Baby
I Guess this is Texas
Dead Pet Decorations
Stop Making Jokes about My Mom
California Wasn’t Half Bad
The Animals Just Keep Staring
Big Top Terror
Why Wyoming?

AND, BONUS TRACK:

Side-Show Valentine (a beautiful duet with eventual wife, BB, the bearded lady).
