Hamilton Camp :: I Shall Be Released

hamilton campFrom the wholly acoustic album, 1969’s Welcome Hamilton Camp, this deep and brooding Dylan cover resides amongst a small collection of musical meditations in the form of original songs and hypnotic covers ranging from Bob Dylan and Simon & Garfunkel to Leonard Cohen.

Coupled with the reverberations of harmonica accompaniment (sounding not unlike Neil Young’s harp), Camp’s vocals transcend most folk singers and lend themselves to an operatic comparison which takes each song to new heights. He dabbles with folk narratives and tells stories of Indians and soldiers, but it is the tone and phosphorescent atmosphere of this record that is most important.
