Johndavid Bartlett - Falling Through The Universe (CD)
Until now Johndavid Bartlett has been a legendary lost voice, integral to the foundation of Houston's underground scene in the mid-Sixties. From a tender age his talent was encouraged by Janis Joplin, nurtured by the infamous Red Krayola, informed by the notorious 13th Floor Elevators and, most incredibly, taught by the master himself... Lightnin' Hopkins. It's unsurprising then that there should now be international interest in a long overdue retrospective for this renegade psychedelic troubadour.
Johndavid signed to the legendary yet notorious International Artists label aged seventeen. This is his story as told through his association with the maverick artists signed to the label, who inspired and inform the music on this CD. His International Artists recordings are now deemed lost forever so this is a compilation of the earliest surviving recordings of the songs he performed from the mid-Sixties to the early Seventies. Regardless of when they were recorded, the arrangements remain faithful to the original performances. While the past can't be replaced, the ideas, words and sounds can be encapsulated before they are permanently lost to time and space.
