Mac Gayden was one of the original members of Barefoot Jerry and before that of Area Code 615. Both bands consisted of country session pickers with a knack for rock and roll. Though slightly offbeat. And using whatever influence necessary for creating exiting music. A footnote in Southern Rock, especially Barefoot Jerry were an eclectic force to be reckoned with. A shame hardly anybody noticed (though Charlie Daniels did mention them in 'The South's Gonna Do it Again').
After Barefoot's debut Mac went on to become a solo artist, releasing three albums in the 70's. This one, 'Hymn To The Seeker', is my favorite. It has a bit of a hippie-feel to it, but it's also very adventurous and all good fun. Play this in the garden while you're BBQ-ing with some friends in the sun. It's a treat!
When I was about to make a new rip of this, I searched if it wasn't already circulating. Turns out it was, but all I could find were some dead links. So I ripped it at 256 kbps. It turned out very nice, but after I was done I found the other version. I grabbed that one, and I must say that one is very good too.
Anyhoo, here you have it.
