John Peterson - Where Does It Go From Here (1976)

Now I confess that I have a heart for the so called "real people" scene. Ron Moore described this album in his Underground Sounds edition as an "acoustic and electric mix with a deep acid vibe" whilst the Acid Archives found "A couple of good psychy tracks and the rest singer/songwriter mediocrity". Well in fact it's a little bit of a poor man's Tim Buckley but has a certain charme that pleases me (sometimes). The best track is arguably "Summer Is Over". But I must admit that if I'm in the mood for the "real people" thing, I'd rather go for the first "Cosmic Michael" or Peter Grudzien's "Unicorn". John Peterson was from Illinois and his album was reissued in 1997 (Psychedelic Archive Rec. PALP 1005)
