Two things set this release apart from all else we offer. First it’s an album of songs rather than instrumental music: second, we recorded and produced ourselves, the only release to date on the HEARTS OF SPACE label. You’d expect us to be biased about this album, and here’s why.

Buddy Comfort is a pure and caring soul who lives among the redwood trees, has an absolutely gorgeous voice, and is a very accomplished musician and songwriter. Of all the singers we’ve encountered in our area in the last ten years, Buddy has consistently moved us the most.

Basically a folk artist and balladeer, his songs have an expanded frame of reference in time and space we call “Cosmic Folk.” His subjects are not yesterday’s news; nor is he concerned with simple nostalgia for our lost 19th century whatever.

Rather, he looks deeper and farther – to the age of myth, the kingdom of nature and sky. Stephen Davis of New Age Magazine called this album “lovely and heartfelt, holding a torch for mythic romance and a child’s reverence for the earth.”

In 1981 we invited Buddy to join us for a special concert-on-the-air. His performance that day was so fine that we found we had captured six of the songs on this album. The rest were carefully recorded in our studio and Buddy Comfort is the result, a tender combination of sensitive lyrics with acoustic guitar, viola, flute, and soprano sax.

If you loved early Joni Mitchell or Judy Collins albums and mourned their “progress” you will find a kindred spirit in Buddy Comfort.
