Jim Sullivan - Highways

Album UFO (Monnie, 1970) Chart Pos: N/A

If legends were to believed Jim Sullivan is probably in outer pace playing a wonderful blend of country and folk music to extraterrestrials, but alas on earth his music has been forgotten, until now.

Last year this masterpiece after years of being bootlegged on shitty sounding vinyl was instead mastered from um... better quality vinyl, at least this album is back in print though about 35 years after its creator mysteriously disappeared in New Mexico.

Highways the opening track from the second side (The Monnie Mix) with its galloping bass and ominous strings is a standout song from an album stuck in a milleau of endless highways, ghost towns, gas stations and of course UFO's

There's an amazing short YouTube documentary on the story of his music and his strange disappearance.
