Nine years after its original release, Charlie Parr’s critically acclaimed second album, King Earl, is back- only this time, it’s on wax.
Chaperone Records is proud to re-release this rare classic on double 10 inch vinyl.
Praise for King Earl:
“King Earl is an album of stunning simplicity…an incredible journey through the back roads of traditional American folk music” -Misplaced Music
“This is exactly how folk music should sound, it’s raw and exciting.” -Road Records
“This album is about dark, gothic blues; men ruined by love, sinners searching for redemption and hope in hopeless times. That someone can still conjure up all of these images with just a voice and guitar confirms, after all these years, the undiminished strength and continuing relevance of traditional American folk music.” – Americana-UK.com
