Title: Old Forgotten Altars: The 1960s Demos
Label: Omnivore Recordings

2020 collection. In a career spanning more than four decades, John Stewart swiftly progressed from his beginnings in a southern California garage band, through folk groups The Cumberland Three and The Kingston Trio, to a successful solo career. He contributed well over 40 albums and more than 600 songs to our musical universe. Omnivore is thrilled to present Old Forgotten Altars: The 1960s Demos. Four tunes found here wound up on The Kingston Trio's Children Of The Morning album released in 1966 with one of them, "The Spinnin' Of The World," getting a second airing on 1979s hit album, Bombs Away Dream Babies. Three duets with Buffy Ford Stewart foreshadow Signals Through The Glass album which the singing partners, and later husband and wife team, would release on Capitol Records in 1968. This collection also features five tracks that would form nearly half of Stewart's classic California Bloodlines album released in 1969. Of particular note, "July, You're A Woman" makes it's first recorded appearance here alongside demos for "Mother Country" and "The Pirates Of Stone County Road." In 2001, Stewart was honored by the World Folk Music Association with a Lifetime Achievement Award and continued to perform live until nearly 2008. We honor his life's work and legacy with this peek behind the curtain into his songwriting process while he was making his way from The Kingston Trio to his solo career.
