A highly talented singer-songwriter from Lowell, Massachusetts, Bob Martin released Midwest Farm Disaster in 1972 — a record that is generally acknowledged as his masterpiece and a genre benchmark.
Martin’s voice is gravelly, weathered, soulful and honest. Think of a strange Kevin Coyne, Van Morrison, or Bob Lind blend and you’re right on target. The lyrics are top shelf too, the equal or better of most of his critically acclaimed contemporaries.
