Michael Hurley's Blue Navigator Released on 8-Track

Posted by Miss Ess, October 8, 2010 11:09am | Post a Comment


Michael Hurley
is one of the largely unsung heroes of the original 60s folk movement, and he's still around and putting out great music. If you haven't ever heard his stuff before, there's bunches of it to choose from. Might I suggest Blueberry Wine or Snockgrass or Armchair Boogie?

For your perusal, here is one of his most famous songs, "Werewolf," a version of which appears on Blue Navigator:



You can listen to "Who Ever Heard of You," also from Blue Navigator, here.

But if you are a seasoned fan, and perhaps a bit of a luddite too, I have some news for you! Secret Seven Records in conjunction with Mississippi Records is exclusively releasing one of Hurley's best albums, the previously way outta print Blue Navigator, on 8-track! Yes, you read that correctly: 8-track. We do sell 8-tracks here at Amoeba! Apparently Hurley was at some point in his long career an 8-track repairman, so this seems quite apt. The record originally came out in 1984 and has been unavailable ever since, as a fire destroyed the original master tapes. It's sound is classic Hurley: saloon-type piano rags, fine pickin' and songs about women, wine and wolverines, all crafted to loopy perfection. For more info on the release, check out the Secret Seven blog.

Blue Navigator will be available at Amoeba San Francisco this Monday, October 11, and is limited to 50 copies.

In further 8-track and Hurley-related news, there will be a screening of the 8-track collector themed documentary So Wrong They're Right at ATA Studios on Valencia in SF this Saturday, Oct 9th! Hurley is one of the many "experts" interviewed in the film, along with David Byrne, Tiny Tim, T-Bone Burnett and others.
