Peter Harris – Ruby<?xml:namespace prefix = o ns = "urn:schemas-microsoft-com:office:office" />

Australian Psych Folk


Thank you for looking at my item.


Here on offer is one of Australia’s rare psych folk gems.  Peter Harris was originally a member of the legendary psych folk duo Madden & Harris back in 1974 where they recorded the highly original and brilliant album Fool’s Paradise.  Twelve months later Peter Harris recorded his first and only album in the vein of Fool’s Paradise entitled Ruby. 


This 1975 rarity was recorded on the obscure Ritz label in 1975.  For those of you that have heard the haunting Fool’s Paradise album I can assure you that this album is a superb follow-up.  It is obvious that much of the Madden & Harris sound originated from the talents of Peter Harris.


Songs include:


·       Ruby

·       Early Morning Vigil

·       Beautiful Woman

·       Shellfish

·       Legend

·       Do You Ever?

·       I Danced …

·       Second Hand Dreams

·       Be What You Wanna Be

·       Lennie

·       My Guide


Unfortunately there are no credits regarding the players or instruments on this album.  From listening to this album there is keyboard, guitar (bass), drums, synthesisers and melotron.




Cover – Has some ring wear.  A 5cm split at the top corner and general wear and tear – VG-.


Vinyl – Is near excellent condition.  Rarely played and sounded great on my turntable with a minimum of noise.  There is some writing on the label and a sample sticker – Excellent-.


In all a fantastic psych folk album by a member of the legendary Madden & Harris duo in extraordinarily pleasing audio condition.  This is a rare album on a custom label and only issued in Australia.
