Kevin Coyne- Case History (1972) MP3 & FLAC

"It's starting to rain.  It's starting to pour. Reckon I'll hide in some fat old rich man's door."

After art school, Kevin Coyne spent three years working with patients at a psychiatric facility in Lancashire, and six years later, for his debut record as a solo artist, he created the musical equivalent of One Flew Over the Cuckoo's Nest, a bleak, uncompromising, and beautiful testament to the people he came in contact with during those years. The album is comprised of Coyne's distinctive blues-inflected vocals (sort of like an unhinged Joe Cocker or an untethered Van Morrison) and his memorable acoustic guitar playing. This is a hard one to find, so enjoy the darkness!
