Released:
Label: New Rounder
By the time Hartford recorded 1976's Mark Twang, his first release for the Flying Fish imprint, the progressive bluegrass icon was performing solo, switching between fiddle, guitar, banjo and amplified plywood. The record sounds both archaic and wholly modern, as if Hartford were a backwoods Appalachian learned in avant-garde art and poetry. Tunes like "Little Cabin Home on the Hill Waugh Waugh" aren't even real tunes, just super-odd vocal workouts featuring Hartford's unmistakable humor.
