Real Name:Win Schell ... He played the southwestern Ontario folk circuit in the late 1960s and early 70s. His two albums never became best-sellers, but they maintained enough of a following to make the leap to the digital world and on the want list of many record collectors who seek out original vinyl pressings of his first 2 albums. The second album, 1976's City Wilderness, features more conventional folk. It's easily recognized by its cover, a Robert Crumb-influenced drawing of downtown London, Ontario with Win and various real-life city characters transformed into cartoon animals. Roger Baker, a friend of Win's, created the image.

Well known for his participation as a guitarist on Bob Dylan’s “Blood On The Tracks” 1974 Minnesota recording sessions. Kevin Odegard has released two albums; The self-titled Kevin Odegard on Wooff (1971) and Silver Lining on ASI Records (1975). Silver Lining is a well polished album compared to his debut album. Widely influenced by country, folk and pop music of the 1970’s, Silver Lining is a fine example resembling mid 1970’s singer-songwriter music. It is supported by the famous Bob Rivkin (Bobby 'Z') and David Rivkin with a production credit by David Zimmerman.

Finnish duo of musicians/singers Marianne Nyman and Mikael Wiik, assisted by bassist Leif Kiviharju, Wigwam's drummer Ronnie Österberg and Tasavallan Presidentti's saxophonist/flutist Pekka Pöyry.Musically somewhere between Folk and soft Progressive Rock with good instrumental sections and even some light jazzy/bluesy flavors.Nice vocal harmonies and clean instrumentation with great bass work, mellow flute, calm keyboards and controlled acoustic/electric sections.It lacks some dynamics, that is for sure, but the arrangements are detailed and definitely above your average Rock album.The duo produced another 2 singles towards the end of the 80's.
