Tom Wachunas — Spare Changes (Street Date 11.26.2021)

$25.00

Tom Wachunas – Spare Changes is by far one of the best (and unknown/underappreciated) singer-songwriter Classifying this records ever made.  Classifying the album within a specific genre is a terribly difficult feat – acid folk? folk rock? psychedelic?  A true cornucopia of instrumentation – sax, vibes, kalimba, tabla, guitars, accordion(!) and introspective lyrics.  Imagine being on a Caribbean cruise ship in 1975, and Neil Young happens to be croonin’ with a 12 piece band on some new material that never saw the light of day.

Recorded in Columbus, Ohio USA in 1975 at the now-defunct Owl Recording Studios, Spare Changes was actually Tom Wachunas’s graduation project for his Masters in Fine Arts from The Ohio State University.  Extremely rare – only 1,000 copies of the original pressing were manufactured.

Now available again on high quality 150 gram black vinyl – housed in a 100% recycled board jacket and 100% recycled polybags.
