***Philamore Lincoln -The North Wind Blew South (1970) lovely dreamy soft Psych. Fading Yellow Artist***

Little is known of this British solo artist other than he issued an obscure single (‘Running By The River’ b/w the outstanding‘Rainy Day’) in 1968, which is strongly rumored to feature some Yardbirds members, including Jimmy Page (guitar) and Chris Dreja (bass), but none were officially credited to the record. In 1970, Lincoln released a U.S. only full length album (‘The North Wind Blew South’) along with a supporting 45 on CBS All songs on the LP were penned by Lincoln, with highlights that include ‘The Plains Of Delight’, ‘Rainy Day’ and of course the spacey title track. Another cut on the album, the simple but quite pleasant ‘Temma Harbour’, had also become a
huge hit for Mary Hopkins in late 1969/early ‘70, prior to the release of Lincoln’s version. The LP has also been rumored to include Page and Dreja as supporting musicians, but it has only been confirmed that Dreja, a then aspiring photographer, took the front and back photos for the album cover. Lincoln later moved out of the spotlight to become a successful record producer. (Info from Last FM)

Artist information sources include: The book, ‘Tapestry of Delights Revisited’ by Vernon Joynson.
