Bob Martin’s Midwest Farm Disaster (1972, RCA Records) is one of those perfect albums that somehow lies in the mythic place just beyond the reach of public opinion. Revered in folk freak circles for its top shelf songwriting and an unmistakably weathered voice, the Lowell, Massachusetts songwriter’s debut record remains largely unheard by music fans. But history has its way with great works. We here at SC Publishing are proud to announce we are partnering with Bob, joining the cause of spreading the gospel of Martin far & wide. Songs like “Captain Jesus” and “Blind Marie” — reminiscent of the early work of John Prine, Gene Clark and Van Morrison — are timeless works that say about the human condition in under four minutes than most novels say in five hundred pages. Welcome aboard, Bob.
