Dharma Bums

  • Dharma Bums (Boston)
  • Everything Is Always Alright (Telegraph Hill) 1987 

This trio from the Boston area might have had the name first, but it’s unlikely that their LP ever got distributed much beyond Rhode Island. Owing little to contemporary trends, Everything Is Always Alright is solid, post-pub folk-rock that would surely bring a smile to the lips of diehard Brinsley Schwarz fans. (All six of ’em.)
