    ABNER JAY

    I Don't Have Time To Lie To You

    [engl] A never before released batch of recordings by the great one man band troubadour....and maybe his best record to date! Seriously. Abner has recorded the majority of the songs found on this LP over and over - some were recorded with R&B bands in the late 1950’s, some as earnest folk ballads in the early 1960’s and some as homemade one man band recordings on electric banjo, drum and harmonica throughout the 1970’s. Here Abner plays these songs more deeply felt than at any other point, accompanied by his electric guitar, plaintive harmonica and solid almost tribal bass drum. We don’t know exactly what date these recordings were made, but they stand as absolutely timeless. Unless you are some kind of sociopath, you will be moved by these performances. I don’t have time to lie to you. Abner Jay is one of the world’s most unique and important artists. No one sounds like Abner. It’s the blues, ancient folk ballads, spirituals, R&B, and pop all rolled into one very American sound. A truly independent musician who performed at swap meets and fairs out of his custom converted trailer, Abner Jay traveled the United States from the 1930s until his passing in 1993. Told with his characteristic blend of humor and pathos, “I Don’t Have Time To Lie To You” is an unsparing take on the country Abner Jay knew so well. Licensed from Brandie Records and Abner’s family, 160g black vinyl comes in heavy duty 28pt tip-on jacket.
