Your Daily Lick: Sparky Grinstead

Winter Comes and Goes (Sparlene Records)



Recorded in producer Eric Kampman's living room, this is a decidedly do-it-yourself release. Grinstead, aka Norman Famous, began home recording back in the late 1970s, issued a trio of full-lengths, then stopped - making Winter Comes and Goes his first in 26 years. As a collection of modest, introspective folk-pop tunes, it works just fine.
