"The True Story of Abner Jay" is a record released by the brilliant reissue label Mississippi Records. They dug up this gem somewhere in time and I'm glad they did because the songs featured on this album are amazing. Abner Jay sings folk songs that are raw and blunt. Songs like "I'm So Depressed", "Cocaine" and "The Reason Young People Use Drugs" are all great examples of his intense story telling. On this album Abner is a one man band playing the electric banjo, drums and singing all at the same time. There is plenty to know about him and I'm not about to start a biography in the post. Just download and listen to the man, his words will charge through your ears and plaster themselves in your skull.
Also, you should buy this record. I buy records all the time but this just made me warm inside. Included with the heavy weight vinyl are four inserts: A Transcriptions of monologues, a bio, an advert and a classy photograph of Abner. While looking for a link for buying the LP I noticed that most places were out of stock, pick one up while you can. Limited pressing of 1,000.
