Eric Mercury

Artist: Eric Mercury
LP: Electric Black Man
Song: "Night Lady"
[ listen ]
Song: "Hurdy Gurdy Man"
[ listen ]

I found this 1969 debut solo LP by Eric Mercury at Another Part of the Forest while in Cincinnati this past summer. Born into a musical family in Toronto, Canada, Eric played with several different groups there before moving to Chicago, USA and launching his solo career at the end of the 1960s. A decade later he somehow landed the role of Rudy the League Commissioner in THE FISH THAT SAVED PITTSBURGH. You can read more about the handsome and talented Mr. Mercury here and here.
