Doug Hream Blunt made music his own way, as something of an outsider artist. But he is a notable enough outsider that Dean Blunt actually took his name from the guy. My Name Is Doug Hream Blunt is a treat of a record, mixing enthusiasm with a non-obvious, highly creative approach to playing. Reissue on Luaka Bop.

8/10 Jack Customer review, 2nd January 2018
Blunt, a non-musician who took a “how to release an album” adult education class in 1985 at the age of 35, originally released his only LP, “Gentle Persuasion”, with some of his classmates in 1987 in San Francisco. This is a re-pressing of that obscure release with some additional tracks. It’s an oddly captivating piece of music that rides on repetitive, hypnotic rhythms rooted in loosely jazzy, soul/pop beats that provide the background for his direct and uninhibited stream-of-consciousness lyrics.
