The Country Sect
The Downliners Sect were intent on producing one of the first ‘concept’ albums when they conceived ‘The Country Sect’, their second album first released in 1965. The idea was to explore the roots of ock’n’roll, which they perceived went as far back as American country and western. It’s said that The Byrds were inspired by the ‘country rock’ notion when this LP first appeared in North America.
Singer Don Craine in an interview for the omprehensive CD liner notes describes the fate of the album and the reasoning behind their exploratory musical policy. Together with six bonus items, this is important addition to the Downliners’ legacy.
