The Insect Trust released two LP’s. The only band I know of, that mixed free jazz with folk. Very eccentric!
Bill Barth, the guitarist, lived in Amsterdam until he died.
Another story is that Bill got a $1.500,00 advance for the first LP and while two other guitarists joined him, he went in search of his lost hero Skip James.
Ultimately they found him in a hospital where they didn’t take good care of Skip. Bill hired a nurse and an ambulance, brought Skip to a good hospital and saw to it that he got the right treatment.
Between 1966 and 1969 Skip recorded two LP’s that we’re released and one that was not released.
John Martin (UK) also did covers of Skip James songs.
If these guys aren’t heroes….? https://youtu.be/dhzn9saWIL8
