Pat Kilroy


Pat Kilroy was one of the most little-known singer/songwriters to record for Elektra Records in the 1960s, issuing just one album, 1966's Light of Day. It's a strange record, with the folk-blues base common to many performers of the era just before they leapt into folk-rock, but lacking the rock instrumentation and arrangements that would have made it an early folk-rock album. Kilroy's vocals and material are in some ways similar to those on Tim Buckley's weirder late-'60s folk-rock-jazz-psychedelic albums Read more on Last.fm
Pat Kilroy was one of the most little-known singer/songwriters to record for Elektra Records in the 1960s, issuing just one album, 1966's Light of Day. It's a strange record, with the folk-blues base common to many performers of the era just before they leapt into folk-rock, but lacking the rock instrumentation and arrangements that would have made it an early folk-rock album. Kilroy's vocals and material are in some ways similar to those on Tim Buckley's weirder late-'60s folk-rock-jazz-psychedelic albums, but without the depth and power of Buckley's singing or songwriting. Skilled musicians Stefan Grossman, Eric Kaz, and Marc Silber are among the accompanists, and there's a world jazz flavor in the use of conga, tabla, flute, and glockenspiel.

The songs sometime seem to be attempting to conjure a mystic aura, but lack the quality content necessary to live up to those ambitions. Kilroy did not release anything other than this LP, which has become pretty rare. Read more on Last.fm.
