PMG present a reissue of Trevor Dandy's Don't Cry Little Tree, originally released in 1970. With Don't Cry Little Tree, Trevor Dandy created a gentle album full of consoling tunes that attest his trustful relationship to God. Just as you might know it from Cat Stevens's Morning Has Broken (1981), just with more soul - although this association might be caused by the insistent use of piano on this record. Once you hear these songs, it will be hard to deny Trevor's gospel roots, which surface musically steadily and are underlined by the religious lyrics. Don't Cry Little Tree was the first production of the famous Canadian producer Paul Zaza, who says this about this ultra-rare pearl of funky gospel music: "This album was done with no budget and very little equipment. Basically, Trevor Dandy was a gospel singer in a church group. He wanted to record an album to sell at various church gatherings. I was impressed with his lyrics and unique voice so I agreed to produce the record in the basement of my father's house (where I was still living).The album was put together on a 'shoe-string' budget and 1,000 copies were pressed on vinyl. Most were never sold and thrown out. I'm happy that now, almost 50 years later, there appears to be an audience for him."
