SONG OF THE DAY Boz Metzdorf – Sails Across the Sea


The only album issued by US singer-songwriter, Robert “Boz” Metzdorf — aka Biz Mitzwah – was his 1978 self-released offering, Signs of Seasons.  Issued was on the fly-by-night Centurion Records, this record is a swirling and intoxicating cosmic folk odyssey and the hearty product of Boz Metzdorf’s collective inspirations and influences – those being the likes of The Everly Brothers, Buddy Holly and Gene Vincent.

Originally issued in the summer of 1978 on the fly-by-night Centurion Records, this scarce collection of richly melodic Americana tunes are new to me, so I’m currently working my way through the album. It’s not all my cup of tea, but it’s pretty soothing, chilled and doesn’t ask much from any listener. I like that sometimes.

In October last year, Anthology Records (the reissue imprint of the indie label, Mexican Summer) reissued this record so if, like me, you missed it the first time round, you can now grab yourself a copy (link below).  Not only that, the Bandcamp page also offers an extensive write-up outlining the background of Boz Metzdorf which is also well-worth a read, so if want to hear and discover more, you can do that here!! Enjoy!
