Here’s the opening track off the new “Wayfaring Strangers: Lonesome Heroes” compilation, put together by the friendly cats at America’s most consistently high-quality “lost music” record label, Numero Group of Chicago.

“Before” is warm, spooky…and somehow un-precious even as sensitive Canadian Jim “Schony” Schoenfeld ventures into earnest ecologist territory. Hard to believe this was recorded by a professional hockey player—things were very different in the early ’70s, eh?
