The American Avatar: Love Comes Rolling Down album from the Lyman Family with Lisa Kindred was released on Reprise Records in 1969 and hadn’t made it to a CD release until now. Primarily a blues covers album, with contributions from members of Jim Kweskin and the Jug Band including Jim Kweskin, Geoff Muldaur, and Mel Lyman himself, the family grew out of a Boston suburb underground newspaper called Avatar. By 1970 the family was about 100 people strong and are an ongoing concern to this very day. Nearly 50 years after its debut, American Avatar: Love Comes Rolling Down enters the digital era for a new generation of music listeners to discover.
