Digitally remastered edition of this 1973 album from the critically acclaimed singer/songwriter. David Ackles recorded four albums between 1968 and 1973, this being the fourth. His third album American Gothic had received considerable critical acclaim in the US and UK but he struggled with the pressure of expectations when making the follow-up. He eventually withdrew from the recording studio and produced Five & Dime at home on a four-track recorder. He delivered "a modest and simple record" on time and under budget. Describing Ackles's style in 2003, critic Colin McElligatt wrote, "An unlikely clash of anachronistic show business and modern-day lyricism... deeply informs his recorded output. Alternately calling to mind Hoagy Carmichael, Irving Berlin, Robbie Robertson, Tim Hardin, and Scott Walker, Ackles forged an utterly unique sound out of stray parts that comprise a whole that is as uncompromising as it is unrivalled". This is a new, unopened CD in its original packaging.
