BOBBY MANKIN – Doomed By Dope (Rainbow 1968 US) M-/Vg+
Cool and freigtening private release of one Texas man’s struggles with the devil’s weed. Bobby Mankin is from Houston and his 1968 album tells quite a powerful story about involvement with drugs, pushers, and the law. And of course, his conversion to Christianity afterward. This rare LP is M-but due to a poor pressing it plays with a bit of crackle.
