Doc Snock f.k.a. Michael Hurley
Michael Hurley is an American singer/guitarist, reportedly born December 20, 1941. He also plays the fiddle.
Hurley's debut album, First Songs, was recorded for Folkways Records in 1965 on the same reel-to-reel machine that taped Leadbelly's Last Sessions. His 1976 LP Have Moicy, a collaboration with the Unholy Modal Rounders and Jeffrey Frederick & The Clamtones, was named "the greatest folk album of the rock era" by the Village Voice's Robert Christgau. The albums I have of his are:
Armchair Boogie (1971)
Have Moicy (1975)/basically with the (un) Holy Modal Rounders
Long Journey (1976)
Parsnip Snips (1996)
