Lobo's first three albums

It took me two months before I could find the time to put these three records on the turntable. They have been given to me by my friend, Derek, from Singapore. At first, I was told that he owned only five records but what a gem of a discovery! Roland Kent Lavoie's first three albums: Introducing Lobo, Of A Simple Man and Calumet. Yes, Lavoie is known better as Lobo, the stage name he used on his records and in public. These three albums were released in the early 70s and earned him worldwide recognition. I won't mention the other two yet, perhaps next time, but I can assure you that they are also treasures!

I find "Am I true to myself" so meaningful.Got to know the nice lyrics only after listening to the song a few times and going past the nice catchy tune.
