Ronnie Prophet

Ronnie Prophet
Art Records, Miami, FL
1965 ALP-43

Prophet is an excellent guitarist playing a "custom-made" electric guitar of his own design". He uses a thumb pick to "produce a unique and pleasing bass back-beat".

This is a live recording (you can hear people talking in back round from time to time).

Prophet's does vocals on a few tracks and there is one musical comedy bit on the B side that is features unusual sounds. This track doesn't add anything to the feel of the project, but many lounge acts go there to please the crowd. Prophet is obviously talented no matter what you think of his shtick or the vocals (which do sound good on a few tracks).

I've posted one sample track, picked for the best all around atomic space age picking.
