Chris Carpenter

From: Detroit, MI, USA

Chris Carpenter is a relatively obscure singer from Detroit who only ever released one single. “This World (Is Closing In On Me)” / “Waterfalls” was initially released by the band Preston in the mid-’60s, and was re-released by Carpenter three times on three different labels. “This World (Is Closing In On Me)” is a very atmospheric piece of psychedelia. Preston’s version is edgier with its use of fuzz guitar. “Waterfalls” is a rather eerie track with vocals that are said to sound like Bobby Vee on acid. Both sides of this single have appeared on various compilation albums.
