THE EMPTY SET – \”Tomorrow Is A Long Time\” / \”Early Mornin\’ Rain\” (Coral 62486) April 1966
After researching this group and disc for quite some time I\’ve still not uncovered very much information so for the time being The Empty Set will remain a mystery to me. They were probably months behind the times releasing this fabulous Byrdsian 12 string folk rock jangler. \”Tomorrow Is A Long Time\” would have been a perfect Bob Dylan composition for The Byrds treatment however, The Empty Set really do turn on the style and have created a worthy jangler. Find it on the Misty Lane compilation \”Byrds Won\’t Fly\”
The other side \”Early Mornin\’ Rain\” is a Gordon Lightfoot number which has been covered many times. The Empty Set\’s version is radio friendly and perhaps square friendly. Peter, Paul & Mary come to my mind.
