Item ID: 370953

At times this album is a gorgeous, ethereal blend of psychedelic folk and offbeat pop; but there are some funk and avant-garde moves too (where did those crazy orchestrations, wild guitar, and breakbeats on the fierce anti-war rave-up Hard Headed Woman come from?), all supported by an odd assortment of instruments, including flute, bells and a generous helping of fuzz guitar. Chicago-based duo Chuck Hollins and David Starr only made this one album, which originally appeared in 1970 on the Ovation label. All we know about them is what the original ads for the album said: "David Starr learned piano when he was three, began composing when he was four. At twenty-one he was playing flute with the Chicago Symphony Orchestra. Chuck Hollins picked up a guitar one day and just started playing.... by the time he left Northwestern with his Creative Writing degree he was turning his poetry into music." Others have said: "Unique blend. with a lovely dreaming, drifting vibe" - the Acid Archives; "Many diverse influences from pop-psych, mystical mellow passages, quasi-classical touches, delightful ethereal flute, trance-like vocals and fuzz guitar. there is much to appreciate on this largely undiscovered gem" - Fuzz, Acid & Flowers. Our deluxe mini-LP sleeve CD edition has four bonus tracks, including a "hidden track" with some rare sound effects plucked from the vaults. The CD version is limited to 1,000 copies.
Track List: 1. Talking to Myself (2:58 - 4:22); 2. Krishna Dov (2:35); 3. Cry Baby Cry (3:17); 4. Twin City Prayer (1:36); 5. John Hurt (2:12); 6. Hard Headed Woman (5:21); 7. Home? (3:36); 8. Vivace (2:57); 9. Lovable (3:50); 10. Digress (2:50 - 5:13); 11. Stayin High (2:23); 12. Sidewalks Talkin (3:32); 13. Feelin Good (2:10). CD only Bonus Tracks: 14.
