michael hurley

"Unbelievably great Hurley recordings from 1964....never before heard. Recorded by Fred Ramsey as part of the same sessions that resulted in Michael's "First Songs" LP on Folkways. Pretty psychedelic classics, sad drifty little tunes, harmonica solos & hallicinatory lyrics that can very well put you into some kinda trance. ...After that we get to hear two great compositions for the first time, & man oh man are they pretty - "Hey Hey Hey Hey" & "I Love You Babe".

Real great stuff all around that we recommend for deep into it Hurley fans & newcomers to his art alike. Michael Hurley is a great American song writer with his own unique way of seeing the world & this LP is a great testament to his vision. Faux folkways wraparound cover with liner note insert by Hurley himself. Co-release with our friends Nero's Neptune." drift

ocho perfectas miniaturas folk, ocho grabaciones caseras de 1964 que nunca habían visto la luz hasta hoy. gracias por tanta belleza, mr. hurley!
