Henske, Judy / Jerry Yester - Farewell Aldebaran (Mega Blowout Sale)

SKU 23-ASHCD 3018
"Timely reissue of this late '60s folk/psych classic from husband and wife team Jerry Yester and Judy Henske. Yester had previously enjoyed an element of fame courtesy of his stint with The Loving Spoonful, but following the band's demise in 1969, he set about producing this little gem with acclaimed folk singer Henske and a bunch of (unidentified) pals which were said to have included Ry Cooder and David Lindley.
Farewell Aldebaran, which is often heralded as one of the most proficient and creative albums of its genre, with Henske's incredible range of vocal styles (during her short solo career she had effortlessly made the transition from comedian to folk singer and then onto an accomplished rock singer) elevating the album to a higher plane. Her mind-blowing vocals on the opening track, the hard-fuzz "Snowblind," gives an early clue to Henske's talent and range, and although this particular vocal style only features on the one song, the sheer diversity of her singing makes every track on this highly original and experimental album a unique experience.
Managed by Herb Cohen, best known for handling Frank Zappa, he suggested that they record an album for the Straight label, and they set about putting their weird and wonderful songs onto tape in Pat Boone’s home studio.”

“The best psych - folk album of the 60's and too, one of the most underrated lps of all times. A real masterpiece. Don't lose it!”-rateyourmusic
