Hurvitz, Sandy / Essra Mohawk - Sandy’s Album Is Here At Last CD (expanded) (Mega Blowout Sale)

SKU 23-HST 512
“Sandy Hurvitz began her career at the age of sixteen when she released a single for the old Liberty label. By the time she was nineteen she was playing keyboards for Frank Zappa’s Mothers Of Invention. Zappa signed her to a solo recording contract for his personal label and decided to produce the record himself. He quickly clashed with the nineteen year old, though, and turned producing chores over to band mate Ian Underwood.
What emerged was a stark and bare bones affair that focused upon her voice, piano playing, and songwriting ability.
If there is one thing which has been consistent throughout her 45-year career it has been her ability to create a song. Even at a young age Hurvitz wrote material for such artists as the Shangri-Las and Vanilla Fudge. Her songs would have been better served here if the sound had been developed a bit more. Those tracks that add even one other instrument benefit a great deal.
Sandy’s Album Is Here At Last may have an unfinished feel but it does introduce her as a performer of note as it presents her at her most basic. Her voice is mature and serves the lyrics well. Her piano playing provides a foundation and at times seems almost to run counterpoint to the vocals which works well in this case.”-rym
