Imperfection

12" LP

Availability: In stock

$14.99

Quick Overview

Vinyl only release. Anyone who loves outsider folk legends from Tom Rapp to Roy Harper or Gary Higgins to Peter Grudzien knows the name of the legendary bard Ed Askew. His 1968 ESP Record ''Ask the Unicorn'' is one of the era's finest artifacts, full of lilting, prickly, chiming songs of loss, love & escapism - maybe the gay ''Astral Weeks'' for the underground. Released only on cassette in miniscule quantities in 1984, but now available for the first time on LP, ''Imperfiction'' contains the same emotionally raw yet wry observations, in a decidedly no-frills sonic setting, giving a unique & intimate self-portrait of a truly gifted songwriter. For fans of Daniel Johnson, early Jonathan Richman, Smog, Palace Brothers and other lo-fi troubadours would be wise to snatch up this limited pressing - as all other GZDisk/Drag City titles have sold out early and often.
