Children Of One’s sole album was release towards the end of the ‘60s. A very rare and rather obscure psych-rock delice for avid fans, it’s heavily influenced by the so-called Eastern trend.This quartet from New York picked several typical indian instruments like sitar, tablas and others.Improvisation is largely present in their songs and overall the felling is that of a really forgotten gem that ranks up there with the best productions of that era.Richly packaged in the new Akarma DeLuxe line with stunning quality re-mastering
Fort Mudge Memorial Dump was a band from Walpole, Massachusetts, that started playing by 1969, gathering a good number of fans. They got filed into the 'Boston Sound', among the Ultimate Spinach, the Beacon Street Union, Orpheus, Tangerine Zoo, ecc. With good technique and better ideas, they recorded a very sought-after LP in which the voice of Caroline Stratton stands out to some Jefferson Airplane affinity. Guitarist Dean Keady, with his jazzy effects, leads the band. This is a very much anticipated release and a sure buy for all collectors.

Ed Askew - Little Eyes. CD. (Label: DE STIJL, Cat.No: IND032CD)
An interesting, and undoubtedly unconscious, competition has cropped up amongst indie record labels over the last five years or so. With the success of the re-releases of long lost albums by artists like Vashti Bunyan and Sibylle Baier, a number of labels have been shaking trees and digging beneath porches to try to find the rarest works to slip into the tea of the record buying public. As you might expect, the smaller the label, the more interesting the music they seem to dig up. Case in point: De Stijl Records giving the world their first chance to hear the second album by the psych folk wonder, Ed Askew. The tiny New York label has been plying hungry listeners with obscure gems by the likes of Michael Yonkers and the Black Vial, but they scored their biggest coup yet by allowing this record to see the light of day, 30 years after it was first recorded.At the time the album was recorded, Askew was signed to the venerable ESP label, the imprint that had released his brilliant work Ask the Unicorn. He recorded this album not long after the release of that album in 1969, but the label ran out of money and couldn't put it out. Luckily, it couldn't be abetter time for Askew's work to be reexamined by the intelligentsia of the music world
