After languishing in obscurity for decades, the music of idiosyncratic
singer-songwriter Ed Askew is finally getting the attention it
deserves. Ask The Unicorn, his 1968 debut album for ESP-Disk,
has often been compared to the work of labelmates Pearls Before Swine.
Askew's equally wonderful second album, Little Eyes, was
recorded a few years later but remained unreleased until the De Stijl
label pressed a limited edition LP in 2003. This year, they finally
made it available on CD. Although Askew once accompanied himself on a
kind of Latin American soprano guitar called a tiple, carpal tunnel
syndrome now prevents him from playing. For this live session,
contemporary psychedelic folk artist Joshua Burkett plays the
instrument for him. -Hatch (WFMU Playlist/Archive)
