Album Description

Released:2007-11-02
GENRES:
Host: Rob Hatch-Miller
Engineer: Rob Hatch-Miller
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)
