ED ASKEW
Here We Are Together Again B/W Yellow Dollars

IND 086 7"

This is the last of the vintage, tipple era Askew, before the fingers cramped and began tickling digital ivory. These 2 wondrous cuts would’ve been included on the Little Eyes CD if time were not space. Wonderful live versions, of “Here We Are Together Again” and “Yellow Dollars”, taken from David Porter’s Show on WYBC, Nov 1969. These songs are the topical concern of that or any era (Love and War) and what else is there anyway?

ED ASKEW
Little Eyes
IND 032 CD

Brilliant outsider folk from 1970. Ed Askew cut one record for ESP in 1969 and this was to be his follow-up, but the label ran out of money making this the first release of this material. Little Eyes is even better than his first album. He plays an adapted lute and piano and the whole record was recorded in one take. Quality wise, it ranks right up there with the very best of Pearls Before Swine. Limited pressing. Awesome.
