Windy: A Ruthann Friedman Songbook - Ruthann Friedman

Windy: A Ruthann Friedman Songbook
RECORDINGS FROM 1966-1970
FROM THE ORIGINAL MASTER TAPES!
ALL TRACKS FIRST TIME EVER RELEASED!
Having written The Association’s ‘Windy’ while living in David Crosby’s basement, RUTHANN FRIEDMAN remained an intriguing and mysterious figure of ‘60s pop for decades. Until recently her released output consisted of a lone folk album issued in 1970. Unbelievably, many fascinating recordings she created with some of the most revered names in West Coast pop have remained locked away in the vaults… until NOW!
Featuring productions by CURT BOETTCHER, TOMMY LiPUMA, and VAN DYKE PARKS, Windy: A Ruthann Friedman Songbook contains 18 tracks from 1966-1970, focusing on Ruthann’s pop/rock efforts from this era. Musicians include RANDY NEWMAN, RON ELLIOTT of The Beau Brummels, and RUSS GIGUERE from The Association! One listen to this CD and you’ll wonder why Ruthann didn’t have more hits of the magnitude of "Windy.”
Mastered by Alan Brownstein FROM THE ORIGINAL MASTER TAPES!

The full-colour booklet includes rare photos and extensive liner notes featuring the participation of Ruthann herself!

Voice
Edda Dell'Orso is the sound of Italian cinema. Her astonishing voice recognisable to anyone who has experienced the landmark spaghetti western films made by Sergio Leone; films that were in the mid sixties scored by a young whippersnapper called Ennio Morricone. The recent revival of interest in mid-century post-modern art and the restoration of so many wonderful Morriconne scores has led many to discover Edda Dell'Orso. Her work is the epitome of intelligence and sophistication. It is utopian in its scope and its potential is vast.

Waterbeds In Trinidad
Hey, everybody loves The Association! "Along Comes Mary", "Windy", "Never My Love", "Cherish". Their lush harmonic pop provided an alternative soundtrack to the late '60s and their string of nine Warner Brothers albums between 1966 and 1971 represent a body of work unsurpassed by their peers. It might be surprising to discover, therefore, that as late as 1972 they were still making top quality music, albeit for a new label, Columbia. Their version of "Darling Be Home Soon" may have failed to crack the US charts after a run of 12 hit singles but it's probably the best Lovin' Spoonful cover of them all (and that's saying something!). The accompanying album, Waterbeds In Trinidad, was the last long-player cut by the original group and has an undeniable elegiac quality to it. They tackle John Stewart's "Little Road And A Stone To Roll" and Goffin & King's "Snow Queen" alongside the usual array of original compositions, mostly composed by returning prodigal son and founder member Jules Alexander. An overlooked jewel in the Association's crown, it's about time this album was recognised by a wider audience overlooked gem from these archetypal Californian soft pop legends! Rmastered from the master tapes in the usual breath-taking Rev-Ola style! rand new liner notes by soft pop queen Dawn Eden!

Winds Of Change
In these more cynical times, it is easy to see this seminal album in a somewhat ambivalent light...everybody's favourite Geordie hell-raiser, Eric Burdon caught on the cusp between being Britain's Blues-meister supreme and being Hitler out of the producers?! Yet there is so much more here, two international hit singles, garage blues and psychedelic jams to match anyone. Produced by bizarrely unsung dylan/zappa/velvets producer tom wilson. This is as amazing a forgotten gem as the 2 albums them made on tower around the same time! Our Price: £9.95

The 16-page, full-colour booklet includes rare, unpublished photos and extensive liner notes featuring the participation of original band members. Sourced From The Original Master Tapes!
