Reissue of Beverly Glenn Copeland’s outstanding - and very rare, dare I say lost - 1970 debut… a rarified, sprawling folk-jazz opus, swinging, textured, and beautifully orchestrated. Hesitate to call something this serious and emotionally committed PSYCHEDELIC, but it certainly has a timeless hallucinatory power. With its tone of who-am-I enquiry and its mystic swirls of strings and reeds, there are shades of Terrys Callier and Reid, a little bit of Joni, and especially Astral Weeks....But ultimately in its spiritual intensity - and Bev’s high vocals, which turn on a sixpence from soft confessional to torrid, quasi-operatic high-wire-act - it's most reminiscent of Tim Buckley in full star-sail mode. Copeland is best known these days for Keyboard Fantasias, his visionary 1986 LP of proto-Detroit techno DX7/707 experiments (recently revived by Invisible City Editions) but this is a whole other trip. Can't believe this isn't canon (yet). A must.
