Barcode: 2090503432628

Catalog no.: MR0000070

Item ID: 343262

Reissue of this classic from 2010. On this LP we find Hurley stretching out on six longer than usual compositions that are heartbreaking and beautiful as anything he's ever done. Side one features Hurley on a creaky pump organ. Side two starts out with two newer compositions - just Michael on guitar and vocals. The record ends with a stunning version of 'Tea Song' (which Michael originally wrote and recorded way back in 1963). A sustained feeling of loss and need for redemption haunts this record.
