Barcode: 0825764119924

Catalog no.: NUMCD0000199

Item ID: 461581

The first authoritative compilation of American dream pop artist Happy Rhodes, whose singular songwriting and four-octave vocal range emanated from the pastoral confines of upstate New York in the 1980s. Her melding of classical music influences with synthesizer and acoustic guitar, and her enchanting and idiosyncratic singing, are favorably compared to heralded English chanteuse Kate Bush. 'Ectotrophia' gathers essential songs from Rhodes's mid-'80s salad days, many written when she was just a teenager, wildly ahead of her time and unafraid to bare her soul to regional audiences, the ectophiles who'd eventually coin an entire subgenre of pop music in her honor.

Also available: ECTOTROPHIA (2LP) (LP).

WEE - YOU CAN FLY ON MY AEROPLANE

WEE - YOU CAN FLY ON MY AEROPLANE

This '70s LP, recorded in Columbus, Ohio and featuring one Norman Whiteside, is a genuine undergroud soul cult classic, financed by the world of street prostitution(!). The remarkably well performed music is firmly ensconced in 'Innervisions'-era Stevie Wonder, with nary a ... read more »
