Item ID: 528456

During the late 1940s, enigmatic proto-hippie Eden Ahbez lived off the grid beneath the Hollywood sign, fuelled by a raw food diet and dreams of a far-off paradise, scraping a living by writing songs like 'Nature Boy' for Nat King Cole. Sole LP Eden's Island is a one-off exotica wonder from 1960 that puts us in Ahbez's dreamy headspace through innovative sound design that fills in the blanks of his seascape, the vibraphones and piano capped by drifting choruses and Ahbez's disjointed spoken words. Definitely ahead of its time and apart from the later works by Martin Denny and Arthur Lyman, this is a must for all exotica fans.

Also available: EDEN'S ISLAND (2CD) (CD), EDEN'S ISLAND (2LP/BLACK) (LP), EDEN'S ISLAND (2LP/SPLATTER/WOODEN COVER) (LP), EDEN'S ISLAND (2LP/WOODEN BOX) (LP), EDEN'S ISLAND (2LP/YELLOW/GREEN) (LP), EDEN'S ISLAND (IT) (LP), EDEN'S ISLAND (SP) (LP).
