Description

In the late '60s, amidst ubiquitous national protest over the Vietnam War and racial injustice, a high school rock band – comprised of both black and white musicians – took the stage and became the voice of a generation for their small Midwest town of Marion, OH. Originally released as a limited pressing in 1970, ERIC's only studio album stands out as a totally unique sonic experience. While recorded on 4-track tape with sparse instrumentation, it still manages to sound ornate –  a cosmic and echoing expression of youthful passion propelled by the precocious songwriting and guitar talent of frontman Willie Creagh (aka Willie Phoenix) who, to this day, continues to perform to crowds of dedicated local fans. Considered one of the rarest and most sought-after private press records among serious collectors, original copies have sold for as much as $1,500. Newly re-mastered from a mint copy of the original LP, it is now available for all to hear – nearly half a century after its initial release.

Features:
• First-ever vinyl re-issue
• Re-mastered from original LP
• 180-gram vinyl housed in a Stoughton tip-on gatefold jacket
• Featuring liner notes by songwriter Willie Creagh + song lyrics
• Re-designed cover art reflective of artist's original intentions
• Digital download card included
