Ed Askew's 1968 album Ask the Unicorn stands right up with the Pearls and Fugs albums as a shining display of acid folk - but with the use of his chosen instrument, the tiple, and his plaintive vocals, it achieves a legendary aspect all of its own! For many years, this was the only Askew anyone who cared to know could find - but Ed kept singing and playing, self-releasing music in the 80s and 90s, and eventually labels like de Stijl and Tin Angel - and Galactic Zoo Disk! came around. Drag City assisted GZD in reissuing Ed's early 80s cassette release Imperfiction, and having loved doing that, they were thrilled when Ed informed GZD about a cache of radio performance tapes from the early days! A Child In the Sun: Radio Sessions 1969-1970 is the document, working over many of his Ask the Unicorn classics, plus adding a new-before-heard tune for good measure. Ed's making really great new music these days, but it can only help to have these vintage recordings from his wild young days in the mix!
