Gary Higgins matched the intensity of David Crosby's psychedelic folk music with his lonely Red Hash (Nufusmoon 1973 - Drag City, 2005).
Unfortunately, legal trouble kept the album
from being heard for more than 30 years.
The songs, whispered as in a dream, are lulled by a gentle tide of
acoustic guitar, piano, cello, mandolin, flute.
The fact that the least languid and psychedelic song, Down On The Farm,
also sounds less derivative (of David Crosby and the likes) and more avantgarde,
pioneering sounds that were going to emerge one decade later,
was a sign that the times were changing.
Rediscovered two generations later,
Higgins finally released his second album, Seconds (Drag City, 2009).
