Noonan, Levi and Houshmand in East River (USA,1971) by request

From the inclusion in this package:

 Patrick Noonan (acoustic guitar, pedal steel guitar),
 Jonathan Levi (violin),
 John Houshmand (12-string acoustic guitar)

 An original copy of the ultra-rare private press Stoner Folk LP East River by
 New England trio Noonan, Levi and Houshmand (Cavern Custom Recording - no number).
 Long out of print and never released on CD because the master tapes were lost.
 A long lost classic from the dawn of New Age and World Music.
 Much more interesting music than most of what is called New Age.
 The record is best left without any musical label attached to it.
 There's even a version of Gershwin's Summertime.East River - Houshmand

This album was briefly discussed here in connection with their other work and please back refer to that post.
It's really quite beautiful and has that blissfully innocent sincerity that is/was a hallmark of the music of the seventies.  (Sigh)-- we're a long way away from that now, aren't we?

  2. A long long way indeed my brother...Thank you for sharing these beautiful forgotten echoes of a long time sweet...
    brings up old memories of timeless days when you really could escape to follow your bliss and just groove on being or really enjoy the time with good friends...good junctures.
    ...Not quite like the dark dangerous crossroads we find ourselves in today, with the digital Mirkwood broadcast widespread and stale looping playback intruding in even the quietest of moments...
