You're A Very Lovely WomanAmong folk-rock devotees and power-pop cultists, Emitt Rhodes is a legendary figure with a powerful mystique. The prodigiously talented singer/songwriter/multi-instrumentalist first came to prominence as the teenaged leader of The Merry-Go-Round, a unique L.A. baroque folk-rock quartet whose lone 1967 album is now regarded as being in the same class as the debut discs of such 60s contemporaries as the Byrds, Love, the Left Banke and the Buffalo Springfield.
The Merry-Go-Roundwhich also included guitarist Gary Kato, ex-Leaves bassist Bill Rinehart and former Grass Roots drummer Joel Larsonscored an early hit with the infectiously jangly Live. The song (which would be covered in the 80s by the Bangles) became a major regional hit in the Los Angeles area. Lives equally distinctive B-side, Time Will Show the Wiser, was covered the following year by Fairport Convention. The bands second single, the bittersweet, orchestrated Youre a Very Lovely Woman, was an equally impressive achievement.
Those three songs are all featured on Youre a Very Lovely Woman, which offers a consistently intoxicating mix of Beatlesque vocal harmonies, ringing folk-rock guitars, sparkling songcraft and playful baroque and psychedelic touches.
Although The Merry-Go-Round would disband two years after releasing their only LP, the album has gained steadily in notoriety and prestige over the years. Original copies of the album have become rare collectors items, regularly changing hands for exorbitant prices among fans.
Now, Youre a Very Lovely Woman is once again available on vinyl to thrill longtime admirers and new fans alike. Mastered from the original analog tapes and pressed on high-quality high-definition vinyl, the album includes complete, meticulously reproduced original cover art.1. Live

Hoi' PolloiRemastered Limited Edition Reissue
Only 500 Copies Pressed
Family Vineyard and Folk Evaluation proudly present the first authorized LP reissue of Richmond, Indiana's fabled Hoi' Polloi. The band's lone 1972 self-titled
album, recorded over spring break at Earlham College by means of bouncing
between two stereo tape decks, is a fantastic collection of country twangers,
breathtaking singer-songwriter material, and bizarre tape cut-ups. With five songwriters in the band, what could have felt like another grab-bag student compilation instead feels like lost tapes of Emitt Rhodes hanging with Crosby, Stills, Nash
and Young while Faust producer Uwe Nettlebeck makes a guest appearance in the
Remastered from the original ¼" tapes, this deluxe vinyl edition comes jampacked with extras: Extensive liner notes featuring Patrick 'The Lama' Lundborg's

Calling OutIt wouldn't be entirely accurate to say that EZTV met while trying out for J. Spaceman's
latest US touring line-up of Spiritualized, but it's not far from the truth.
Songwriter and audio engineer Ezra Tenenbaum had been casually working
on solo home recordings on his Tascam 8-Track in the vein of Shoes, Emitt
Rhodes and Cleaners For Venus, and, in a desire to round out the songs, he
enlisted bassist Shane O'Connell and drummer Michael Stasiak (formerly of
Widowspeak). As it happened, the trio's first chance to play together was an
audition for the American touring version of Spiritualized (they didn't get the job).
But, the trio kept meeting and working, turning Ezra recording as a solo artist
into Ezra, Shane and Michael playing as a band; thus, EZTV was formed.
With a pool of over 30 demos to work with and Jarvis Taveniere of Woods
onboard to produce, the band headed to Thump Studios in Greenpoint,
Brooklyn, to record their debut LP for Captured Tracks. The result is Calling
Out, a cohesive 12-song statement in the long tradition of fully realized debuts,
stripped of artifice, but full of hooks and songwriting chops. Tracks like
first single "The Light," premiering today via The FADER, exhibit what you would
call the EZTV mantra: presenting songs with only the required embellishments.
They've got one foot firmly planted in classic American power-pop and college
rock while the other utilizes more left-of-the-dial sonic experimentation.
The result is a sound that's both familiar and new, but always about the songs.
In an era of independent music with a lot more emphasis placed on "story" and
meaningless twitter feuds, EZTV present a record that speaks for itself. It's an
LP made for an audience that doesn't want or need any kind of angle or controversy,
but desires songs that resonate and have a lasting appeal, something
available here in spades.1. Bury Your Heart
