Suddenly One Summer


Jay Kaye was 15 years old when he wrote and recorded this album in 1968 - he was from Las Vegas and made the trip to Vancouver to record ths album with local session musicians (most notably members of Mother Tucker's Yellow Duck). The arranger (Robert Buckley) was also in his teens - the album hangs together really well and the production and recording quality is outstanding. The track linked below (Fly) is a fine slice of dreamy psychedelia - put on the headphones and ponder that Thom Yorke was born the year these crazy teenagers recorded this LP.
