Release Date:10/29/2013;Notes:Limited triple vinyl LP pressing housed in a slipcase with three tip on jackets, 20 page book, and digital download. Forget everything you know, or think you know, about new age, a genre that has become one of the defining musical archaeological explorations of the past decade. I Am the Center: Private Issue New Age in America, 1950-1990 is the first major anthology to survey the golden age of new age and reveal the unbelievable truth about the genre. For new age, at it's best, is a reverberation of psychedelic music, and great by any standard. This is analog, handmade music communicating soul and spirit, often done on limited means and without commercial potential, self-published and self-distributed. Before it became big business and devolved into the spaced out elevator music we know and loathe today, this was the real thing. From mathematical musical algorithms to airport murder mysteries to Henry Mancini and Bugs Bunny, the connections to mainstream culture run in curious directions. I Am the Center is a knowing, but never cynical overview that invites listeners at last to the mainspring of a misunderstood genre's greatest lights.;Track List:1.
