Recorded by Charlie Brooks in the late 1990's and pressed in a 3-LP edition of 200. Apparently, he kept them under his bed until a chance meeting with the Mississippi Records guys, who agreed to distribute 160 copies for Record Store Day. Mississippi plans to press a single-LP version of this release; it should be available from our friend Adam next week.

Our friends at Monsters & Dust posted this mysterious Ed Askew song a while back. Little is known about Askew; he's from Connecticut, bummed around the NY folk scene in the late 60's, played a 10-string Martin tiple, and recorded two LPs for the legendary ESP-Disk label (only one of which saw proper release). Anyway, here's the song. If anyone out there's got any info (the title would be a great place to start), we'd love to have it.
Download it here.
