I have 2 Kapp copies, both on the pinky/orange label, both original. However, they have a different hue on the front; one is blue, the other more lilac. Does anyone have any insight into this? Is that enough to warrant a separate listing?

Want to know how this album sounds? Here is Linda Perhacs herself:

"They stripped the sounds from the top, they removed the sounds from the lows and put an AM-band, thin sound — which is more like a telephone, it's a more limited sound — and they took away all the beauty. The sound in that original pressing was wooden. They pressed it and they mixed it for AM radio, and took away the magnificent highs and lows that we had recorded.
It was wooden. It had no depth. When I heard my first vinyl, I threw it in the trash. It bothered me. I said, "I can't listen to this." So for years, all I listened to was my own personal tapes — they had the full dimension of sound. But what they pressed, the only pressing that has ever come out from Universal, is that thin band of sound, without the whole original that Leonard and I had worked so hard to get."

My copy's black label is slightly different : the lettering is smaller than the discogs photo. Plus the credit to Nelson is indicated on both sides of the label! Once I also had a canadian pressing : the Kapp label was all black, no hat!

Which of all these LP versions would you recommend? Is there one you had a problem with? THanks in advance

Is there a release of this that hasn't been pressed badly?

Any idea as to how Oliver Nelson got involved in the composition of "Hey, Who Really Cares?" ?
This song fits Linda so perfecty and I was very surprised to learn that it was co-written with Oliver Nelson, whose musical background is jazz, quite distant from Linda's gentle folk...
Cheers !

I agree with Auggieamms review. I got lucky and came across 4 factory sealed original copies back in the nineties. I opened all to inspect them. I got 1 black and 3 red labels and sold off the other 2 red. They are pristine no marks. I don't notice any sound difference between the labels. This lp was pressed when Kapp was transitioning from black to the new red labels and both are 1st pressings.

As for the music simply one of the best psychedelic female folk records! Beautiful vocals dreamy and haunting straight from Topanga Canyon 1969.

I’m joining this thread very late just for the record. I have a red label original, opened from sealed, and yes, it’s a poor pressing. Quite a lot of crackle, and a pop on the first side that virtually jumps, which can only have come from a pressing fault's profile picture
Hi Linda, THX for this universal AcidFolk jewel... :) ;) :)

I have a red label copy and it sounds just fine. Black label vs red label sounds like artificially trying to create value. Has anyone actually had a red label and black to compare side by side?
