Most recent converts to the world of Ned Doheny discovered his genius via Hard Candy or Prone. Our introduction was by way of "Postcards From Hollywood", a cult song from his stunning, self-titled debut album. Beautifully poignant, it can only be found on said LP. And whilst his later albums are rightly revered, "Postcards" - and the 9 additional tracks that comprise this exceptional opening statement - represent a criminally overlooked gem. Original vinyl copies of this album are extremely rare - and correspondingly expensive - so we're thrilled to present the first ever vinyl reissue of a true lost classic.
Of everything he recorded, we know this LP to be Ned's favourite. An intoxicating brew of acoustical jazz-rock, folk and country-rock - delivered in Ned's supremely laid back West Coast style - it features gorgeous melodic lines throughout, complimented by his distinctly funky overtones and tightly-coordinated instrumental textures. With albums as perfect as this, it is routinely tricky to identify standout tracks. However, rivalling the heartbreaking "Postcards" is the phenomenally propulsive "Lashambeaux", strident opener "Fineline" and "On And On", featuring the harmony vocals of Graham Nash.
When a beginners guide to Ned surfaced last year, he and many others were surprised by the startling number of omissions from his best album. You can now enjoy the fleshed out, non-demo versions of these wonderful originals.
