Ed Askew recordings – A Child In the Sun: Radio Sessions 1969-70 

Ed Askew is right up there on the Astral folk chart of the late ’60s alongside the likes of Michael Hurley and the Incredible String Band. Like Hurley, he’s still very active with his latest album, Art and Life, was released only this year on Tin Angel. The appetite for psychedelic folk is still very strong, so much so that in 2015 Tin Angel remastered and re-issued Ed Askew’s most well-known album – Ask the Unicorn, originally released in 1968 on the New York-based record company ESP-Disk run by lawyer and folk-maverick Bernard Stollman. Some find it odd that such an album released nearly 50 years ago should find such resonance with an audience today…whatever the reasons, we should be thankful that there are labels out there prepared to put the time, effort and money behind such releases which deserve to reach a much wider audience [ . . . ]
