Robbie The Werewolf - At The Waleback LP
Out-Sider Records present the first ever vinyl reissue of Robbie The Werewolf's At The Waleback, originally released in 1964. With his long red hair and matching beard, Robbie The Werewolf - a folksinger of the frantic variety with a fetish for monsters - was a striking performer with a manic stage presence, acting out his songs as much as singing them. His set consisted of his original songs and uniquely reworked versions of folk standards, played on a beat-up twelve-string guitar. This inspired some of the most bizarre songs ever committed to vinyl: listen to "Count Dracula" and its proto-psychedelic, amazing echo effects or the insane DIY rocker "Rockin' Werewolf". It was at The Wale Back in L.A one heady night in 1964, that Robbie's solo act was captured for posterity and released as a tiny private pressing. A few years later, Robbie Robison would become a founding member of L.A psychedelic band Clear Light. But that's another story. This incredibly strange music is championed by lovers of the wonderful & weird such as Jello Biafra. At The Waleback is a time capsule to the post-beatnik, pre-psychedelic/hippie scene from L.A. Includes insert with detailed liner notes by Gray Newell (Ugly Things) and Alan Brackett (Peanut Butter Conspiracy). "This obscenely rare disc stars Robbie Robison plucking an acoustic guitar and singing kooky tunes about Halloween characters, sex, drinking and drugs that were quite radical for its day." -- Beverly Paterson (It's Psychedelic Baby). LP housed in an old-school style tip-on sleeve.
