Eden Ahbez - Wild Boy: The Lost Songs Of Eden Ahbez
By now psychedelic music is a mainstay of popular taste. But questions of its origins still linger. As such, Bear Family Records now submits 'Wild Boy: The Lost Songs of Eden Ahbez' as fresh evidence in the quest for answers. Over the past twenty years Eden Ahbez has gone from cult figure to harbinger of the Sixties flower-power movement. This notion is born out largely by his 1948 anthem of universal love, Nature Boy, and his rare solo album from 1960, titled 'Eden's Island'‰ÛÓone of popular music's earliest concept albums. 'Wild Boy: The Lost Songs Of Eden Ahbez' both expands the Eden Ahbez catalog and deepens the notion of a psychedelic movement having roots in the 1950s. Side-one acts as a compilation of music that Ahbez wrote in the aftermath of Nature Boy.
