Slippery When Wet (CD)
Out-Sider present the first ever reissue Hasting's Street Opera's Slippery When Wet, a US private pressing from 1969 unknown until now. Underground, psychedelic, electric jazz-rock/improv sound with mellow folk-rock moves and homemade/basement atmosphere. Mostly instrumental with some cut-up vocal sounds and effects. A mix of self-penned songs and amazing cover versions of classics like "Summertime", "Scarborough Fair", or "A Taste Of Honey" turned into hip, extended jams not so far away from the sound of the pioneering psychedelic ballroom bands from San Francisco. Electric and acoustic guitars, bass, drums, flute... Recommended if you like similar private psych-jazz obscurities like Elysian Spring. Named after an old Detroit blues LP, Hasting's Street Opera was formed in Montclair, New Jersey by a group of young friends (Harry Wellott, Gordon Carlisle, Don Hathaway, and Chris Nelson) influenced by blues, rock, jazz, and the eclectic sounds emanating from freeform/underground FM radio stations: Blues Project, Butterfield Blues Band, Miles Davies, Pharaoh Sanders, Jethro Tull... Initially born as a blues band, HSO eventually evolved into a true improvisation collective unit. Slippery When Wet was recorded in 1969 at Don's house using a portable recorder operated by their math teacher, the famous old-time music preserver Charles Faurot. It was a vanity pressing of less than 100 copies, housed in hand-made covers which were distributed among friends and family. For this, the first ever reissue, original band member and visual artist Gordon Carlisle has designed a new vintage-styled cover based on old photos of the band.
