Out Now: Expanded Edition of Damon’s Psychedelic Masterpiece “Song of a Gypsy”

Now-Again | Oct. 21, 2013 | News | , ,

Available NOW! Restored/remastered transfer, pitch/speed corrected for the first time ever. First edition contains second CD/bonus LP: Damon’s ’60s recordings, and never-before-heard demos. Extensive booklet contains dozens of unpublished photos and images, a thorough investigation into this landmark album, and an extensive interview with Damon.

Damon’s Song Of A Gypsy is generally regarded as one of the finest privately-pressed psychedelic rock records and has, for over twenty years, been one of the most sought after late 60s American rock artifacts. Bad bootlegs and scrappy reissues have spread his music, but left Damon’s story untouched, leaving Song of a Gypsy high on its own plateau: out of reach and indescribable.

Finally, Damon’s story can be told. Under the supervision of Now-Again’s Egon and Damon himself, and over a five year period, Song Of A Gypsy has been researched and documented, and has now been pitch-corrected and remastered. It now sees what we’d like to call its definitive issue as a 2CD and limited edition deluxe 2LP.

This edition investigates a seemingly impossible story – one that encapsulates the last bloom of the flower power movement before it decayed into the haze of the 70s underground. It traces a pop hopeful descending into chaos, and becoming the tortured soul who would create an LP to file alongside works by other lost greats of the late ‘60s, from Shuggie Otis to Rodriguez.
