Photos: One Step Closer To Our Heitkotter Reissue

Late last year, we announced that we were working on an expanded issue of Stephen David Heitkotter’s legendary album, known colloquially as Heitkotter. And we mentioned that we were “hot on the heels” of some unreleased material from the sessions – held at Heitkotter’s Old Fresno craftsman circa 1971. Well, the drummer on the album and those sessions – Ross Dwelle – found the two reels that he recorded with Heitkotter prior to the album’s creation, he traveled down to L.A. with the tapes, and we transferred them at History of Recorded Sound. Andrew Gura was there to document the proceedings. More news coming soon.

    I purchased a copy for myself I saw the video on the album of Heitkotter and decided to hunt the record down and get it. The history is so amazing on this guy kinda reminds me of the Donny Hathaway story but Donny’s ended in tragedy. It has always been said people who are quote unquote genius aren’t far from being insane. Would like to know more about Stephen but thee is not a lot on the internet about his life. Kinda sad someone with such potential and talent more info can’t be provided on him. Dude is a legend!
