Mohawk, Essra - Essra Mohawk Essra Mohawk
Pop Used - LP 7E 1023 Asylum
Beautiful 1974 White Label Promo. “Essra Mohawk Has Never Recorded For The Same Record Label More Than Once, But It's Rarely Affected The Consistency Of Her Songwriting. Here, She Left Behind The Free-Form, Rambling Qualities Of Her Earlier Work, And, Working Within Slightly More Conventional Rock Confines, Rocked 'N' Rasped Her Own Inimitable Way Through Ten Finely Crafted Psych-Pop Gems, As Well As One Frenetic Take On Gershwin's "Summertime." "New Skins For Old" Starts As The Album Means To Go On: "Can We Doubt When We Don An Old Animal Skin/That It's Really A Previous State We Were In"; Birth, Death, Reincarnation And The Universe Are The Album's Recurrent Themes. Despite Its Muscled-Up Rock Power, The Set Also Captures Mohawk Solo At The Piano For "You're Finally Here" And "I Cannot Forget," Two Warm, Candid Love Ballads. Porgy And Bess Fans May Balk At Her Unusual Treatment Of "Summertime," But Approached Without Prejudice, It's A Fine Tribute. As Usual, Though, It Is The Romantic, Spiritual And Sensual Imagery That Never Fails To Impress. "Openin' My Love Doors" Is A Case In Point — Mohawk Describes A Post-Coital Moment Of Bliss ("We Made Love While The Clouds Cried/Now The Birds Sing As We Lie Side By Side") And Runs With It Throughout The Song. A Great Achievement From Start To End, And Mohawk At Her Vivid And Insightful Best.” Charles Donovan, AMG.... more details
 
Mohawk, Essra - Primordial Lovers Primordial Lovers
Pop Used - LP RS 6377 Reprise
Rare 1970 With Label Promo Housed In A Gatefold Cover With The Rare Lyric Booklet. Appears Unplayed. Small Center Top Seam Split, Hence Price. “Primordial Lovers Is Assured Of Its Status As An Unsung Classic. All Who Hear It, And There Aren't Enough, Are Bewitched By Its Esoteric Poetry, Unguarded Passion, And Great Tunes. No Longer Buried In The Dreadful Production Of Her Sandy Hurvitz Disc, Mohawk Is A Wondrous Creature Of Contrasts: Simultaneously Urbane And Nature-Loving, Knowing And Naïve, All-Powerful Yet Unabashedly Vulnerable At The Same Time. Her Voice Is A Remarkable Instrument — Not The Shrill Piccolo Of Joni Mitchell, Nor The Darker, Mesmerising Recorder Of Laura Nyro, But More A Multi-Range Brass And Woodwind Hybrid Yet To Be Invented. The Songs On Primordial Lovers Do Not Adhere Rigidly To Conventional Ideas Of Song Structure, Which Is Not To Say That They Aren't Catchy — Far From It; They Worm Their Way Into The Subconscious Very Quickly. But, In The Manner Of Early Laura Nyro, Many Of The Compositions Undergo Sudden Changes In Time Signature And Are Subject To Surprising Chord Progressions That Catch The Listener Unaware. Whether Identifying With The Elements ("I Am The Breeze"), Declaring Love ("Lion On The Wing"), Or Cheering Up A Depressed Friend ("Thunder In The Morning," Written For Stephen Stills), Mohawk, Armed Only With A Piano, A Few Players, And Her Own Vast Imagination, Finds Something Worthwhile To Say, And Says It Beautifully. "I Have Been Here Before," The Album's Centerpiece, Is Also Its Most Astonishing Moment — A Swirling, Narcotic, Psychedelic Jazz Creation Powered By A Fuller Horn Section. The Song's Subject Matter — Reincarnation — Is Reflected By Its Own Circular Structure. Primordial Lovers Deserves A Place In The Record Collection Of Every Free-Thinking Soul.” Charles Donovan, AMG.... more details
