First CD issue of this unreleased 2nd album, recorded in 1970. This was the intended follow-up to Ed's classic ESP-disk album, Ask the Unicorn from 1969. This CD adds 6 bonus tracks from radio sessions, 1970-71. Wow. "Ed Askew recorded Little Eyes in one continuous take during a brief, hot, hetero moment, 1970, New York City. Thirty-two years later, Destijl released it on LP. Made with little more than magnetic tape, Ed's voice, and the stunningly modern arrangements of his beloved Martin Tiple, Little Eyes is as grand, sad and beautiful a statement as can be expressed. His off-key lilt hangs like a seductive pink mist and settles deeply; you'll hear these songs long after they are over. Attempting to publicize an unreleased record, Ed did a string of radio gigs between New York and New Haven, and the best of them are collected here. Lovely and wild, this one is very near and dear to our hearts. Soon, yours too."
