Though she's best-known for her prominent role in the folk boom that swept America in the early 1960s (appearing on the cover of The Saturday Evening Post in 1964), as well as her involvement with Bob Dylan, Carolyn Hester also recorded two superb albums of fuzzy, sweet-voiced, psychedelic folk-rock in 1969, along with her band, The Coalition. Despite her early associations with traditional folk in the vein of Joan Baez, Hester forged her own pathways, turning down a slot with Peter Yarrow and Paul Stookey, collaborating with Bill Lee and Bruce Langhorne, and eventually trying her hand at forming her own folk-tinged psych band. Sunbeam is delighted to announce the first of two long-awaited, authorized reissues, produced with Carolyn's full participation. Complete with a booklet detailing the band's history and also including rare photographs, this reissue is sure to appeal to all fans of high-class U.S. psychedelia.
