Lab Overview

"The ultimate reissue of one of the world’s most important albums in the field of Exotica, Jazz and even Proto Psychedelic Music from 1960 – and the first official reissue ever! This reissue of Eden Ahbez’ sole album includes 20 almost unreleased bonus songs from different sessions. Carefully restored and remastered from original master tapes by prolific grammy-nominated sound engineer Jessica Thompson. The artist Eden Ahbez was not only a skilled composer and performer who wrote the hit tune 'Nature boy' for the classic 1940s crooner Nat King Cole but also a forefather and probably the sole inventor of the hippie lifestyle that became a world wide movement by the mid 1960s. Indeed we find many trademarks of the prototypical exotica music beginning with this relaxed groove combining easy listening swing and Latin patterns, peaceful, dreamy and even transcendental vocal melodies, tinges of folk music from around the world including powerful dances and a whole color palette of mind-expanding sounds giving the whole music an even greater depth and width. The latter being created entirely with real instruments such as Eden Ahbez’ wood-flute. Some tunes are rather gentle and relaxed with the lyrics being narrated, which adds much to the epic feel of the album. Since this is a really unique effort, now 'Eden’s Island' alone is a masterpiece of proto psychedelic music and showcases the peak of Ahbe’s creativity." - Everland Psych
