"Human Voices" reissue released by Guerssen Records


Human voices

Format. CD

Description. Watch out for this rarity. You know the Tree People, late 70s predecessors of the ongoing new folk movement in the USA. You know their 1979 debut album and you know it's a masterpiece….. but oh well, did you know about their second album??? Surely not, especially because it was a cassette only release at the time with a very short print.

Luckily enough, the Tree People guys kept the mastertapes of these recordings and we're proud to be making this wonderful music available now. Vinyl version will come later, here's the CD with splendid sound quality. The music here is equally as good, if not better, than the self- titled debut and a real must for any folk and psych- folk lover. Acoustic guitars, subtile percussions, wonderful flute work and some warm vocals, but overall a real big dose of quality and originality that makes the Tree People music be absolutely ahead of its time and therefore so much admired today. A real beauty!
The CD comes with a booklet including liners by the band's leader Stephen Cohen, as well as some pictures.
