Phil Yost -- Bent City (Takoma Records, C-1016 **1967)

One of the more obscure and mysterious releases in the classic Takoma cannon. Out there, Bay Area hippie-improv jazz canoodlings. Woodwind, bass and echo-driven. All instruments played by Mr. Yost. Biographically, I've found next to nothing about him, online. 320 Vinyl rip by yours truly. Big thanks to D.

Out there, indeed! Thank you, Nick. If tonight's anything like last night (heat & hail, massive rains, tornado warnings, etc..), this will be a perfect soundtrack.

Not really what I would expect from Takoma, but really interesting nontheless. Thanks for the chance to hear it.

Just found this blog! Awesome!

I found it searching for the Pyx OST, is there any chance you would re-up that one for me? Would love to have it@

Many thanks! More proof you can't go wrong with Takoma. This kind of reminds me of a more psychedelic Third Ear Band. Now why won't Fantasy or whoever owns the rights to the Takoma catalogue make all these recordings available?

Thanks. His 2nd LP is apparently even more interesting - "Fog-hat Ramble".
