There aren't many records as magical, as transcendent and as deserving of rediscovery as this one. It's songs conjure a perfect lost America, populated by teenage California dreamers in suede fringe jackets, Chris Hillman haircuts, jeans and Jack Purcell's, strawberry blondes in powder blue Beetles and Arizona highways stretching toward endless summer dawns. Through a peculiar set of circumstances (most far beyond the control of their creators), these recordings have come to bewitch rare groove hunters, soft rock diggers and collectors of folk and Americana to a sweet madness, but they've never had what would be called an "official" release before this issue. "Daybreak" has attained "holy grail" status, it's associations with Left Banke producer Harry Lookofsky and his friend, the Brazilian genius of arranging, Deodato, being the icing on the cake! a collection of genius songs, all but lost. This is the album's first official release on CD!
