"GARY HIGGINS is back from the time-space continuum with previously unheard moments from his storied past. Way back in 2005, Drag City reintroduced his 1974 psych-folk classic Red Hash to listeners around the world, who were acutely touched by Garys carefully-arranged, darkly utopian songs. Since then, Red Hash has been widely recognized as a classic of its time. Since then, Gary has played shows around the U.S., something that he was unable to do in the mid-70s when Red Hash came out, due to incarceration on trumped-up drug possession charges. It was a good feeling, playing his songs for people who were moved by them, so Gary decided to record some new ones, and in 2009,his first new recordings in over thirty years were issued as the album Seconds. His sound was neither revisited nor updated; natural evolution had occurred and the songs were unmistakably Gary Higgins; older, and different, yet unchanged. Fresh from his trip to the present, Gary is back in the past for this EP of songs, all of which were written and recorded circa 70-71, in the same time that the songs that would form Red Hash took shape." -Drag City

Artist: HIGGINS, GARY
Title: Red Hash
Format: CD
Label: Drag City
Country: USA
Price: $14.00
First reissue of this underground folk-psych classic, originally released in 1973 as a self-released LP. " Red Hash features eleven haunting tracks of folk-pop played on acoustic and electric guitar and arranged with percussion, cello, flute, piano, organ, bass and mandolin. This plus Garys transcendent vocals bring to mind the perfectly-damaged vibes found in David Crosbys masterpiece of peace, love and paranoia, If I Could Only Remember My Name and the recently re-discovered and acclaimed Parallelograms by Linda Perhacs. This is the first-ever authorized reissue of Red Hash -- direct from the original master tapes. The Red Hash CD includes two unheard bonus cuts and never before seen artwork/photos. Red Hash is held in very high regard by current torch-bearers/taste-makers: Animal Collective, Joanna Newsom, WFMU, Devendra Banhart, Ben Chasny, Sunburned Hand of the Man, White Magic, and Espers." - Drag City.

Title: Red Hash
Format: LP + 7"
Label: Drag City
Country: USA
Price: $20.00
"1973: Connecticut native Gary Higgins and his friends record Red Hash and release it on Garys own Nufusmoon Records. Following the release, legal issues halt all promotion and sales, rendering the small pressing of Red Hash a hotly-rumored and much sought-after lost album of rock and roll lore. 2005: Drag City is honored to present the first-ever authorized reissue of Gary Higgins acid-folk gem Red Hash -- mastered from the original master tapes with two previously unheard bonus tracks. The reviews are glowing: the haunting sound of Garys meticulously arranged folk-pop is a sound that everyone can relate to, and Red Hash makes many year-end lists around the world as Top Reissue. 2007: What do you mean, we forgot to make a vinyl version of Red Hash in 2005? Really? Well, lets not wait another minute, we might forget again... And so, after thirty-five years, Red Hash vinyl is back in stock, with a limited-edition LP that includes a 7" single featuring the first-ever vinyl pressing of the CD bonus songs Dont Ya Know and Last Great Sperm Whale. This is your chance to grab at a letter-perfect reproduction of a folk-rock classic from the early 1970s. Dont space it -- score yourself a copy of Red Hash."-Drag City
