descriptions, reviews, &c.

"When MIJ, aka Jim Holmberg was found by ESP-Disk’s Bernard Stollman, yodeling by the fountain in Washington Square Park, on a hot, summer Sunday afternoon in 1969, he explained that an auto accident had fractured his skull and impaired his hearing. But it had also altered his perceptions and enabled him to do things that he did not understand, but which worked musically. The next day ESP-Disk' sent him into the studio to record Yodeling Astrologer. With Onno Scholtze's help, MIJ explored the possibilities of multiple reverb to provide a series of echoes for his yodeling. When the project was completed, both participants continued to reverberate. They may be reverberating still. An original freak folk classic."-ESP
