Phil Yost - Bent City
Notes

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.

    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”.
