973: Connecticut native Gary Higgins and his friends record RED HASH and release it on Gary’s 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 Gary’s 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, let’s not wait another minute, we might forget again…
2021: Whaddya mean it’s been literal years since we’ve had copies of RED HASH for sale? Oh yeah, whoops — you're right. Spaced it! Okay, here’s more vinyl, complete with the tip-on sleeve, lyric insert and 7" single featuring the CD bonus tracks “Don't Ya Know” and “Last Great Sperm Whale.”
This is your chance to score a letter-perfect reproduction of the early 70s acid-folk classic as it was reissued WAY back in the early 20-somethings! Don't blow it, dude.
