Recorded on July 14-15, 1975. Includes original release and reissue liner notes by Peter Stampfel.
Three days in the studio in 1975 resulted in this staggeringly good 1976 release. The recording brought together an overlapping array of players, who'd had, variously, histories of performing together or playing each other's songs. Michael Hurley brought along his "Sweet Lucy, "Fooey Fooey," "Driving Wheel" and the immortal "Slurf Song." Peter Stampfel, founder of the Holy Modal Rounders (here listed as UNholy due to the absence of co-founder Steve Weber) opens the set up with his version of "Midnight In Paris."
He also does a couple wonderful new songs by Antonia, including "Griselda," which was later covered by Yo La Tengo (on their FAKEBOOK album). This is a great introduction to any of the above mentioned artists. HAVE MOICY is that rare album which captures the gleeful camaraderie of like-minded musicians having a once-in-a-lifetime weekend. It's one of the finest albums of its decade, and is just as compelling now as it was then. Good music like this never grows old.
