Benny Yurco - You Are My Dreams LP PIAPTK - 296
INTL CUSTOMERS BEWARE: International post is taking insanely long and is very unreliable, so buy at your own risk!
Benny Yurco is a guy I've heard about for a LONG time. My partner in Soild Gold, Dimitri, always wanted to do a SG with him, he's good buds with Dr Dog, I heard many stories about him while I was on tour with Michael Nau in Europe, and even met him once in Joshua Tree while he was recording with Nau, McMicken, Kaufman, and Sabatino for the album that became Less Ready To Go.
Benny recorded the basic tracks for You Are My Dreams in one day and then sent it out to Nau, Kauffman, and Graeme Gibson (Nau, Fruit Bats, etc) to do some overdubs and fill it out, and had Scott McMicken and LeeAnn Cornelius from Acorn Bcorn do the art for it.
Now it is available in a ltd edition of 200 pressed LPs on "Blue Dream" and "Flor Amarilla" (100 copies each) vinyl, randomly inserted!
All orders in the first week receive a free pack of Benny Yurco rolling papers!
"You Are My Dreams" is an experimental, improvisational, alternative world album of instinctual free thought, spirit guided, melodic & rhythmic intuition, written & recorded by composer/multi-instrumentalist/producer, Benny Yurco. The rhythm tracks were cut & dub'd on on his 1/2" tape recorder in his home studio in Vermont, Little Jamaica, one day in May of 2019. Most of the recordings were then sent to dear friends/fellow musicians/recordist, Seth Kauffman (Floating Action/Angel Olsen/Jim James), Michael Nau, & Graeme Gibson (Michael Nau) for additional instrument overdub recordings.
YAMDs was mixed by Graeme Gibson & mastered by Christopher Colbert.
Cover Art / Art Direction by Leann Cornelius & Scott Mcmicken
