In two weeks time Bill Baird’s two years in the making, double LP, Spring Break of the Soul, will appear on Pau Wau Records.
The album contains 17 new songs. As usual, each is a genuine avant-pop nugget that evokes the untouchable sounds of Syd Barrett, Van Dyke Parks, Harry Nilsson, Ray Davies, Captain Beefheart, and Robyn Hitchcock. Accompanying the album is a 32-page book with all manner of visual aides (photos, extra artwork), as well as full-color sheet music. There’s even a copy of an unrealized movie script penned by Baird included.
