Daniel Long The vocals remind me of the wonderful Arthur Lee Harper who made that beautiful album Dreams and Images in 1968 Favorite track: My Love Sunday.

Jenell Kesler Walker Phillips trips out a haunting atmospheric album of exceptional proportions, rolling back the years and bringing forth a haunting and lightly experimental vision that seems to have been beamed in from the hazed psychedelic 60’s, where a disembodied DJ would spin this entire record late into the night, with listeners putting off their nocturnal slumbers in favor of hearing what would be unveiled next.

Taylor Geddes An apocalyptic and casually spiritual journey through a neo-occult-psych-folk lens, full of pop hooks and at times Cohen-esque writing. If David Tibet made folk music at the height of the psychedelic 60s it might sound something like this. Or, if this had come from that era Phillips would rank among acclaimed outsider artists like D.R. Hooker and Skip Spence, and would have had as much influence on Tibet. Took a chance based on incredible “Son of Death” and it's been in constant rotation since.

Come, sit by my side Albion Daughter The fair fire of water is In your eyes And I ain't no ways tired Listen, love Listen Plant silver in your garden The Sun and The Moon Are married today And I ain't no ways tired Let the killing begin Tis now the season Some adder's poison is in My Heart And I ain't no ways tired

Son of Death 05:06
Now now, nor was ever Not in the day or the night Such a terrible, terrible sight as this The Sun has died She whispered to a sparrow Her words were alive And the Four became a Five The Sun has died Listen carefully, listen well The Sun has a secret You can never tell Now arise Arise, Sun of Death Six Horses Six Swans Six Voices The Sun is gone Father in the name of The Spirit Spirit in the name of The One Whose name goes on forever Whose name is The Son Holy mystery The spinning wheel that winds The Twins whose eyes Are intertwined In the evening of Time Now arise Arise, Son of Death Inside of The Circle There is a square Inside of The Square A circle is there...

My love, Sunday Flowers rest all upon Her hair See how The Sunlight Plays upon Her skin so fair The colours of sunset Spell Her name out across The Sea The silv'ry mist of Twilight passes over me And I will be there Happy to share My Love My love whispers A harpsichord note upon The Air In a world of worries Well hath She learned not to care Now every Sunday Morning when the day begins And every Saturday As the evening ends She will be there Happy to share Her Love

Sorrow came today Her words were kind, She kindly asked to stay And then turned away And a light divides Her way O, it is but The Sun again And She in Her Golden Gown Good Night is arising Toward the Eastern pillars of The Forest Where the shadows rest And Sorrow is a black cat More than that A Gold hand to The Harpist But not more than this I’m Mr. Green Christmas I’m Mr. Sun I’m asking for forgiveness Forgive me with a song What starry secrets Are growing in the garden of Man? Will you help me throw These pebbles from my hand, my friend? Here is where we are Between the meaning of the Tarot Card And the Mason’s Jar My sister is a Swan How can it be I am her brother When I am no one’s son? Sorrow is a mountain A Fountain Her face round and pale Black is The Sun Yellow is Her Veil The Wind is in Her sail… Take me to the circus I am a two-headed man My eyes are mirrors Where Sorrow should have been And when The Sands of Time Bring you Frankincense & Myrrh Sorrow, you will find, Is as kindly as before

When I was Seven I wished I’d be Eleven if I could But then I turned Twelve It didn’t do me very much good I dreamt I saw a Fox Who swallowed the keys To the garden locks Why don’t you hide downstairs? (Climbed up The Tower & turned around) No one will know that you’re there (And London Bridge came falling down) Nor will they care what you do (I washed away in a drop of rain) Hide in a shoe ‘cause it’s raining (And climbed up The Tower again) Oh well, how do you know? The Mothers & Fathers & Letters & Numbers they tell me so Oh well, how will you grow? Bury me in The Soil and See… Diana, Diana She broke her mirror in two But out of her sadness A ladder did grow, and grew I wonder which of us Will turn into Gold And which will rust? To fly with The Birds you must Crawl with The Worms in the dust Swim with The Fish in the sea Burn in the The Fire never ending

Six 05:40
Six is the number of many a thing The number of sorrows the Magpie brings The number of Nebuchadnezzar’s dreams The number of rubies in Saturn’s rings Three stones ‘round the sides Three stones in the middle The Eternal Answer to The Eternal Riddle The Ineffable Name, The Flute & The Fiddle Or a Seven reflected in a wishing well Six is the number of a Peacock’s eye The number of a flower when it dies The reason the seas fall and rise One side of a coin that has two sides For blessed is one like wood in the flame Who sees the part that he plays in the game Who knows well The Lamb & The Serpent by name And calls upon Them blindly For they both are the same Virgo is cold-lipped and blue And likewise her brothers are too The Lion, The Lover, The Seraph, The Swan The seeds from whom all creation grew Seek Her in the house where Time is a child Find Her in places where space is unreal To talk of tomorrow, to beg or to borrow To be born & to die On The Ever Spinning Wheel Six is the blood in The Holy Grail The shell of a garden snail The Heart, The Hand & a castle of sand Six is the number of Man

A statue of bronze in the soft satin afternoon light A garden of white & red roses on the left & the right There’s a blanket of gold on the sand Quicksilver & stone in your hand I want you to know that we all love you so, Anne Remember when you were a child You didn’t know who you were Now that you have four faces Do you know who you are? I know just who I would like to be I’ve learned that to love is to see I want you to know that we all love you so, Anne Let down your hair Come dance in the forest With The Mandrake & The Crow I want you to know that we all love you so, Anne

There are times I don’t mind Oh, no one knows me here If you do, I could stay with you To see Sophia talking backwards And walking to the left of The Sun Ain’t it true it’s the same with you? Mother of The Child Sister of The Circle Serpent of The Dawn She built a house of Always Strung garlic o’er the doorways And there two trees together have grown Like Abraham & Isaac In the shallows of forgiveness O Blessed in the castle of Good Morning Where in The Seven Halls of Evening Seven maids are weaving A gown with gold & silver adorning And now The Red Queen is in Her glass prison Becoming The Moon Sublimated & fair What can I do? I’m the same as you

End Times 06:19
Is it any wonder that The Harvest Time has come? You will come to understand It’s only just begun Oh your sins have reached even unto Heaven Everyone is counted according to his ways So if you read the numbers rightly You can count the days Until it’s gone The years pass by like hours, don’t they? That’s because we’re living in The End Times It’s such a beautiful thing to know Where are you going to go? The Four Winds bend the branches Like they never did before And I’ve seen dark figures moving On the distant shore So now I’m sure Are you sure? Your loves all seem like sorrows, don’t they? That’s because we’re living in The End Times It’s such a beautiful thing to know Where are you going to go? There are many eyes upon you Above you, and Below So even as The Reaper reaps the grain So seeds you’ll sew And so it goes And so it goes…
