Synopsis

Album Description
Singer/songwriter Essra Mohawk (b. Sandra Elayne Hurvitz, Philadelphia, PA) is one of those unfortunate artists whose work is celebrated by critics & a small group of ardent admirers, but never by the public at large. Mohawk's first single was 'The Boy With the Way' with B-side 'Memory of Your Voice' on Liberty Records in 1964. She declined several offers of staff writerships, although the Shangri-Las & Vanilla Fudge began recording her material. In 1967, Mohawk met Frank Zappa, eventually joining the Mothers of Invention, where she reluctantly assumed the moniker Uncle Meat. Frank Zappa signed her to his Bizarre label (a Verve subsidiary) for her first album, this is a Japanese reissue of her 3rd album from 1975 on Air Mail Recordings packaged in a mini-LP sleeve. 2003.
