In 1968, 15-year-old guitarist/singer Jay Kaye trekked from Las Vegas to Vancouver, British Columbia. There, with a top notch team of session musicians, he recorded Suddenly One Summer, a dark masterpiece of orchestral psychedelia, intended to musically represent the life and death of a man. This first-ever legitimate reissue of this ultra rare album is available on CD and high-definition vinyl, direct from the analog master tapes, and features interviews with Jay Kaye and key members of his Company.

"Suddenly One Summer is sought after for a reason and Jay Kaye was just a teenager when he wrote this stuff. It's been a collectors item and it is undoubtedly one of the best pop psych albums released back in 1968. Another masterpiece from the Psychedelic Renaissance Era! Just listen to "Fly", "O.D.", "Land Of Sensations and Delights" and "Dead". Exquisite arrangements and vocals, not to mention some nice fuzz. You'll start to climb until you've reached your peak! Another top review in my large list of favorite 60's albums!"

"Recommended you listen to this while tripping on anything from cough syrup to mushrooms to meditation and your little minds will be blown, like young J. Kaye's obviously was. It's hard for me to even believe that he was that young. However when you find out his mom's a professional jazz guitarist and he heard the Beatles before they hit big in america, skipping school at thirteen to listen to their records all during the first great psychedelic era (second one coming soon) it's actually plausable. "Fly" is the first track you will LOVE (reverse tape stuff, mind numbing lyrics) but actually the whole album is a conceptual piece spanning from birth to death, you'll really dig the whole thing.... Also of note is that this was reissued on vinyl, available at www.sundazed.com. viva analogue! cds are wretched!"
4.5 star lost classic with great story behind it!

"Truly deserving a reissue this lost "pysche" classic is worthy of the cult following it has garnered. I am so glad i stumbled upon this excellent mix of what sounds like at times mellow Radiohead some 30 years before their time written by a very talented 15 year old. It ofcourse has all the hippie and pyschedelic trappings or benefits as i consider them and is a time capsule of 67-68 but like the pretty things S.F sorrow it is well recorded arranged and very honest if not naive. I personally love all the 1967-68 recordings from the bands during this era and this is one that deserves to be heard along any other summer of love classic. Its a mix of orchestral pysche pop with some interesting sound effects backward guitars and upfront trippy vocals. One of the best unknown hard to find albums in my opinion."
