Artist: PERHACS, LINDA
Title: Parallelograms
Format: Double LP
Label: Anthology
Country: USA
Price: $28.00
"Originally released on the Kapp label in 1970, Linda Perhacs sleeper psych-folk opus Parallelograms has enjoyed a perennial resurgence since it surfaced on collectors radar in the 90s. Gentle as it is deep, few records have been able to capture the emotional depth of a beautiful strangers mind on a breezy summers day, framed by deceptively deep arrangements and Ms. Perhacs lucid vocal delivery. Anthology presents the definitive version of Parallelograms, mastered from the original tapes and featuring a bonus LP of demos and interviews. It comes in a reverse board gatefold jacket with a six-panel insert and includes a digital download code." - Anthology.

Title: Parallelograms
Format: Double LP
Label: Mexican Summer
Country: USA
Price: $28.00
Deluxe gatefold, hand-numbered edition of 1000 copies, featuring a download coupon and 6-sided insert with new liner notes written by Perhacs in May, 2010. "Mexican Summer is beyond psyched to present a hefty, heavy gatefold edition of Linda Perhacss lone album, Parallelograms. On the strength of this single album, recorded in 1970, Linda Perhacs remains a towering figure in the world of psychedelia, folk, female singer-songwriters, and acid-visionaries alike. Lauded by artists as diverse as Daft Punk, Devendra Banhart, Animal Collective, and Swedish metal band Opeth, in the 21st century, her album remains a testament to her singularity of vision. Ignored upon its initial release, Parallelograms seemingly sank without a trace, and Perhacs gave up making music for the next forty years. Psych fans the world over unearthed and began to obsess over this album in the meantime: a spine-tingling blend of crystalline vocal melodies from Perhacs, mind-expanding sound effects, and on the title track, one of the finest aural hallucinations ever captured, equal parts sound sculpture and visual music." -Mexican Summer

Title: Parallelograms
Format: CD
Label: The Wild Places
Country: USA
Price: $12.00
Original copies of the second of two CD versions from Wild Places (the first label to reissue "Parallelograms"). This one, from 2003, includes 6 previous unreleased demos. "Linda Perhacs Parallelograms is one of those exceptions that proves the rule; the American equivalent to Vashti Bunyans Just Another Diamond Day. An uncanny mix of Aquarian folk and ethereal, avant-garde treatments, Parallelograms was created in the heart of hippy country, LAs Topanga Canyon, by a dental hygienist who was inspired by nature and by the cultural revolution going on around her. “Im not a drug user,” she says now, still living on Topanga Canyon Boulevard. “I never was in the ‘60s and ‘70s, but I loved those people because they were dealing with energies, and our conversation level would be very deep. Im deeply intuitive, I see and hear things the average person might not experience.

Parallelograms was produced by one of Perhacs dental clients, Leonard Rosenmann, a film composer who had written the scores for Rebel Without A Cause and Barry Lyndon. Over nine months, with a host of experienced players on call – “I felt like a street urchin being schooled by Picasso,” she says – Rosenmann fleshed out Perhacs astonishing and intuitive musical vision. When Parallelograms was finished, it sounded like a masterpiece, but the Kapp label pressed it so badly that, Perhacs says, “I could only bear to listen to it once. I then threw my copy of my own record away.” Promotion was negligible, sales non-existent. Obscurity beckoned.” - from Linda Perhacs website.
