Artist: TREE PEOPLE, THE
Title: Human Voices
Format: CD
Label: Guerssen
Country: Spain
Price: $18.00
"This is the second album from Oregons The Tree People, the late 70s predecessors to the ongoing new folk movement in the USA. You already know about their 1979 debut album and you know its a masterpiece, but did you know about their second album recorded in 1984? Surely not, especially because it was a cassette-only release with a very short print-run. Luckily enough, The Tree People guys kept the mastertapes of these recordings and Guerssen Records is proud to be making this wonderful music available again. Reissued on CD with a vinyl version to come later, the sound quality is splendid, and the music itself is equally as good, if not better than, their self-titled debut and is a real must for any folk and psych-folk lover. Acoustic guitars, subtle percussion, wonderful flute work and some warm vocals -- overall, this is a real big dose of quality and originality that makes The Tree Peoples music absolutely ahead of its time and therefore so much admired today. A real beauty! This CD includes a booklet with liner notes by the bands leader Stephen Cohen, as well as some nice pictures." -Guerssen

"Previously released on CD by Guerssen Records, now available on vinyl. This is the second album from Oregons The Tree People, the late 70s Oregon-based predecessors to the ongoing new folk movement in the USA. You already know about their 1979 debut album and you know its a masterpiece, but did you know about their second album recorded in 1984? Surely not, especially because it was a cassette-only release with a very short print-run. The sound quality on this reissue is splendid, and the music itself is equally as good, if not better than, their self-titled debut and is a real must for any folk and psych-folk lover. Acoustic guitars, subtle percussion, pastoral flute work and some warm vocals make The Tree Peoples music absolutely ahead of its time. A real beauty! Includes an insert with liner notes by the bands leader Stephen Cohen, as well as some nice pictures." -Guerssen

Title: Its My Story
Format: LP
Label: Guerssen
Country: Spain
Price: $25.00
"Oregons fathers of freak-folk/folk psych pioneers The Tree People have, incredibly, made another album once again. Responsible for two awesome works in the late 70s and early 80s, here they are now with a new album and they sound exactly as they did 30 years ago. This could be their best work ever. Mellow, tender freak-folk with acoustic guitar, double bass, recorder, flute and percussion. Eleven new tracks, plus a new version of "Space Heater" from their 1979 debut. Includes an insert with photos and lyrics, as well as liner notes by folk-psych connoisseur Gerald Van Waes." -Guerssen

Title: The Tree People
Format: LP
Label: Guerssen
Country: Spain
Price: $28.00
"Self-titled album by Oregon group Tree People has finally reached its deserved status after the excellent CD reissue released by Japanese label Tiliqua a couple years ago. Tree People is no other than a fantastic piece of hippie acid folk that clearly anticipates todays freak folk movement. Very clean production, with an Eastern flavor noticeable in many passages and using acoustic guitars, varied percussions and flutes, while the strong vocals of Stephen Cohen finalize the picture. Remastered sound from masters, has insert with rare photos." - Guerssen

Title: s/t
Format: CD
Label: Tiliqua
Country: Japan
Price: $23.00
"Tiliqua Records is psyched about being able to present a whole new audience and generation with the lysergic beauty of the Tree Peoples sole recorded artifact, a privately released acid folk gem out of 1979. In times when people are all getting excited about media-created scenes like ⿿New Weird America⿝ and ⿿Freak Folk⿝, they seem to overlook the fact that such music was already being created decades ago. The Tree People is evidence of such a splash of creativity that sadly enough was doomed to disappear within the cracks of obscurity. Until now. Tiliqua was granted the opportunity to restore this gem and with the kind collaboration of Mr. Cohen of the Tree People, who provided me with the master tapes and a seemingly unlimited support, Tiliqua was able to prepare this reissue. To me, this album is one of the singular most beautiful gems to have crossed my path and words always fall short in an attempt to describe the aural sensation it unleashes. ⿿Upon listening today this hushed and intimate feeling still resonates through the music ⿿ the record possesses an extraordinarily potent atmosphere that still intoxicates the senses after so many years. Over a combustible backing dominated by shimmering strings, bone-shaking hand percussion rhythms, and quivering sensuous threads of eastern-toned flute playing, the group succeeded in concocting up a syncretic combination of meditative Indian raga, western folk stylings and idiosyncratic melodic ideas. The music breathes out intimacy and communicates with a rare directness - hooking you instantly with sheer aural bliss derived from the melody, from the flowing beat, from the sound of the words and syllables and of all those separate elements interacting with each other, rendered into a concentrated, gracious flow of lunar notes. The albums compositions have so many hidden qualities, all breathing out deep and affectionate sentiments that reveal, just like a lotus flower centered on the axis with its petals unfolding towards the circumference, a streamlined adhesion towards the groups own singular creed. Listen to it and you may feel like awakening from a deep slumber, your unconsciousness leaking away as aspects of reality slowly mix in with the rest of your already blurred mindset.⿝ First time ever official reissue, housed in a sturdy mini-LP styled gatefold sleeve." - Tiliqua.
