Product Description

JAKE HOLMES

THE ABOVE GROUND SOUND OF JAKE HOLMES

 

NEW & SEALED LP

 Having honed his craft in the folk clubs of New York, Jake Holmes released his debut album in July 1967.

Best-known for including the original version of 'Dazed & Confused' (later immortalized by Led Zeppelin), it's an early acid singer-songwriter landmark, packed with inventive songs featuring notable electric guitar parts. It makes a long-awaited return to vinyl here, together with background notes and two rare bonus tracks on the included CD version.

Notes
Contains the original version of Dazed And Confused, re-interpreted by Led Zeppelin in 1969, and covered by the Yardbirds on Live Yardbirds.

Jake Holmes is an American folk-rock singer/songwriter of the late 1960s

Holmes is the author of the song ¿Dazed and Confused¿

which was later adopted and popularized by Led Zeppelin

In the 1970s, Holmes moved into writing advertising jingles

He is the composer of ¿Be All You Can Be¿ for the US Army

He also wrote ¿Be A Pepper¿ for Dr Pepper
This, his first recording, originally appeared on the Tower label in 1967

When folk-rock singer/songwriter Jake Holmes opened for The Yardbirds in New York in August 1967, little did he suspect that one of his songs, Dazed And Confused, would be "commandeered" by guitarist Jimmy Page and become one of his next bands major live showpieces. The band in question is of course Led Zeppelin, and although The Yardbirds did incorporate the song into their live set, it is the Led Zep version that provided Holmes with his 15 minutes of fame, although Mr Page, clearly suffering from a temporary bout of amnesia, forgetfully claimed the song writing credit himself. Holmes had done the rounds of the New York folk scene, working in bands with the likes of Tim Rose before going solo. This, his first recording, originally appeared on the Tower label (ST 5079) in 1967. The album is considered a folk-rock masterpiece, and was described at the time as "a songwriter, three guitars and a mirror". The guitars of Holmes, Ted Irwin (later to play with Elliot Murphy, Roy Buchanan and various country singers) are the only backing for Holmes voice and the 10 short tracks are outstanding, but especially the sparer, stripped-down original version of Dazed And Confused.
