Having written The Association s Windy while living in David Crosby s basement, RUTHANN FRIEDMAN remained an intriguing and mysterious figure of 60s pop for decades. Until recently her released output consisted of a lone folk album issued in 1970. Unbelievably, many fascinating recordings she created with some of the most revered names in West Coast pop have remained locked away in the vaults... until NOW! Featuring productions by CURT BOETTCHER, TOMMY LiPUMA, and VAN DYKE PARKS, Windy: A Ruthann Friedman Songbook contains 18 tracks from 1966-1970, focusing on Ruthann s pop/rock efforts from this era. Musicians include RANDY NEWMAN, RON ELLIOTT of The Beau Brummels, and RUSS GIGUERE from The Association! One listen to this CD and you ll wonder why Ruthann didn t have more hits of the magnitude of Windy. Mastered by Alan Brownstein FROM THE ORIGINAL MASTER TAPES! The full-colour booklet includes rare photos and extensive liner notes featuring the participation of Ruthann herself! Produced for reissue by Steve Stanley.
