FAINE JADE - Introspection A Faine Jade Recital (Radioactive RRCD163) UK 1967 CD
CD, booklet and inlay in Mint- condition. (fine item)
Long Island guitarist Faine Jade began performing and recording as a member of the Rustics in the mid-'60s, with basic, energetic, angst-ridden material that differed little from literally thousands of other like-minded garage bands across the country. After a single with the Rustics in 1966, Jade recorded a 45 under his own name in 1967, "It Ain't True," which was rescued from obscurity on the Pebbles, Vol. 8 compilation. His solo LP on the tiny R.S.V.P. label in 1968, Introspection: A Faine Jade Recital, showed a quantum leap in songwriting with reflective, enigmatic lyrics and a swirling but disciplined melodicism. It has ranked among the most coveted collectibles of the psychedelic era, and has resurfaced several times beginning in the early '80s. After recording an album as a member of the country-rock band Dustbowl Clementine in 1970, Jade has been mostly inactive.
