Linda Perhacs: "Parallelograms" (Folk-Psych US Kapp, 1970)


A Lost Gem From The 60's
Obscure psychedelic folk singer Linda Perhacs released her only album Parallelograms in 1970 to scant notice or sales. Perhacs' album was rediscovered by record enthusiasts and grew in popularity with the rise of the New Weird America movement.



Although many have written her off as a Joni Mitchell clone, I must beg to differ. Linda Perhacs' vocals are very intimate and bittersweet. Actually, the only way Joni Mitchell could make a record like this would be if she took a large amount of LSD. The multi-tracked vocals are one of the best things about this album. This is very good music that will calm your soul and possibly open your mind.


"Linda's sole album, originally released on Kapp in 1970, has gained its deserved fame and reputation in the folk-psych scene in the last years after the NY label Wild Places released it on CD format some few years ago. We could talk about Joni Mitchell and the likes if we had to compare with anything, but fans of folk music in all its variety must be delighted with this amazing album, a truly hippie psychedelic folk masterpiece and without any doubt one of the top albums of the genre. This beauty was reissued on vinyl a few years ago in Korea as well, in a 500 pieces limited pressing that sold out instantly...and we believe this one MUST be available unlimited so here we come with a gorgeous, tremendous sounding reissue of the legendary album plus 2 bonus tracks (exactly like the Korean release), a poster and an insert."
