Martinez, Hirth

Vinyl Records and Rare LPs:

Martinez, Hirth - Hirth From Earth Hirth From Earth
Pop New - LP BS 3867 Warner
Sealed 1975 Original With Booklet Sealed Under Rear Shrink Wrap. Probably A White Label Promo. Produced By Robbie Robertson. In 1974, Robbie Robertson Became Fascinated By The Music Of The Totally Unknown And Very Eccentric Guitarist And Songwriter Hirth Martinez, A Man Who "Sang Of UFOs As Well As Loneliness And Self-Doubt", And Decided To Produce An Album For Him. It Was Among The Loopier Products Of L.A.'S Singer-Songwriter Underbelly, Pitched Somewhere Between The Van Dyke Parks Of Song Cycle And The Dr.John Of Gris-Gris. There Was Sandpipers-Style Samba ("Altogether Alone"), Some Soft California Funk ("Djini"), A Slice Of Cosmic Beach Boys Dippiness ("Be Everything"), And Even The Sub-Captain Beefheart "Comin' Round The Moon". Notwithstanding Some Interesting Moments ("Silent Movies") And Snatches Of Inspired Playing From Robbie And Garth, Hirth's Nutty Lyrics Were At Best An Aquired Taste. Hirth From Earth Received Uniformly Disparaging Reviews, But Robbie Later Would Defend His Decision To Produce The Album, Claiming That People Did Not Understand How Great A Songwriter Martinez Was.... more details
