Voyage exotique étrange, drame en trois actes, noué autour de la chanteuse leda, déesse d'une île mystérieuse et hostile... un must pour s'évader des chaumières climatisées et douillettes !
Portrait of Leda
Leda Annest with Phil Moore
Lord have mercy, this is a heavy album.
Works as an abstract vocal autobiography. Leda tells her her own wordless life story with Phil's exotic jazz interpretations backing her, and resulting "portrait" is heavy, heady, and incredibly strange.
Again, your gonna have to track down the vinyl on this one, 'cuz there's no CD as of yet. Hope you find it.
but you can buy it here & send me the notes of the sleeve...
Rare exotica album from 1958 on Columbia's 'Adventures In Sound' label by this monster abstract vocalist Leda Annest! Backed by orchestral and kitsch tiki music composed by Phil Moore, Annest uses her voice as an instrument in a strange and somewhat scary way. If you like Diamanda Galas or Yma Sumak, check this out!
LP - WL114 - £9.99Original sleeve artwork with hilariously pretentious sleeve notes!
and don't forget :
"Leda sings Blood Music...she uses no words and they are not missed. She uses the human body?her human body? as a vocal instrument."
