If you like: Folk-infused soft rock with progressive leanings–in the vein of Jim Spencer, Salty Miller, Ned Doheny, or Dolphin–you will love this album crazy.
About: The first, artist authorized reissue of Ilian’s sole album, Love Me Crazy. Existing outside the celebrated circle of private press classics of late ‘70s America, Illian steers honest pop and progressive moods along the coast of California where Love Me Crazy was conceived.
As a musician Ilian has backed Chuck Berry, Dottie West, played guitar with Zephyr after Tommy Bolin left, recorded with the Cleveland Symphony Orchestra, worked with Keith of “98.6” fame and much more. All the while, he was recording his own songs and firing them off to record labels. *via Ilian
