Toulouse Engelhardt, often called the "Segovia of Surf”, returns to the Coffee Gallery Backstage in June. He is an award winning fingerstyle guitar "Monster”, who was the last member of the legendary "Takoma 7,” an elite group of fingerstyle guitar innovators that recorded for John Fahey’s Takoma Records from 1959-1976. John Fahey and Leo Kottke were his label mates!

"Jimmy Page meets John Fahey! Toulouse Engelhardt’s music transcends genres and is dazzling in it’s prismatic range of complex moves and emotions.”…Jimmy Page News; Music Industry Today

Opening the show will be John York, singer-songwriter and former member of the legendary folk-rock band, The "Byrds”. John York is currently touring with Barry McGuire, and has played with The Mamas and the Papas, Dr. John, Johnny Rivers, Rick Danko, Gene Clark, Richard Manuel, The Sir Douglas Quintet, Rolling Stones keyboardist Nicky Hopkins, and Blues legend Lightin' Hopkins.

"John York is the last pure voice of the Silver Sixties.".....Kim Fowley

Toulouse says; "Both John and I are really stoked about these performances. I am always honored to work with him. I have been a huge fan of his work since his days with the "Byrds”. John is a very talented singer-songwriter with a sweet, mellow voice and deep lyrical expression. John adds his thoughts: "What a pleasure to be sharing the stage once again with Toulouse Engelhardt. It's a chance for music fans to see the world's fastest guitar player with one of the world's slowest guitar players!

Gene Clark’s album from 1977 TWO SIDES TO EVERY STORY has been re-released at long last, after years of speculations and broken promises.

This authorized 12”, 180 gram audiophile vinyl LP contains all the song from the original LP, remastered from the analog master tapes.

It comes with a full-color LP-sized book with many exclusive photos, an inner sleeve with photos, lyrics and credits, a download card and an essay about Gene’s career.

The label (High Moon Records) plans to release a double CD with bonus tracks. The bonus tracks are different from those which will be downloadable with the download card.

Pictured here is LP #261 of the first pressing, a numbered limited edition of 5,000.
