Manufactured in the EU although record label says Made In Canada
Afro-Canadian singer, songwriter, and cult figure within new age experimental sounds, has been long sought after.
Beverly Glenn-Copeland was born in Philadelphia USA but this jazz folk album was recorded in Canada for the CBC in-house label and only released to CBC radio stations. Stand out tracks include the amazing ‘Don’t Despair’ and ‘Good Morning Blues’, both written by Copeland, and a psych jazz reprise of the first track ‘Don’t Despair’. Incredibly rare, originals of this LP have been known to sell for up to USD$1500 in the market place. Having transitioned to a man, Glenn Copeland is still recording and playing his incredible music today.
