Editorial Reviews

Digitally remastered edition of this 1979 album that has become one of the most talked-about privately-pressed albums of the '70s. Dreamin' Wild is the sonic vision of the talented Emerson boys, recorded in a family built home studio in rural Washington State. Situated in the unlikely blink-and-you-missed-it town of Fruitland and far removed from the late 1970s punk movement and the larger disco boom, Donnie and Joe tilled their own musical soil, channeling bedroom pop jams, raw funk, and yacht rock. The duo's 'Baby' is an extremely haunting slice of Psych Folk laced with Soul. Light In The Attic.

4.0 out of 5 stars Out of Nowhere July 6, 2012
Format:MP3 Music
I first heard this in a record store in Boise, Idaho. I initially thought it was some new indie band, but I liked the sound (I"m more of a hard rock guy, but I listen to the National every now and then.) When the clerk told me the story of these two farm kids whose dad built them a studio just for their musical hobbies, how they self-produced this album but couldn't find a distributor, and how 30 years later a music critic in Spokane, Washington, stumbled across it at a record shop and got a distribution deal, I was hooked. I have been waiting for it to be released, and actually missed the fact that it had been, but thanks to NPR's All Music Considered, I found out it was available at Amazon.

It really is a terrific album with little to no filler, and a fun listen. I highly recommend adding it to your library, especially if you like 70's AM Gold funk-pop (a la John Ford Coley & Dan England or the Bay City Rollers.)

4.0 out of 5 stars Affecting Vocals October 22, 2012
By David
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
While not the most polished musicians, the Emerson brothers have enough talent, for me, to give their songs a kind of raw beauty. I was particularly affected by Donnie Emerson's vocals, capturing the passion of youth wrapped in naivete and hopefulness. "Dream Full of Dreams" is my favorite song.

3.0 out of 5 stars Simple and beautiful May 20, 2013
Format:Vinyl|Verified Purchase
This album, being recorded by amateurs, lacks the proper levels to make everything sound as full as it should. Bass lines are hidden, as are delicate guitar parts that should be in the forefront. That being said, this is a tremendous album. Lyrics are crafted by a 17 year old that would make you think that it was the tourtured sensitivity of man twice that age. Bedroom rock, soft ballads and even soul is represented here. "Baby" being the break out single of the record is vulnerable and honest with simple guitar parts and a haunting echo vocal while the drums are understated. This is a great record that should've gotten the play it deserves back in 1979. The record was made from the master tapes the boys made so many years ago and they would've done wonders with a sound engineer because some of the gems of the album are overshadowed by too much volume on the vocals and some of the synth work. Great album that makes me nostalgic for a time before I was born.

2.0 out of 5 stars you tell me September 6, 2012
By poxy
Format:Vinyl
are people serious that these guys have merit? must be taking the piss or tongue in cheek...otherwise, i really dont get it. dont think they are good players, their tunes are barely tunes and the singing voice is just delusional. i guess thats the charm. this is what 2 rich kids did who were isolated. not a spot on the shaggs butts. if you want somebody who had something to say check them out. this album sounds like a bunch of kids who want to get be cool and get laid. i dont get the innovation the others talk about they are just very very average all the way around. im a big fan of private pressing stuff. it doesn't make it good...this is not the New Creation or Kenneth Higney, believe me. the reviews make it sound like rock guitar was undiscovered during the disco era. are you kidding me?
