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.

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.)

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.

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.

Good lord....I just heard the tail end of the song "Baby" on NPR's Dinner Party Download and frantically wrote the name of the band down so I could find out more about these songs. The vocals are so sexy, lazy, dreamy. Filled with longing and hope. Hearing the first few lines is like being thrown right back into my angst ridden adolescence...it reminds me of pining over a boy and waiting for the phone to ring. LOVE this! As an adult, I want to turn down the lights, get out the candles and dance in front of the fire. Sweet and sexy music.
