Editorial Reviews

Rosebud's sole album was an eclectic but erratic venture. It veered between psychedelic-tinged, poetic tracks reminiscent of Henske-Yester's Farewell Aldebaran ("Le Soleil," "Lullabye II (Summer Carol)," "Lorelei"), ornately orchestrated, tuneful art-pop ("Flying to Morning"), pedestrian-period L.A. singer-songwriter music, and country-rock. It seems no coincidence that the four tracks praised in the previous sentence were penned by Henske and Yester, while most of the remaining ones on the LP were not. The record was at its best when it attained that oddball mystical, ethereal air characteristic of Henske-Yester's best collaborations, retaining accessibility via their almost pseudo-classical melodies. When they weren't aspiring to this level, Rosebud was just an ordinary, laid-back, early-1970s, California rock band. It might be misguided to criticize the record for what it wasn't, and for not featuring Henske more as the lead vocalist, since the other singers in the band couldn't match her at all. Rosebud was a group project, not a duo one like Henske-Yester, which might be why she and he are more subdued on this effort. Still, it seems like there's half of a good album struggling to become a whole one. ~ Richie Unterberger, All Music Guide

Well, Rosebud, actually. Husband and wife team at the time, Judy Henske and Jerry Yester had already defied all genres and categories with the stunning Farewell Aldebaran (see my review). Rosebud (the name of the band and a nod to the oddness of Orson Wells, I assume) is far more into the country rock area, although there is not an ounce of yeehaw in it: if there is any admixture to be spotted, it is a cross between Gram Parsons, The Eagles, The Beatles and something else - the often rather spooky otherwordly atmosphere that Judy cooks up with her words and Yester with his arrangements. The musicianship is absolutely first class, and even features Buddy Emmons, which is worth the price of admission alone. And as with Aldebaran, the world-weary but unusual vocal harmonies and lead lines give the whole thing an ethereal effect, pretentious as that may sound. Best to concentate on three songs, perhaps, to give an idea of what you can expect, but as a final general point, the bass lines are also very rewarding, for example, in Reno using the major seventh on the dominant in the chorus to give real strength to the vocal line, and to add tension. Where do I start? With Western Wisconsin. This song is about the stark contrast between a rural childhood spent playing in streams and mucking about as country kids, "1,000 miles from the sea", and the current married state in a glass and concrete city at the forefront of modern life on the coast. And of course, the storyteller fell in love with his play friend cousin Nancy in those idyllic days as she in turn "fell in love with the carnival cowboy". When you reach the line "Oh how my heart, is aching for Nancy", even the most stony faced among you will find a tear forming. Yes, I know that it all sounds very hokey and corny, but it isn't.Read more ›

I admit to a serendipitous resonance with "WW", lyrically, but it is a beautiful, melodic, plaintive tune that manages to stop this side of sentimentality. "Lorelei", "Soleil", "Lulabye II", are other tunes which are also pleasing. The band itself is accomplished, tight, and manages to depart, in a positive way, from the folk-rock conventions of the 60s/70s. This is a good effort, and I was pleasantly surprised to see it being released on CD; my vinyl copy is a bit worse for wear.

Rosebud is a set that created magic for me from the time it first hit my turntable in 1971 when it was originally released on Straight Records. Judy Henske and her husband Jerry Yester were the principal members with Craig Doerge also on board. The sound was akin to Fleetwood Mac from their Bare Trees era. This 2004 re-release by Collectors Choice sat on my wish list for quite awhile before I decided to add the disc as a companion to my still excellent vinyl copy. Yester and Henske, according to liner notes, split before the set's release resulting in a lack of promotion and zero touring. However, the music is breathtaking. The opener "Panama" starts with raindrop sound effects and bursts into folk/rock with Latin-flavored percussion and the bubbly chorus, "I want to get away, want to go where it's raining to Panama." "Western Wisconsin" is another of the tunes that frequently plays in my head with a sense of nostalgia looking back on the past, "A rusty old row boat, our kingdom of kingdoms; Every August we went to the fairgrounds, my cousin Nancy and me." Then the band breaks out into a beer hall chorus with everybody chiming in about being a 1,000 miles from the sea. The ballad "Lorelei" has some beautiful high-pitched vocals from Jerry that resemble notes his brother Jim hit on many of the Association's great hits, "Rapture of deep, Lorelei, come sleep with me, naked while the fire dies, a hurricane is in my heart, oceans in her eyes." "Roll Home Cheyenne" is another classic song with its lovely melody and airy harmonies, "Oh Wyoming, I'm bound to see her soon." "Rosebud" is a lovely classic set that deserves to be remembered. Bravo!

Rosebud. I first learned of their existence on Warner Brothers 1971 lp sampler Non-Dairy Creamer. Years later, I traced the song Raider from Plainsong to Farewell Aldebaran. Judy Henske and Jerry Yester to Rosebud. Panama was on the sampler. Opens the Rosebud show. Which because of changing affections closed the Rosebud show. During the program, however, the songs were the thing. Collector's Choice Music to the rescue. Panama, Le Soleil, Reno, Western Wisconsin, Loreli--all fabulous. Anybody looking for pristine harmony vocals will love these songs. Lullaby also impeccable. Arrangement Yester. Jerry Yester also produced. Roll Home Cheyenne is a definite piece of Americana. Flying to Morning the end of the record. Nice arrangement, great Judy vocal. Violins, piano--a little pounding and swing. Out.
