Get in Golden's time machine and you're rocking at Andy Warhol's Factory. Hey--there's Lou Reed! Looks like Lotti Golden may have a website coming soon--there's a photo posted she's on a motorcycle.
I'm glad that Golden's "Motor-Cycle" is being listened to by a whole new generation of music fans. The longevity of her LP is uncanny-it had a cult following for years, and is exponentially expanding since the Internet. There's never been another LP remotely like it. Your site was among the first, showing your excellent taste in the rare and unusual--which is rare and unusual in these fairly mundane, artistically tame times.

Since music fans are going through archives to find musical gems with integrity, artistry and originality, Atlantic Records, for example, should reissue Lotti Golden's "Motor-Cycle.
Hope we get to hear from Lotti Golden in A lot of fans would buy it--not ony dowload. It's hard to fathom how these record lables don't know what's up online.
If they had earned royalties for every Golden LP download, they'd actually have a success! But they'd rather sue students and grandmothers than reissue a record on CD that has thousands of fans.

Just heard "Motor-Cycle" by Lotti Golden. Thanks to Max for the recommendation. Golden's record is revolutionary, I think, even for its time. Lyrically, she's unique regarding the subject matter she covers. Golden's singing is very soulful and real-without all of the studio tricks used now.

If that isn't the track you found, I'd love to hear it if you're inclined to post it. You have a knack for spotting the good stuff; Golden's work has generated much discussion, as it should. This LP is highly experimental--one of the early concept LP's where all of the songs add up to one story.
Golden extended the length of the songs, sometimes with long instrumentals like jazz artist--Yusif Latif, or the Grateful Dead. Wish she would've gotten more credit for such a groundbreaking work. I did read though, that the LP got major critical acclaim, but the record company failed to promote it. Just read the above mentioned interview.
