LP - Greg Yoder - Dreamer of Life - Reissue
LP version in deluxe tip-on sleeve. First vinyl reissue. Reissue of Dreamer of Life by Greg Yoder, a killer private-press AOR LP infused with folk, jazz, and soul notes. One of the best albums from the Hawaiian scene in this style, fully restored and remastered with great attention to sound quality. Originally from San Francisco, Greg Yoder moved to Hawaii in the early '70s and, after achieving some local fame in the Waikiki area, recorded this one-off LP in 1976 at Audissey Sound studios in Honolulu. The music is smooth and soothing, mixing xylophones, percussion, sweet guitars, and brilliant orchestrations. In short, Dreamer of Life is full of hidden hits and flawless from the first note to the last. Following his various projects at Favorite Recordings, DJ and producer Charles Maurice unveiled this masterpiece in 2016 by selecting the song "Things Were So Easy" for the AOR Global Sounds 1975-1983 Volume 2 compilation (FVR 116CD/LP). And after the label contacted Greg Yoder about it, the idea of reissuing this amazing album quickly became obvious. After its various compilations since 2014, Favorite Recordings is more eager than ever to recover forgotten rare-groove music.
