In the 60s and 70s, it was not rare to see Jerry Yester’s name on classic albums. Whether producing acts like The Association, The Turtles, Tim Buckley or Tom Waits, or hearing him in bands like The Modern Folk Quartet, Rosebud, The Lovin’ Spoonful or with Judy Henske on the (now) classic Farewell Aldebaran. Aside from a pair of 1967 singles, there wasn’t a Jerry Yester “solo album” from that period, as he was so busy creating music with and for other artists.

Pass Your Light Around collects the songs recorded in various studios throughout the 1970s (and even one dating back as far as 1964 from his Bleeker Street apartment). The songs were written with poet/ lyricist and Tim Buckley collaborator Larry Beckett (who he got to know while producing Buckley’s Goodbye and Hello and Happy Sad), and feature performances by Yester, Rosebud bandmates David Vaught and John Seiter, future Lone Justice member Don Heffington, and even Laurel Masse from The Manhattan Transfer among others.

In true Yester fashion, the instrumentation moves from classic guitar based instrumentation to strings, celeste, harmonium and synthesizer.

Produced by Jerry Yester with Grammy Award-Winner, Cheryl Pawelski, the sources for all the tracks were pulled from Jerry’s personal archives, and mastered by Grammy -winning engineer Michael Graves.

These 15 previously unissued tracks act as what could, and should have been another Yester-tagged classic, but this time under his own name.

Tracks: Pass Your Light Around / My Dusty Darling / Brooklyn Girl / The Whiskey Moon / Showboat / The Sun Is Like A Big Brass Band / Corn Cracker / Dance For Me, Anna Lee / With A Hickory Pole / Seesaw / The Minutes / The Rose / Across The Persian Gulf / All I Can Do Is Dance / Hip Toad
