Andrew Loog Oldham talks about John Idan - see 'Reviews' page!
There's more to this than we know... I'm listening to whispers from the Garden of Idan, -it's pretty transportative, somehow I get echoes of temple Krishna and
columns of 10 mile willows that no longer sway in the orthodox neighborhood but serenely stand in the shadows of our shared dreams where we all belong. And then there's definitely Anthony Kaedis
or maybe it's closer to the source, could be George Clinton himself sneaking through the Kali Yuga. Man, there's a strong strain of the Isleys running thru this too along with the other George in
the temple. And as for the long time we've been on this road, don't hold your breath, we've only just begun...
