The Fool - The Fool 1969 LP, Mercury Records [SR 61178] The Fool came to London in the early '60s from Amsterdam as designers, and were asked by Beatle manager Brian Epstein to style his clients in the new Psychedelic fashions, everything from the painted guitars and flamboyant clothes sported by Cream on their first US tour to psychedelic cars for the stars and the mural on The Apple Boutique - which also showcased their fashions. Their album sleeves for Jimi Hendrix, the Move and The Incredible String Band among others, remain classics. And, yes, they even made an album! Produced by Graham Nash on the cusp of leaving the Hollies (who The Fool also did sleeves for!) and engineered by Hendrix soundmaster Eddie Kramer, the album is a shock! This is a tour de force of Wyrd Folk ala groups like the Incredible String Band and Dr. Strangely Strange. Although the album was reissued on CD in 2005, original LP copies are VERY RARE!
