Throughout the 1980’s Kendra Smith was involved with some of the best contemporary psychedelic music to emerge from the west coast. Following stints playing bass and occasionally singing on the best works by the Dream Syndicate and Rain Parade she formed Opal with guitarist Dave Roback. After the far-out Happy Nightmare Baby and the excellent Early Recordings collection she made her solo debut in 1992 with this Eastern influenced psych/folk EP. A full-length, Five Ways of Disappearing, came out in 1995 and was disappointing only in comparison to the tripped-out sounds presented here.
