Hands down one of my favorite artists! Gary Wilson is a experimental muscian/performance artist who has built a rabid cult following since releasing his groundbreaking album "You Think You Really Know Me" in 1977. He lapsed into obscurity from the public eye until the late 90s, when Beck was heard citing him as an influence, most notably in his hit single "Where It's At". He released a new full length on Stones Throw records in 2004 titled "Mary Had Brown Hair." I got in touch with Gary awhile ago over email and was able to purchase two early and rare 7 inches from him. Both 7 inches below were limited to 500 copies. Be sure to check out Gary's site at http://www.sixpointfour.com and buy some of his full length records.
GARY WILSON - "This Is Why I Wear My Wedding Gown" 7 inch (1978)
