Description


Margo Guryan's honeyed voice and gorgeously sweet songwriting has become a favorite of the soft-pop set. As a successful songwriter, her compositions have been recorded by the likes of Jackie DeShannon, Spanky & Our Gang, Astrud Gilberto, Claudine Longet, Oliver, Cass Elliot, Glen Campbell, Saint Etienne and Harry Belafonte. Her only solo album, the magnificent Take A Picture (featuring the hit "Sunday Mornin’"), has become a cult classic since its release in 1968, and no wonder: its combination of marvelously funky sunshine arrangements and Margo's delicious melodies are a heady combo. She's influenced everyone from the Wondermints to Belle and Sebastian to Oscar-winning screenwriter Diablo Cody (who listened to Take A Picture while writing Juno). 

At last we can hear this masterpiece in its true mono mix, once you hear it, you’ll never hear the stereo version the same again… it’s that good. 

Take A Picture blends Margo's infectious and highly intelligent songcraft with her absolutely unique voice – equal parts girl group innocence and seductive torch. One of the most endearing and delicious soft rock records from its era, this unique mono mix was previously only available as a radio station promo! 

This reissue uses the original mono reels, and was remastered by Kevin Gray at Cohearant, and pressed at Third Man.
