The history of rock music is filled with one-hit wonders and debut albums left without a follow-up. Most of those just had the fate they deserved, some were the results of early disbanding or mismanagement. Linda Perhacs' Parallelograms belongs to none of those categories. The singer/songwriter spent all her inspiration on this gem, simple as that. It sits there on the shelf, a life's compendium, stunning in its beauty and the fact that no later albums can frame it in a historical context, or diminish its impact. Softer, less declamatory than Joan Baez, more daring than Joni Mitchell, Perhacs' songs are psychedelic on a daily, domestic basis. Originally released in 1970, the album had been lifted from the LP and reissued on CD by The Wild Places in 1996. The label was finally able to locate Perhacs after the CD was released. In 2003, a new, expanded edition of Parallelograms came out. Remastered from the original master tapes, it sports a much better sound, warmer and with more of that psychedelic reverb. It also includes six bonus tracks: a previously unknown song, "If You Were My Man" (in both demo and completed versions, this song was left off the album), a take of "Hey, Who Really Cares" with a sound collage intro, and two demo versions of "Chimacum Rain." Informed by the female singer/songwriters of the late '60s, and the sonic experiments of the West Coast psychedelic scene (just listen to the title track, its abstract lyrics and beautiful, intertwined atonal melodies), Perhacs has created 40 minutes of music out of time.
