The New Dawn's "There's A New Dawn" has been hailed as one of the rarest and best psych albums to come out of the late 60s / early 70s.

Fuzz guitar, minor-chord organ dirges, tender vocals and monumental bass are the calling cards of this private press gem.

Maybe it's all the rain, but like their Northwest counterparts, The New Tweedy Brothers and The Sonics, The New Dawn helped to establish a regional musical perspective that is hauntingly addictive.

Initially released in July of 1970, five hundred copies were pressed. Subsequently, auctions on Ebay for an original vinyl LP go for $2000.

After being highly sought after by collectors, we are proud to release this definitive reissue, produced in close collaboration with Dan Bazzy, singer, songwriter, and founder of The New Dawn.

Also included are three previously unreleased 1971 demos and a live track from a 2008 band reunion.
