Nick Garrie’s rare 1969 Baroque pop masterpiece The Nightmare of JB Stanislas has long been loved by psychedelic record collectors. The album’s initial release was plagued by maladies including the suicide of Garrie’s label manager, which led him to abandon the music industry, first returning to school and then managing a ski resort in the Swiss Alps. While the album brought flashes of success in Europe, including touring alongside Leonard Cohen in the mid 1980s, Garrie mostly remained largely out of sight, oblivious to Stanislas’s growing cult popularity. Re-issued by Elefant Records in 2010 with previously unreleased songs, the album’s rediscovery has prompted Garrie to return to performing for the first time in over forty years.
