Ed Askew (born 1940) is an American painter and singer-songwriter who first recorded in 1968 and now lives in New York City. Born Edward C. Askew in Stamford, Connecticut, he moved to New Haven, Connecticut, to study painting at Yale School of Art in 1963 and took up, more or less, permanent residence there until leaving for New York in 1987. After graduating from art school in 1966, Askew was called up for the draft
Ed Askew's 1968 debut, Ask the Unicorn, remains one of acid-folk's farthest-out relics, the product of a freshly blown mind working his way through big cosmic questions. Just what happened between Little Eyes and 1984's Imperfiction is a bit unclear; lots of wandering, some painting, and little in the way of music-making.
An album is a collection of audio recordings issued as a collection on compact disc (CD), vinyl, audio tape, or another medium. Albums of recorded music were developed in the early 20th century as individual 78-rpm records collected in a bound book resembling a photograph album; this format evolved after 1948 into single vinyl LP records played at 33 1⁄3 rpm. Vinyl LPs are still issued, though album sales in the 21st-century have mostly focused on CD and MP3 formats.
