Jim Sullivan was a folkie who haunted the clubs of Malibu in the early '70s but when it came to making an album produced something much more ambitious in scope. It's a deep and yearning work that has something of the Fred Neil about it - a deep listen of cosmic Americana. Not long after it was completed Sullivan disappeared never to be found so all we have left of him is his masterpiece thankfully re-issued by Light in the Attic.

Jim Sullivan's U.F.O. is a mighty strange yet very pleasant gem straight out of left field. The LP was originally released almost 50 years ago and didn't see much in distribution or sales. The lucky few who purchased the album found a really unusual slab of wax. Lots of surreal lyrics set to music that could be eerie, catchy, or both at the same time. That being said, the album does take a few spins to really sink in, and it is a bit of an acquired taste. Your best bet is to listen to audio samples if they're available, or check around places like YouTube.
