Sealed, Out Of Print Reissue. “Despite Receiving Little To No Notice Upon Its Late-1966 Release, Light Of Day Stands As An Eclectic Breakthrough (And Only) Solo Effort From Pat Kilroy (Heard Here On Vocals As Well As Guitar, Jew's Harp, Percussion, And Electric Bass) -- Who Was Likewise A Member Of The Bay Area Duo New Age Alongside Susan Graubard. Kilroy's Highly Stylized Blend Of Acoustic Folk And Blues Is Fused With A Distinctly Eastern-Flavored Sensibility To Create An Appealing Aura Quite Unlike Most Other Mid-'60s Fare. Kudos Should Likewise Be Given To The Foresight Of The Powers That Be At The Seminal Imprint Elektra Records. Under The Direction Of The Label's Founder, Jac Holzman, They Became Renowned For Giving Unique And Deserving Talents -- Such As Those Found Here -- An Outlet. Joining Kilroy Are A Few Well-Known Names, Primarily Graubard (Flute/Glockenspiel), Stefan Grossman (Guitar), And Eric Kaz (Mouth Harp). Bob Amacker (Percussion) Is Prominently Featured On The Tabla. Although In Short Order This Popular And Distinct-Sounding Hand Drum Would Find Its Way Into More Mainstream Pop Music, Its Use Here Is One Of The First Incorporations Of The Instrument From Traditional Indian Music Into Western Culture. It Is Immediately Evident On Light Of Day's Mellow And Blithe Opening Melody, "The Magic Carpet."” – Lindsay Planer, AMG
