Peter Ivers - Becoming Peter Ivers
Brand new. Sealed album.
Becoming Peter Ivers tells the story of the late Peter Ivers, a virtuosic songwriter and musician whose antics bridged not just 60s counterculture and New Wave music but also film, theater, and music television.
Written and recorded in Los Angeles in the mid-to-late-1970s, Becoming Peter Ivers raises the curtain on this mischievous master of ceremonies, who, harmonica in hand, rarely missed a chance to light up an audience. Since his untimely death in 1983, Ivers’ short but storied life has been the subject of much research and remembrance. Becoming Peter Ivers is the most expansive effort yet to collect his archival recordings.
On behalf of the estate of Peter Ivers, a portion of the proceeds from this release will benefit Homeboy Industries, a rehabilitation organization run by Father Greg Boyle to assist previously incarcerated former gang members with counseling, legal services, and work training programs. Come! Mend
