Among the genuinely strange character types of pre-rock American popular music, Eden Ahbez’s primary claim to popularity was because the author of “Character Young man.” The melodically and lyrically beguiling track was an enormous pop strike for Nat Ruler Cole; it might be included in many other trustworthy performers, including Frank Sinatra, John Coltrane, Sarah Vaughan, and the fantastic Society (Elegance Slick’s pre-Jefferson Aircraft music group). But Ahbez’s contemporary stature rests on a 1960 recording that combined exotica recording and beatnik poetry. It prices among the goofiest attempts within the goofy exotica genre — and sibling, that’s stating something, provided the stiff competition. Ahbez boasted a resumé as vibrant and mystical as his music. Given birth to Alexander Aberle in Brooklyn in the first 20th hundred years, he transformed his name within the 1940s soon after shifting to (where else?) California. A hippie an excellent twenty years before his period, he cultivated a Christ-like appearance along with his shoulder-length locks and beard. He stated to go on three dollars weekly, sleeping outdoors along with his family members, consuming vegetables, fruits, and nut products. Ahbez’s big achievement was obtaining Nat Ruler Cole to record “Character Young man,” after diligently pestering a few of Cole’s affiliates in the Mil Dollar Theatre in LA, where Cole was carrying out. A number of the luster was removed that triumph whenever a posting company stated that Ahbez experienced taken a number of the lyrics from “Character Boy” in one of the copyrights, the Yiddish track “Schweig Mein Hertz” (the celebrations reached an out-of-court arrangement). Ahbez do have the ability to place another melody with Cole, “Property of Like (Arrive My Like and Live With Me).” Within the mid-’50s, he do some documenting with jazz musician Plant Jeffries; he also do some periodic composing and performing, sometimes for rock and roll & move novelty information. His most extensive statement like a documenting artist, nevertheless, was the 1960 LP Eden’s Isle, which wedded Martin Denny-style exotica to Ahbez’s near-stereotypical beatnik poetry. Nat Ruler Cole, for just one, stated that Ahbez’s hippie-mystical picture was no action. That doesn’t imply that his desert-island heaven trip doesn’t audio darned silly today. It had been ripe for revival by space age group pop aficionados within the 1990s, nevertheless, and reissued on Compact disc in 1995. Ahbez was photographed with Brian Wilson within the studio room in 1966, financing additional credence to the idea that the top Seaside Boy was affected by exotica through the Family pet Seems and Smile classes. Ahbez passed away in 1995 after a car accident.
