Al Manfredi, born in Los Angeles to a musical family of Italian immigrants, found regional success with his garage rock band Lost & Found while still a teenager in the small SoCal beach town of San Clemente. The tragic deaths of two of the band’s members in the late 60s shook Manfredi to his core. He gave up the band scene completely, retreating to his family’s music store and working on his music in private, multi-tracking demos of growing prowess and slipping in and out of addiction.

In 1973 he chose six of his favourite songs and exactingly produced and recorded an album, which he custom-pressed in minute quantities. His dreams of securing a record deal faded, but he spent the rest of his life bringing children into the world, surfing, teaching music, and recording his original songs.

This little-known West Coast rock masterpiece was rediscovered and celebrated by Acid Archives founder Patrick Lundborg and others around the time that Manfredi died in 1995. This version of the album, overseen by Manfredi’s son Exile, and with Manfredi’s story told by Ugly Things’ founder Mike Stax, presents the complete package of an incredible lost and found artist.
