Henry Jacobs

On May 17th Important Records is releasing a CD/DVD package The Wide Weird World Of Henry Jacobs/The Fine Art Of Goofing Off by Henry Jacobs curated and produced by Jack and Alex Artaud.
This project grew out of several gatherings in Mill Valley, CA and Point Reyes, CA over the course of a couple of years. Conceived as a radio program, the CD was compiled, edited and mastered by Jack Dangers as a journey through the found archive of unreleased tapes by Henry Jacobs.
The DVD contains three 30-minute programs, The Fine Art of Goofing Off, a collaboration of experimental and playful animation between Jacobs and artist Bob McClay, produced in the early 70's for broadcast on San Francisco public television station KQED. Literally saved from the dustbin by McClay, this is first commercial release of these programs.
