about

The first, artist authorized reissue of Ilian's sole album, Love Me Crazy. Existing outside the celebrated circle of private press classics of late ‘70s America, Illian steers honest pop and progressive moods along the coast of California where Love Me Crazy was conceived.

Track Name: Hey Denise
Hey Denise my lovely sister
All the boys want to be your babysitter
So lift yourself and continue to shine
And tell all the boys to wait in line
I'll be there to help ya
And find the one that will make you happy, yeah
And don't go jumpin' for the kid named Snappy

I'll be there to help ya
I'll be there to help ya

Hey Denise with your big brown eyes
You can do anything if you try
Well I'm not waiting in line to wait for you
So kick back honey and let it come true

I'll be there to help ya
To find the one that will make you happy, yeah
And don't go jumpin' for the kid named Snappy

I'll be there to help ya
I'll be there to help ya

And find the one that make you happy, yeah
And don't go jumping for the kid named Snappy
Track Name: See What You See
The mirror on the wall is eight miles tall
And I do, do say all in all
Minds work images of their own revolution, yeah
There must be a way now
Through all this talk confusion
So don't you bust that fast
'Cause there'll be blindin' flash
Of seven tall years hangin', yeah

So maybe all the superstitions
Like a simple connection
Of your education
Which may be false deception
You can look back to see
Just what went wrong
It'll only take up time
And again you'll find
That your mind's revolution
Is the same evolution
Which is, which is old old news, yeah
Track Name: Love Me Crazy
Say lady, love me crazy
That's how I know you're mine
I'll be good to you
Love me through and through
Give you everything that's fine

Hey lady, oh love me crazy
I love you, I love you
As days make changes
And life passes by
Seems funny, hey hi honey
Get their way and I don't even try

Hey lady, oh love me crazy
I love you, hey I love you

Say lady, love me crazy
That's how I know you're mine
I'll be good to you
Love me through and through
Give you everything that's fine

Hey lady, oh love me crazy
I love you, hey I love you
Track Name: Saturday Song
Singing wind blows along the distant shore
Sailboats sailin' atop the ocean floor
Led by fifteen birds swimming on their way
Things that make me feel the way I do today

And I'm just wondering all about the lord
And how he sees his quiet distant shore
Does he still feel peace in the open sound
Will he will relieve the pain of tired battle ground

Will the world ever end the bitterness and suffering it sees
Like rain minstrels on the sea of company by harmony
And singing song of joy so peacefully

Watching waves curl the white wash of the sea
Ringing thunder sounds that shake the earth around me
Never once, ever once can one be the same
As next my lord you've made it very plain

Will the world ever end the bitterness and suffering it sees
Like rain minstrels on the sea of company by harmony
And singing song of joy so peacefully
Track Name: There Ain't No Love
It's a silent day
Seems everyday
It's the silence that speaks at the volume of the spare
And I only feel abuse
Stinging and ringing through and through
There ain't no love
Just the front of all those nice clean friendly smiles
There ain't no love

It's the way for the change
Everyone's saying
I'll help you tomorrow or the beginning of the week
I don't wanna hear another sound

It's a silent day
Seems everyday
And I only feel abuse
There ain't no love, joker
There ain't no love

I guess if I had a friend, I'd know it
Had lots once
No I thought once
Time made that change
Or I found a range
All those jokers

Silent day I wish could float away
Maybe someday
There ain't no love
Track Name: Lovely Lady
And of all of things around me
That time again are on my mind
Happenings had changed my life
Happenings had make it right

Lady, lady, lady in the lazy desert
Lady, lady stay by my side
All of the while you're here
There's love you can't hide

And the times we'd known together
That time again are on my mind

Dashing, thrashing whirlwinds changed my life
Suddenly and made her right

Lady, lady, lady in the lazy desert
Lady, lady stay by my side
All of the while you're here
There's love you can' hide

And the love that the beauty
Walking softly covered me
Knowing frills that make it cold
Just the love of shining shining gold

Lady, lady, lady my little lady
Lady, lady stay by my side
All of the while you're here
There's love you can't hide
Track Name: Tell Me
If you're rolling on a western rolling bay
And you happen to see my lovely lady
Please see for me if she's true
Like an orange blossom breeze
You know you know for sure
If she smiles and says I can't concern

'Cause all that is is on my mind
I wake up to love her certainly fine
She's two thousand miles and it's blowing my mind

Now I have a place where everything's green
Where there's a river of cotton
Flowing gently towards an open dream
So much space but not a single trace
Of my lady's pretty face
I know no one could ever take my place

Now I have a place where everything's green
Where there's a river of cotton
Flowing gently towards an open dream
So much space but not a single trace
Of my lady's pretty face
I know no one could ever take my place
