    • Comentando la música

In the fall of 1968, Bell Records would release singer-songwriter Margo Guryan’s debut full-length Take a Picture. Initially, the album would fail to garner much attention due to the Guryan’s reluctance to perform and promote the record. Many years later, Take a Picture would begin to gain a cult following, leading to a reissue in the early 2000s and some long overdue acclaim. In Episode 51, Guryan’s stepson Jon Rosner and Take a Picture’s producer John Hill tell the story of the late songwriter’s lone studio album, touching on her early life in Far Rockaway, Queens, her transition from the world of jazz into pop, and the magical discovery that was made after double tracking her vocals.
