Rosebud

Rosebud were a determinedly democratic American quintet featuring husband and wife duo Judy Henske and Jerry Yester – creators of the delightfully odd Farewell Aldebaran (1969) – and reminiscent of Bread, John Denver and Jefferson Airplane amongst others.

Their sole, eponymous, 1971 album also had a strong gospel feel in places, which suited Judy’s massive vocal tone. The album was skillfully crafted, but probably too diverse to appeal to anyone in its entirety.

The band only played live a couple of times, which is no surprise given that by the time the album was finished, Yester and Henske had split and Henske had begun a relationship with Craig Doegre. The pair later married.
