Donnie & Joe Emerson’s hypnotic Dreamin’ Wild has been on heavy rotation here at MOJO. And rightly so. – MOJO Magazine
It’s official, available today the world over, Donnie & Joe Emerson’s Dreamin’ Wild, and is something special. In it, Donnie & Joe made an album that is a study in isolation and creativity. Originally released in 1979, Dreamin’ Wild is the sonic vision of the talented Emerson boys, recorded in a family built home studio in rural Washington State. Situated in the unlikely blink-and-you-missed-it town of Fruitland and far removed from the late 1970s punk movement and the larger disco boom, Donnie and Joe tilled their own musical soil, channeling bedroom pop jams, raw funk, and yacht rock.
