  2. Essra Mohawk’s album Primordial Lovers was released in May 1970 via Reprise Records and on AllMusic Charles Donovan said, “Primordial Lovers is assured of its status as an unsung classic. All who hear it, and there aren’t enough, are bewitched by its esoteric poetry, unguarded passion, and great tunes…. Mohawk is a wondrous creature of contrasts: simultaneously urbane and nature-loving, knowing and naïve, all-powerful yet unabashedly vulnerable at the same time. Her voice is a remarkable instrument…”
