The all-female band formed in San Francisco in the late ‘60s and went on to play some amazing venues, lived down the street from their buddies the Grateful Dead, and even opened up for Jimi Hendrix. But they never got to make a record, until now. Ace of Cups join host Talia Schlanger today to share stories from the Summer of Love and perform music from their new, self-titled record live.

Newly married, he and singer-songwriter Allison Moorer co-wrote several of the tracks, and she co-produced the record. They’re both in the studio today performing live, and they discuss music and commitment – Hayes shares about getting more personal in his songs compared to his earlier work, and we’ll hear about the album each released around the same time about their respective divorces before they fell in love. That’s coming up on the World Cafe, with host Talia Schlanger.
