Jim Sullivan
U.F.O.

Jim Sullivan was a folkie who haunted the clubs of Malibu in the early '70s but when it came to making an album produced something much more ambitious in scope. It's a deep and yearning work that has something of the Fred Neil about it - a deep listen of cosmic Americana.  Not long after it was completed Sullivan disappeared never to be found so all we have left of him is his masterpiece thankfully re-issued by Light in the Attic.

Nancy Sinatra and Lee Hazlewood
Some Velvet Morning / Tired Of Waiting For You

As duets go this is a bit of a corker - moustachioed maestro Lee Hazlewood's deep baritone trades verses with Nancy Sinatra alongside some pretty wild shifts in mood and tempo. 'Some Velvet Morning' is a legendary song, and now it comes on a limited-edition 7" backed by a cover of the Kinks' 'Tired of Waiting For You' courtesy of Light In The Attic.

Mac DeMarco / Haruomi Hosono
Honey Moon

Turns out that Mac DeMarco is a huge fan of Japanese legend Haruomi Hosono and as part of this ongoing series from Lights in the Attic has chosen to cover 'Honey Moon' in his inimitable style whilst also singing in Japanese. You'll remember this series from the time Ariel Pink covered Donnie & Joe Emerson's 'Baby' and the format remains the same here  - you get the cover on the A side and the original on the flip.

The Free Design
Sing For Very Important People

'Sing For Very Important People' is a 1970 children’s music album by sunshine-pop outfit The Free Design. Inspired by the beatific pop music of Peter, Paul And Mary. As such, this is a veritable treasure trove of twee, faintly psychedelic takes on children’s classics backed up by a handful of originals. Reissued via Light In The Attic.

Betty Davis
Betty Davis

To some of us, Betty Davis will always be a hero simply because she told Eric Clapton that she wouldn’t collaborate with him because his music was too boring. The fact that she is also one of the most important funk singers of all time only adds to her case. Here we get her eponymous, Sly & The Family Stone-backed 1973 LP reissued by Light In The Attic. Few LPs before or since have ever come close to matching the swagger on display across these tunes.

Betty Davis
They Say I'm Different

She certainly was different. Her life alone is quite the story with relationships with musicians good (Miles Davis) indifferent (Robert Palmer) and bad (Eric Clapton) but it was her incredible funk and soul voice and mesmerising live shows which made her famous. They Say I'm Different was her second album from 1974 written and arranged by herself and has been declared a classic in the intervening years. Ahead of her time in many ways and with an excellent documentary about her life doing the rounds now is the chance to (re) discover her music.

The Shaggs
Shaggs' Own Thing

The Shaggs - a band comprising four sisters from New Hampshire who absolutely could not play their instruments or sing in tune - were largely misunderstood when they arrived on the scene in the late ‘60s.  However, their ‘outsider music’ was loved by the likes of Frank Zappa, NRBQ and later Kurt Cobain. The Shaggs Own Thing was their second album which saw their sound develop and mature somewhat from their ramshackle, yet beautiful beginnings. Here, they try their hand at covering The Carpenters’ Yesterday Once More and re-record their classic, My Pal Foot Foot.

BADBADNOTGOOD / Majestics
Key To Love (Is Understanding)

With their velvety smooth back-catalogue, rich with diverse influences and top featuring guests, BADBADNOTGOOD quickly made a name for themselves since breaking onto the scene in 2010. On this 7" the Canadians collaborate with Majestics, resulting in a soul-splashed earworm hit named 'Key To Love (Is Understanding)'.

Pacific Breeze 2: Japanese City Pop, AOR & Boogie 1972-1986

As always with Light In the Attic you get carefully created compilations of sought after tracks housed in lavish packaging. This second edition of their Japanese City Pop, AOR & Boogie brings together another batch of rare tunes you won't have heard unless you were in Japan between 1972 and 1986. It's all here  - AOR, soul, funk, disco, tropicalia and everything in between for that veranda-ready playlist of rare things.

Roky Erickson & The Aliens
The Evil One

Roky Erickson is one of music's most enduring 'outsider' artists, cultivating an American version of psych-rock with his bands the 13th Floor Elevators, the Aliens and later Okkervil River as his backing band. 'The Evil One' was recorded after the time Erickson spent in a mental institution, and saw a version of Erickson led by straight-forward, plaintive rock 'n' roll heavy on horror-flick imagery. Originally released in 1981, it's now being reissued by Light In The Attic.

Hiroshi Yoshimura
Green

Hiroshi Yoshimura was an ambient music pioneer but sadly his music barely made it out of his native Japan in his lifetime. His debut album, Music For Nine Postcards, was reissued in 2017 and, along with him being discovered on YouTube, his popularity grew some 14 years after his death. Now we have his groundbreaking ambient masterpiece Green, reissued through Light In The Attic.

Nancy Sinatra
Start Walkin' 1965-1976

‘Start Walkin' 1965-1976’ is a new twenty-three-track compilation providing a detailed overview of the most prolific period of Nancy Sinatra’s career - yes, including her duets with Lee Hazlewood. All tracks are remastered from the original analogue tapes, and all versions come with a booklet containing liner notes and an interview with Sinatra herself.

Haruomi Hosono
Hosono House

The Haruomi Hosono reissue train rolls on with a new pressing of his 1973 debut solo LP courtesy of Light In The Attic. For Hosono House the Yellow Magic Orchestra architect claims to have been going for a Music From Big Pink kind of thing, and the plethora of steady rockin’ grooves testify to that. However, this being HH, there is an element of cerebral surreality that lends the record an odd charm.

Stone Crush: Memphis Modern Soul 1977-1987

Stone Crush is a new compilation that seeks to provide a detailed overview of Memphis’ soul scene between 1977 and 1987, something that’s taken a decade to accurately curate and convey by Daniel Mathis and Chad Weekley. The double-vinyl collection includes a 24-page booklet featuring unseen images and essays from Memphis soul expert Andria Lisle and writer Robert Gordon.

Even A Tree Can Shed Tears: Japanese Folk & Rock 1969-1973

This Light In The Attic compilation looks rather fantastic, historicising folk music from the tail-end of 1960s Japan. Cited as a period of growing political and cultural action amongst the country's younger demographic, Even A Tree Can Shed Tears arguably acts as a retrospective to music that was at its time unprecedented, with these artists seeking their own, particular sound through folk music.

Kearney Barton: Architect of the Northwest Sound

You may not know Kearney Barton by name but if I mention the likes of Quincy Jones, The Ventures, The Wailers, The Sonics and the Young Fresh Fellows then you might sit up and take notice. You see all of those have been recorded with this 80 year old veteran who had been recording bands for 50 years right up to his passing in 2012. This labour of love is a collection of some of the masses of tapes in his collection from local obscurities to more well known artists. Lovingly compiled by Lights in the Attic.

Jim Sullivan
If The Evening Were Dawn

Light In The Attic continue their run of Jim Sullivan releases with If The Evening Were Dawn, a previously-unreleased set of tracks taped way back in 1969. Sullivan disappeared in 1975 and has not been found since, so his music will have to do the talking for him. And what music If The Evening Were Dawn is - Sullivan’s story gives these wistful countryfied folk songs even greater power than they would have on their own terms.

Sachiko Kanenobu
Misora

Produced by Yellow Magic Orchestra’s Haruomi Hosono and originally released in 1972, Misora is the much-admired debut album from Sachiko Kanenobu, often acknowledged as Japan’s first female solo singer-songwriter. The record itself is one of the finest artefacts from the country’s folk scene, and is given a deluxe LP and CD re-issue on Light In The Attic, featuring extensive liner notes.

Rodriguez
Coming From Reality

The story of American singer-songwriter Rodriguez has been much covered over the years particularly in the Searching for the Sugarman film. His debut Cold Fact is a stone cold (fact) classic but less is known about his second (and final album to date) Coming From Reality. It again pitches Rodriquez with Dennis Coffey and features further stream of consciousness type songs that reference Bob Dylan but has a sound all of its own. 
  • Vinyl LP (LITA038LP)

Jim Sullivan
Jim Sullivan

Jim Sullivan’s eponymous sophomore LP gets a reissue courtesy of Light In The Attic. Like its predecessor UFO this 1972 joint is a set of psychedelic Americana that coalesces around Sullivan’s charismatic, Nick Drake-esque tenor. Originally released on the short-lived Playboy imprint (yes, that Playboy) Jim Sullivan would be the last many heard from the singer - three years later Sullivan disappeared in New Mexico and has not been spotted since.

Lee Hazlewood
400 Miles From L.A. 1955-56

Light In The Attic strike gold once more with 400 Miles From L.A. 1955-56. The latest record in the label’s set of Lee Hazlewood reissues might be their most impressive. Recently unearthed from the archives of Viv Records - the D.I.Y. label that Hazlewood ran before D.I.Y. labels were a thing - these early sketches, taped at home by Hazlewood, show the artist honing his practice in real-time. 400 Miles From L.A. 1955-56 contains many unreleased tracks as well as demo versions of some songs that would make it onto his debut LP Trouble Is A Lonesome Town.

Haruomi Hosono
Cochin Moon

Cochin Moon is Haruomi Hosono’s 5th solo album, inspired by a trip to India and set as the soundtrack to a non-existent Bollywood film. The record was originally released in 1978 and as such was massively ahead of its time with its manic electronic instrumentation. FFO Cluster, Aphex Twin. Artwork was provided by Tadanori Yokoo.

Lee Hazlewood's Woodchucks
Cruisin' For Surf Bunnies

Light In The Attic have been digging around in Lee Hazlewood's loft again. This time they found a tape with Woodchucks written on it. It contained a bunch of surf instrumentals Hazlewood recorded at the beginning of the ‘60s. These tracks have since been recorded by the likes of Dick Dale, The Astronauts, The Ventures and The Trashmen, among others. Hazlewood’s originals have never been released, so this is basically brand new! Cruisin’ For Surf Bunnies is available on LP and CD on Light In The Attic.

The Supreme Jubilees
It'll All Be Over

Sublime soul album reissued out of obscurity by Light In The Attic Records. The Supreme Jubilees came, made this album in 1980, and parted in 1981, leaving behind only this strikingly groovy, but also melancholy piece of work. The group’s brief lifespan, and their often morbid religious lyrical preoccupations, all points towards the veracity of that title: It’ll All Be Over.

The Kitchen Cinq
When The Rainbow Disappears: An Anthology 1965-68

The Kitchen Cinq are very much an in-the-known band, beloved by those that know, but generally lurking in the shadows, including behind frontman Lee Hazlewood’s solo career. When The Rainbow Disappears: An Anthology 1965-1968 collects the whole lot of their sparky garage-rock’n’roll, including very early, very rare stuff. On Light In The Attic.

Lee Hazlewood
Something Special

Welcome to a series of Light In The Attic reissues of the selected works of Lee Hazlewood. Something Special, his third album for MGM, is somewhat stripped back compared to the rest of the trilogy: more like a late-night bar than an epic orchestral studio. Fully remastered from the original tapes with a bonus track thrown in too.

Stephen John Kalinich
A World Of Peace Must Come

Oddball 1960's poetry record from renowned Beach Boys lyricist performing some of his very own super idealistic poetry under hazy lights. If you like spoken word stuff about world peace etc then A World of Peace Must Come is the record for you. The main draw for Beach Boys completists is that it is produced by affable harmoniser Brian Wilson who also adds some of his unique sound sorcery and proto ambient twiddles to the mix.

Chapman also discovered guitarist Mick Ronson, known for his work with David Bowie. Playing Guitar The Easy way is genuinely a tutorial record and even comes with a 20 page booklet with notation. This album is for guitar nerds and Michael Chapman Fans alike. Playing Guitar The Easy Way is available on CD.

Sing It High, Sing It Low : Tumbleweed Records 1971-1973

Here is a compilation that pulls out the forgotten highlights of the underappreciated Tumbleweed Records label, which operated for just two years between 1971 and 1973. As the name might suggest, folky americana was the focus of the label’s energies, and Sing It High, Sing It Low contains ten excellent songs from the roster. Released by Light In The Attic with their usual array of old photos and fascinating liner notes.

Carlos Erasmo
Sonhos E Memorias 1941-1972

Erasmo Carlos is a thoroughly big deal in Brazil, though somewhat lesser-known in the English-speaking world (damn the Anglophone public’s lack of enthusiasm for non-English pop!). Sonhos E Memórias 1941 - 1972 has in fact never been released outside of Brazil before, an utter shame given the smoothly funky gorgeousness that lies within. Remastered and reissued by Light In The Attic.
  • CD (LITA150CD)

Erasmo Carlos
Erasmo Carlos E Os Tremendões

Erasmo Carlos is a thoroughly big deal in Brazil, though somewhat lesser-known in the English-speaking world (damn the Anglophone public’s lack of enthusiasm for non-English pop!). But the albums now reissued by Light In The Attic are not so known even in Brazil, being the records on which Carlos indulged his interests in a variety of genres. Erasmo Carlos E Os Tremendões is a particularly groovy suite, available on CD or LP with remastered audio.

Lifetones
For A Reason

Lifetones was the post-This Heat project of Charles Bullen, in which he worked with Julius Samuel to incorporate West Indian reggae flavours into his music. It’s less bleak and out-there than This Heat, but still retains an unusual, uncomfortable edge: repetition and chants featuring heavily. Remastered reissue on Light In The Attic.

Lizzy Mercier Descloux

Arthur
Dreams and Images

Some tender thoughts and feelings from Arthur aka Arthur Lee Harper. Dreams and Images is the repressed and remastered edition of his 1968 debut release. This record is packed with Arthurs archetypal sympathetic vocals, his finger picking folksy guitar and some other instrumental bits and bobs. A wee gem of warm considered songs.

Directions To See A Ghost

Describing their music as "hypno-drone-rock'n'roll", the Black Angels actually make that brainwashing kind of psych rock where the guitars sound like a watch being dangled in front of you. 'Directions On How To See A Ghost' continues the political inclinations of the band's lyrical and sonic motifs, influenced in particular by the apocalyptic novel 'We'.
