Zuider Zee

Some of that fiddledy-diddledy-dee stuff from the 70s here. Zuider Zee, which by all means is a name for a band, were one of the groups who were put out of their misery by punk. Zeenith (for God’s sake) is their follow-up to an eponymous 1975 LP - which was previously the only ZZ record out there - and it has foun...view item »

Coming From Reality

As soon as my wife to be heard the second song she turned my stereo off. Fortunately, I do happen to have some taste and could clearly recognise from the first song, Climb up on my Music, that this Rodriguez guy (whoever he is) was definitely worth a cheeky little listen when nobody was looking. And I have to admi...view item »

Michael Chapman
Fully Qualified Survivor

If anyone could be described as a Fully Qualified Survivor it's Michael Chapman. He can't have known that though when he recorded this album in 1970. This one showcases Chapman's acoustic troubadour side with a series of British folk rock that is up there with the best of the genre. Also features an early appearance from Mick Ro...view item »

Lee Hazlewood
The Very Special World Of Lee Hazlewood

Welcome to a series of Light In The Attic reissues of the selected works of Lee Hazlewood. At once fully commercial and slightly odd, Hazlewood is well represented by 1966’s The Very Special World of Lee Hazlewood, which includes the biggest hit he ever wrote in ‘These Boots Are Made For Wal...view item »

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

The front cover for ‘Even a Tree Can Shed Tears’ says quite enough. An urban scene of trams and cars and trains polluted further by the rising buildings they’re getting people to… all of it covered up by one really great tree. As the notes to this Light in the Attic comp suggest, folk music was at this time a rejection o...view item »

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

We all know that to be a band in the '60's you had to have some kind of play on words going on. The Kitchen Cinq were no different and were amongst a host of bands (including The Intyrnet and The Vydeo Recorders) who had absolutely no hits whatever. So why on earth is this getting a re-issue? Well, their frontman was a pre-moustachio'd ...view item »

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 thro...view item »

Lucio Battisti
Amore E Non Amore

Amore E Non Amore is probably Lucio Battisti’s finest achievement, a concept record that combined his popular appeal with rock crunch some bold proggish instrumentals. Battisti really goes for it in the vocal department too! 1971 album remastered and reissued on 180g vinyl by Light In The Attic....view item »

Lagniappe Sessions Volume 1

The Lagniappe Sessions is work of the Aquarium Drunkard show, inviting favourite bands in to cover some favourites of their own.

Lee Hazlewood

Compared to the intimate reflections of his own country compositions, Lee Hazlewood turned his enigmatic presence to the songwriting of others on Forty.

Lee Hazlewood
Requiem For An Almost Lady

Lee Hazlewood & Ann-Margret
The Cowboy & The Lady

There’s no shortage of gold dust Americana for Light In The Attic to mine from the long and winding catalogue of Lee Hazlewood, but one of the easiest picks must have been this perfect pairing with Ann-Margaret Olsson. Released in 1969, this full-bodied, red-blooded record veers from fiery acid rock to sou...view item »

1992 - 2001

Despite being asked to tour with the likes of Oasis, Mazzy Star, The Verve, and Spiritualized, Acetone never quite made it and tragically singer Richie Lee committed suicide in 2001. It's easy to see why they didn't hit pay dirt though. Their music is quiet, intimate and swings in a jazzy manner but lacks the emotional power of a ...view item »

I Am The Center: Private Issue New Age In America, 1950-1990

Now if you’re a regular visitor to our site you’ll know that our reviewing style is very much of the quick first impression variety rather than a detailed analysis on account of about 200 records coming out every week and our humble little army of men, ladies and droids desperately trying to figure out what’s worth talking abou...view item »

Mark Lanegan
Has God Seen My Shadow? An Anthology 1989-2011

This is a wonderful anthology of Mark Lanegan's solo albums and it also features 12 previously unreleased tracks. As for the track selection, the tracks chosen are his more mellow, quiet and elegant songs. None of his more rockin' or experimental tracks are featured on this compilation. I think the tracks chosen, and their unusual placement in n...view item »

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 ...view item »

Lynn Castle
Rose Colored Corner

As a remastered compendium of Lynn Castle's unreleased works, this forgotten slice of 1960s gold has finally been resurrected into a Trump-dominated, social media ruled age it could never have foreseen.

Michael Chapman
Playing Guitar The Easy Way

Michael Chapman is a folk guitarist of some repute. So much so, his work is frequently mentioned in the same breath as Bert Jansch, Roy Harper and John Martyn. Chapman also discovered guitarist Mick Ronson, known for his work with David Bowie. ...view item »

Erasmo Carlos
Carlos, ERASMO

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 ...view item »

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.

This Record Belongs To ___

This Record Belongs To _____ is a children’s record for parents who think it extremely important that their young ones start appreciating vinyl as soon as possible (no surprise then, that Jack White’s Third Man Records is behind it). However, the tracklisting, including Carole King, ...view item »

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...view item »

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!).

The Shaggs
Philosophy of The World

The Shaggs were a group of sisters from New Hampshire who in 1969 gave the world exactly what it didn't want to hear at the time which was an album of proto DIY pop which somehow paved the way for everything that came later and particularly preceded the work of Daniel Johnston, ...view item »

Honey Ltd
The Complete LHI Recordings

Johnnie Frierson
Have You Been Good To Yourself

Johnnie Frierson was in the 60’s Stax soul crew The Drapels and is brother to Wendy Rene, but his own personal music was not so much about making people dance as about making them pray. Have You Been Good To Yourself is a set of heartfelt intimate gospel songs, recorded at home an...view item »

Bernard Purdie

1974’s Lialeh is regarded as “the first major black porn movie”, and who are we to disagree? With a film like that to accompany, it should be no surprise that the original soundtrack, by Bernard Purdie, is some of the sexiest, funkiest material you ever heard. I mean, these are literally porn grooves. ...view item »

Heartworn Highways – Original Soundtrack

The documentary film Heartworn Highways and its soundtrack perfectly captures the time when country troubadours Townes Van Zandt, Guy Clark and Steve Earle, among others, began to wrestle the credibility of country music back from the shiny over-production that was going on in Nashville...view item »

For A Reason

This is great. It is the project Charles Bullen did after the dissolution of the legendary This Heat. It is the sort of album which gives a good name to the word "fusion". It's like a happy, joyful This Heat. 'Good Side' is an absolute corker of a track that sounds like 'Remain In Light' era ...view item »

Gimmer Nicholson
Christopher Idylls

There is a lesson in here somewhere to all self doubting musicians. Just publish and be damned. Larry 'Glimmer' Nicholson made this gorgeous shimmering album of guitar instrumentals in 1968 but lost his nerve amid record company tensions about who would actually listen to it. It was finally released in 1994 before Nicholson passed away in 2000....view item »

Lizzy Mercier Descloux
Mambo Nassau

Lizzy Mercier Descloux was a singer, songwriter and performer who buzzed around the fringes of numerous crucial areas during her adventurous career.

Spooner Oldham
Pot Luck

Spooner Oldham released his one and only solo album back in 1972. The man wrote songs and played keys for a wide variety of classic soul artists, but this is the only opportunity to hear him take centre stage. God knows why, as he sounds very comfortable there. Pot Luck is fully remastered and reissued by Light In The A...view item »

The City
Now That Everything's Been Said

We all know Carole King from ‘Tapestry’ and the various songs she wrote for other people in the '60's (many in tandem with former hubby Gerry Goffin) you know...‘Pleasant Valley Sunday’ and that lot.  Less is known is about her pre-solo years band, The City.    Joining a ...view item »

Lizzy Mercier Descloux
Press Color

Lizzy Mercier Descloux did an excellent thing in 1979, releasing a record that mirrored her journey from Paris to Lower East Side NY by putting a tight no wave rhythm section beneath a version of slick French song. Press Color is that record, and it is a firmly compelling listen. Reissued at last, in remastered form, by...view item »

Karin Krog
Don't Just Sing – An Anthology: 1963-1999

Dreams and Images

For me, you can keep your noise, your weird, discordant music, your beatery, your shrill modern day production techniques. The music I actually like seems to eminate from the 1960’s whether by age or by influence. The world is a dastardly place right now and one of the few ways to escape is into something peaceful gentle. Perfect f...view item »

Romantic Times

When I wrote the description of this I was at a point in my life where I was doubting the myth around this Lewis feller and suspected it was a hoax. It’s not though, it’s quite unbelievably true and he’s been found, suave as ever in a Canadian backwater refusing royalty cheques from the label. ‘L’Amour&rsquo...view item »

Sly Stone
I'm Just Like You: Sly's Stone Flower Power 1969-70

He's just like us, except for he actually has hair, and can play instruments well. 'I'm Just Like You: Sly Stone's Flower Power' celebrates the second era of the master's career, after leaving the Family Stone for a solo career that explored the electronic expansions of funk music, using a wide variety of instruments and programmed drum machines...view item »

Donnie & Joe Emerson
Still Dreamin' Wild : The Lost Recordings 1979-81

I may be misguided here but I’m going to lay the blame for the current fetish for unearthing lost private-press records right at the door of Donnie and Joe Emerson. Well, not them as such but the industry that has grown up around the unearthing of their ‘Dreamin’ Wild’ album. It seems anyone who recorded an album ...view item »

Wheedle’s Groove - Seattle Funk, Modern Soul & Boogie: Volume II 1972-1987

It should be common knowledge that you can never have too much 70s and 80s funk & soul in your music collection. We realize only too well, and so do the kind folks at Wheedle’s Groove - they’re here to help you get down and get with it. Maybe send them a thank you note for this voluptuous collection of Seattl...view item »

Peter Walker
"Second Poem To Karmela" Or Gypsies Are Important

Here's a reissue of Peter Walker's mysterious second LP of twangy guitar and sitar and sarod drones. It's very hard to describe. Sort of new-agey but very fast paced and freeformed and not always particularly relaxing. He's accompanied in his adventure by a violin, a tabla and a flute, joining together to make a big bubbly celebratory noise in s...view item »

The Brothers & Sisters
Dylan's Gospel

I'm enjoying an uplifting start to the day courtesy of this superb reissue on Light in the Attic. The concept is pretty self-explanatory - a team of LA's finest session singers brought together by producer and visionary Lou Adler and given rousing gospel arrangements by Motown legend Gene Page. The album has languished in collector obscurity for...view item »

Robbie Hill's Family Affair
Gotta Get Back: The Unreleased L.A. Sessions

Originally recorded in Los Angeles in January 1975, these five tracks were all but lost in the ether. Light In The Attic continues the fine tradition for essential reissues with the Seattle soul of Robbie Hill’s Family Affair. It’s sweet, funky and beautifully mixed to show the band at their best. Out on vinyl LP lim...view item »

National Wake
Walk In Africa

Here’s a name I’ve never heard before. National Wake were active in South Africa from 1979 until 1981, a mixed race punk band in apartheid South Africa, they were mired in controversy and their album was pulled by the government after selling a measly 700 copies. I don’t want to go too far into their history and background beca...view item »

Lee Hazlewood
The LHI Years: Singles, nudes And Backsides (1968-71)

Mustachioed cheese-dog Lee Hazlewood is best known for his collaborations, noteably with Nancy Sinatra. Here he is performing Nancyless, but there are still plenty of duets to croon along to. His eerie barritone voice and oddball production brings comparisons with Serge Gainsbourg, but he's all about the pop, albeit serious pop. And weird record...view item »

The Black Angels
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 no...view item »
