Is now a good time to petition all of the faithful and dedicated SlyVinyl readers to pony up some cash and buy the hardworking Sly Staff some MF-ing wax for Christmas? Â When you’re sitting down with your family for Thanksgiving dinner and your grammy asks you what you’re thankful for, you know that the first thing that pops into your greedy little heads is the loyal SlyVinyl informants that give you the news that takes away yer blues.
Now that I’ve convinced you, put me down for one subscription to Part 1 of Light in the Attic’s 2015 Subscription. Â Think back on LITA’s magnificent 2014 catalogue. Â They unearthed the mysteriousÂ Lewis‘Â second album, curated an outstanding collection of country funk tracks from decades past, brought Donnie and Joe Emerson back into the light, compiled all of Sly Stone’s short-lived Stone Flower label, put together a mind-blowing compilation of folk, rock and country music from Native American artists from 1966-1985, and on and on it goes…
Light in the Attic isn’t slowing down, and 2015 will no doubt bring more surprises and beautifully-packaged reissues. Â No matter how much you think you know about music, LITA exists to prove that you don’t know jack, jack. Â Two releases already in the works for this subscription are the no-waveÂ dazzlings of Lizzy Mercier Descloux’s 1978 albumÂ Press Color and the forgotten soulful gospel of The Supreme Jubilees.
It’s going to be a great year for you music lovers. Â LITA 4 Lyfe.
