I have long ago stated that if you only buy Light in the Attic releases then you will have one kick ass record collection.

Light in the Attic has just listed their 2013 second half subscription for sale.  You will receive the next 8 LPs released by the label and most of them will arrive on a subscriber exclusive color.

The mail order variants for the PIL and Honey Ltd releases are already sold out.  So this is your last chance to get those two on the non standard color.  It seems that LITA releases have been going fast recently, so if this peaks your interest you should hurry up and click the buy button below.


I didn’t know what genre to choose for this post.

The Details

We'd like to announce Part II of the 2013 Light In The Attic Subscription Package. There are so many good things on tap for the second half of 2013 that we've decided to change it up a bit. Your Part II subscription will exclusively feature titles released on Light In The Attic rather than a mix of our imprint labels. We're incredibly proud of what we have in store for the second half of 2013, as it's certainly some of the finest releases in our 11-year history. Below is a sneak peak at what we've got coming up. In addition to the below, your subscription will also include two gorgeous anthologies, each Double-CDs / Triple-LPs packages. It's too early to spill the beans on those but we promise you'll be happy campers. Without further adieu:

Public Image Limited - First Issue
Light In The Attic
(LITA 100 2xCD, LP+Download, Digital)

This one feels like a bit of the ol' we are not worthy. Years in the making, we're delighted to be releasing the seminal 1978 debut album from Public Image Limited. Surprisingly, after all these years, the album's never been available domestically in North America, not even back in '78. With the guidance of John Lydon, this official release features a number of PiL rarities including two stickers, various archival materials, the non-album single B-side "The Cowboy Song" and an unedited October 1978 BBC audio interview (both of which are included on the LP download card only). The LP also includes a massive fold-out poster, while both the Double-CD and LP are housed in an expanded tip-on gatefold jacket. Plus, you'll receive a PiL patch and a set of 6 PiL buttons - only available for subscribers and pre-orders.

Honey Ltd. - The Complete LHI Recordings
Light In The Attic
(LITA 102 CD, LP, Digital)

Our Lee Hazlewood Archive Series continues with the first ever anthology of soft-psych girl group the Honey Ltd. Hailing from Detroit and moving to Los Angeles in the mid-60s, the band released one album, produced by Lee in '68. The record instantly disappeared - rumored to have only pressed 50 copies and now selling on the black market for $2,000. The Complete LHI Recordings presents everything the group ever recorded. Fans of The Ronettes, The Shangri-Las and Pentangle are in for a treat - Honey Ltd's music blended social commentary with harmony-drenched, psych-soul pop. Jessica Hundley's liner notes include interviews with each band member, filling us in on a lost chapter of Hazlewood's genius. For LP subscribers, you'll enjoy a special color edition -- only available to subscribers.

Roky Erickson - The Evil One
Light In The Attic
(LITA 097 CD, 2xLP+Download, Digital)

Roky Erickson - Don't Slander Me
Light In The Attic
(LITA 098 CD, 2xLP+Download, Digital)

Roky Erickson - Gremlins Have Pictures
Light In The Attic
(LITA 099 CD, LP+7''+Download, Digital)

Celebrating a creative purple patch by a singular performer, these three solo works remain a missing jigsaw piece in the history of American rock ‘n' roll. As the core member of the 13th Floor Elevators and an undisputed pioneer of psychedelic rock, the '60s were thrilling times for Roky Erickson. His band was riding high in their native Texas and beyond, but Erickson's ‘60s ended in the stuff of nightmares as he was found with a single joint on his person. Pleading not guilty by reason of insanity to avoid prison, Roky was sent to the Rusk State Hospital for the criminally insane. Erickson's experiences in the hospital proved to be fertile inspiration for his music - on leaving, he formed the group Roky Erickson And The Aliens and with the help of Stu Cook (Creedence Clearwater Revival) recorded his finest work, available here in expanded deluxe editions, including Roky's masterpiece, 1981's The Evil One (finally featuring all 15 tracks!). All three titles are meticuously re-mastered and beautifully packaged. Joe Nick Patoski's liner notes are worth the price of admission alone. For LP subscribers, you'll enjoy a special color edition -- only available to subscribers.
