91 - KROG, KARIN - DON'T JUST SING: AN ANTHOLOGY 1963-1999 - (CD) 
LIGHT I/T ATTIC


The work of Karin Krog may be unfamiliar to much of the world, but in her native Norway and Scandinavia at large, shes practically a household name. This says much about the local enthusiasm for post-bop jazz but also about the tyranny of distribution: until 1994, Krogs albums werent available in the USA or UK, meaning three decades of recordings were waiting to be discovered. With this anthology of her best recordings from 1963 to 1999-curated with Krogs own input-we hope to set the record straight.

TRACKLISTING: 01. As A Wife Has A Cow 02. Lazy Afternoon 03. We Could Be Flying 04. Raindrops, Raindrops 05. Blues Eyes With Dexter Gordon 06. Ode To Billy Joe With Dexter Gordon 07. Images In Glass With John Surman 08. Tystnaden 09. Maiden Voyage 10. Just Holding On With John Surman 11. Don't Just Sing With John Surman 12. Glissando 13. Break Of Day In Molde 14. All I Want 15. Cloud Line Blue With John Surman 16. John Coltrane's "a Love Supreme"

95 - LEWIS - ROMANTIC TIMES - (CD) 
LIGHT I/T ATTIC


Earlier this year, Light in the Attic released the mysterious, bewitching LAmour, a 1983 private press record thought to be the only release by one of musics true lost talents: Lewis. Here's the labels second from this artist - rescued from obscurity!So lost, in fact, was Lewis, he eluded every effort to track him down. Scant details were known: just a series of possibly apocryphal stories about a sports car-driving Canadian with a model on his arm and a habit of skipping town when there were bills to be paid.Deciding that Lewis spider web-delicate songs demanded to be heard, Light in the Attic put the album out anyway, offering to present the due royalties to anyone who could prove they were Lewis.One sure thing was this: Lewis was a man of many names: Randall A. Wulff among them. Now Light in the Attic has either found another alias - or perhaps even his real name - on the sleeve of a completely unknown album.Sourced soon after the re-release of LAmour, Romantic Times is the 1985 follow-up to LAmour - and its released as Lewis Baloue. The name may be slightly different, but this is absolutely our man: a familiar blond posing on the sleeve, a familiar, tortured voice pouring his heart out over languid synths and synthetic waltz beats.

TRACKLISTING: 01. We Danced All Night 02. Bon Voyage 03. Don't Stop It Now 04. It's A New Day 05. So Be In Love With Me 06. Bringing You A Rose 07. Where Did My Love Go Away 08. As The Boats Go By

97 - LIFETONES - FOR A REASON - (CD) 
LIGHT I/T ATTIC


Killer punkrockdub album from 1983 finally reissued via the consistent Light In The Attic label. HUGE tip!!Political post-punk trio This Heat dissolved at a turbulent time in the UK. Margaret "The Iron Lady" Thatcher was in power, and her budget-cutting, ultra-conservative influence was felt strongly in-among many other places-the cultural melting pot of Brixton, South London, where This Heat had their origins. Dusting himself off after the collapse of the band in 1982, guitarist/vocalist Charles Bullen united with Julius Samuel to form Lifetones and embraced the sounds of the local West Indian community to fuse reggae flavor to the kind of propulsive, rhythmic, and experimental music made by This Heat.Deceit, This Heat's 1981 album, had seen them work with David Cunningham, who had already helped mesh dub reggae with new wave pop on The Flying Lizards 1979 single, "Money (That's What I Want Want)." Even so, For A Reason was a great leap, one that created a strange, unsettling mood as Bullens multi-tracked, chant-like vocals met dub beats and Krautrock-informed repetition. Where Deceit dealt with the nuclear threat, For A Reason was less reactionary, even quoting Bob Marley in its lyrics: "you love the life you live, you live the life you love."Just six tracks and half an hour long, the album was recorded at Cold Storage studio and released on Bullens own Tone Of Life Records. It has become a sought-after collectors item that changes hands for hundreds of dollars a time. As a solo artist, Bullen was not prolific-it was 15 years until, in 1998, he released Internal Clock under the name Circadian Rhythms-but like the rest of his band, he has enjoyed a long, enriching career in unending pursuit of new sounds.Even though This Heat had no commercial success to follow up on, For A Reason was an album created with no intention of hitting the charts. Reissued on Light In The Attic, Lifetones single album retains a timeless quality and perhaps-on tracks such as "Good Side"-a futuristic sound that nobody else ever caught up to.

100 - LYNN, BARBARA - HERE IS BARBARA LYNN - (LP) 
LIGHT I/T ATTIC


After 7" releases on Soul7 and Cultures of soul - Light in the attic steps up and represses her 1968 album produced by Huey P. Meaux and originally released on Atlantic Records. Check!To be a woman singing your own blues and soul songs in 1960s Texas was a rare thing. To do so while brandishing a left-handed Stratocaster and bashing out hard-edged licks was even rarer. Yet thats just what Barbara Lynn did, inspired by Guitar Slim, Jimmy Reed, Elvis Presley and Brenda Lee. And it was a hit: her 1962 debut single, "Youll Lose A Good Thing," recorded with session musicians including Dr. John, gave her an R&B chart Number One and a Billboard chart Top 10 hit.

TRACKLISTING: 01. You'll Lose A Good Thing 02. Take Your Love And Run 03. Maybe We Can Slip Away 04. Sure Is Worth It 05. Only You Know How To Love Me 06. (until Then) I'll Suffer 07. You're Losing Me 08. Sufferin' City 09. Multiplying Pain 10. Why Can't You Love Me 11. Mix It Up Baby 12. This Is The Thanks I Get

104 - MERCIER DESCLOUX, LIZZY - MAMBO NASSAU - (CD) 
LIGHT I/T ATTIC


After 1979s Press Color - reissued by Light In The Attic - Lizzy Mercier Descloux went tropical. Mambo Nassau, released in 1981 on Philips Records, saw the vagabond Parisian poet, artist and musician decamp from New York to the Bahamas with her manager and sometime lover, Michel Esteban.The effect on her music was not as expected. Press Color had been an album of dissonant, distorted disco influenced by the New York no wave scene, but Chris Blackwells Compass Point Studios provided a hermetically sealed environment into which the islands relaxed atmosphere did not seep. Instead, music from within those four walls - made by Tom Tom Club and Grace Jones - had the effect of a feedback loop. The album, meanwhile, reflected the growing confidence of Descloux as a musician, an increasing interest in African music and the input of two new collaborators: synthesizer innovator Wally Badarou and Jamaican engineer Steve Stanley, the albums de facto producer.Mambo Nassaus skip through styles is like a tour of Lizzys musical DNA, embracing not just mutant funk, disco and punk but a pastiche of Bavarian oompa music ("Milk Sheik") and even cocktail jazz chanson ("Les Baisers DAmants"), a duet with DJ Philippe Krootchey.Mambo Nassau did speak to the mavericks enamored of Lizzys free spirit but it did not sell well. "We never were commercial," notes Esteban. The album is presented now with bonus tracks including "Mister Soweto", "Corpo Molli Pau Duro" and a cover of Bob Marleys "Sun Is Shining", all of which were intended to help score a record deal that would allow her to record in Soweto, South Africa. It worked. With the follow-up, Zulu Rock, on the horizon, Desclouxs African adventure was only just beginning.

106 - MERCIER DESCLOUX, LIZZY - ONE FOR THE SOUL - (CD) 
LIGHT I/T ATTIC


By the time poet, singer-songwriter, and artist Lizzy Mercier Descloux recorded 1984s Zulu Rock, shed marked herself out as both a globe trotter with more passport stamps than Tintin and a musical innovator whose loose, arty spirit could be applied to styles as varied as no wave, Bavarian oompa and Soweto jive. Shed also established a tight-knit threesome with muse/former lover Michel Esteban and producer/on-off lover Adam Kidron, who all reunited to follow Zulu Rock - a surprise hit in her native France - with something that, once again, represented a complete about-turn.The location, this time, was Rio De Janeiro, a suitably exotic location to follow their sojourn in Soweto given that Brazil had recently emerged from twenty years of dictatorship. But unlike Zulu Rocks broad appropriation of the local sound, One For The Soul borrows very liberally from Brazilian culture. The aim, says Kidron, was to "reimagine the blues", but Lizzys musical essence was in flux.

107 - MERCIER DESCLOUX, LIZZY - ONE FOR THE SOUL - (LP) 
LIGHT I/T ATTIC


By the time poet, singer-songwriter, and artist Lizzy Mercier Descloux recorded 1984s Zulu Rock, shed marked herself out as both a globe trotter with more passport stamps than Tintin and a musical innovator whose loose, arty spirit could be applied to styles as varied as no wave, Bavarian oompa and Soweto jive. Shed also established a tight-knit threesome with muse/former lover Michel Esteban and producer/on-off lover Adam Kidron, who all reunited to follow Zulu Rock - a surprise hit in her native France - with something that, once again, represented a complete about-turn.The location, this time, was Rio De Janeiro, a suitably exotic location to follow their sojourn in Soweto given that Brazil had recently emerged from twenty years of dictatorship. But unlike Zulu Rocks broad appropriation of the local sound, One For The Soul borrows very liberally from Brazilian culture. The aim, says Kidron, was to "reimagine the blues", but Lizzys musical essence was in flux. "A Word Is A Wah" meshes reggae with her beloved accordion, "Women Dont Like Me" is wild, new wave pop, and she even wanders into soul territory, with whispery lounge versions of Al Greens "Simply Beautiful". Most notable is the albums foray into jazz, and the fact that Chet Baker, the master jazz trumpeter, blew his last on "Fog Horn Blues" and the sensuous "Off Off Pleasure".Rio was to be the last great hurrah of Lizzy and Michels global recording adventures, and although work proceeded apace, the experience was often quite tense.

108 - MERCIER DESCLOUX, LIZZY - PRESS COLOR - (CD) 
LIGHT I/T ATTIC


Lizzy Mercier Descloux may have come of age in Paris, but its in New Yorks Lower East Side that she really came alive. Great overvieuw of her work here. The French punk pioneer, a friend of Patti Smith and Richard Hell, moved to New York in 1977 and soon immersed herself in avant-garde poetry, performance art, and punk music. Closely associated with the founders of ZE Records (home to Was (Not Was) and Kid Creole & The Coconuts), Descloux released her debut album, Press Color, in 1979, revealing a punk-funk sound that positioned her as the French answer to the UK group The Slits or New Yorks own ESG.

110 - MERCIER DESCLOUX, LIZZY - SUSPENCE - (CD) 
LIGHT I/T ATTIC


By the time bohemian singer/poet/artist Lizzy Mercier Descloux recorded her fifth album, 1988s Suspense, shed enjoyed a recording career that was as far from the clichs of music lore as is possible, flitting between genres, continents and collaborators, enjoying great success and equally great failure and even stealing the final breaths of master trumpeter Chet Baker for 1986s One For The Soul. When she came to make Suspense - reissued here as the final album in this series - she was, for the first time, working without her longtime muse, partner and manager Michel Esteban, with whom shed first moved from their native France to New York, where it all began.The pressure was on to repeat the success of "Mais Oł Sont Passes Les Gazelles", a smash hit in France, and Desclouxs label were keen to make a conventional artist of her, pairing her with John Brand, an in-vogue producer with a style geared to a big, shiny 1980s chart sound-an approach Lizzy had never experienced before, nor intended to. Recorded in Oxfordshire and Wales, it features songs recorded in both French and English, with lyrics by Mark Cunningham, the trumpet player of the avant-garde band Mars, and James Reyne, the Australian artist who co-wrote much of One For The Soul.In Vivien Goldmans new liner notes, Esteban notes that Suspense sounds "less Lizzy than the other records, less open," but in splitting herself into two - English and Francophone - the album has two personalities too; oddly, it shines a light on the real Descloux that her cultural experiments never did.Though the initial aim was to make a folky, acoustic album, the pop sound suited the singer, and "A Room In New York" is as fine and sparky as AOR gets. But when early single "Gueule DAmour/Cry of Love" stiffed, EMI lost confidence and buried the LP. Bound by her contract to the label, Descloux moved away from music and focused on painting. She eventually settled in Corsica, the French island, where she died, aged 48, of cancer. Desclouxs musical career ended, therefore, with the aptly titled Suspense. It was only a matter of time before this furiously creative artists work was re-evaluated, and with these deluxe reissues, that time is now.

112 - MERCIER DESCLOUX, LIZZY - ZULU ROCK - (CD) 
LIGHT I/T ATTIC


In the course of three albums, Lizzy Mercier Descloux, the rogue poet, artist, and singer-songwriter, travelled on a musical voyage from Manhattan (1979 debut Press Color) to The Bahamas (1981 follow-up Mambo Nassau) and apartheid South Africa (1984's Zulu Rock) - a controversial cultural boycott in protest of the nation's racially divided society.One place Descloux had never visited was the pop charts, but that changed when "Mais Oł Sont Passes Les Gazelles? (Where Have The Gazelles Gone?)" - a reworking of a South African Shangaan disco hit - went all the way to the top spot in her native France, giving her a platform and a profile in the land she'd fled many years before. Recorded at Satbel Studios in Johannesburg, the album followed what her mentor Michel Esteban describes as "an extraordinary adventure" through eastern Africa following the footsteps of 19th century poet Rimbaud through Sudan, Ethiopia, the East Coast. A socially conscious person, Descloux wanted to use her music to draw some attention to the situation in South Africa, even obliquely, but there were musical motivations too - she was tapping into a hot and little-heard dance music in the aforementioned Shangaan disco, Soweto jive and mbaqanga, the style Malcolm McLaren had mined for his mash-up hit "Duck Rock" a year before.The music of South Africa seduced, subsumed, and molded Lizzy, who sounds surer and more swinging than ever before throughout Zulu Rock, but credit must also go to British producer Adam Kidron, then best known for his work with Scritti Politti, who joined Esteban and Descloux for the entire African journey. Lizzy and Adams was a battle of wills from the start, but his insistence on getting Lizzy to sing in a more conventional, tuneful way resulted in an emotional, ambitious, creative power struggle that delivered arguably her best vocals yet.In Vivien Goldman's new liner notes for this reissue, Kidron says: "My first impression of Lizzy was that she couldnt sing but that she had that crazy Madonna, Neneh Cherry, Nina Hagen attitude thing going on and a magical way with words - a marketers gift for getting to the essence of a feeling or idea." And for once, on this album, the marketing did itself.

114 - MONKS - BLACK MONK TIME - (LP) 
LIGHT I/T ATTIC


THE MONKS were five beat playing American GIs stationed in Germany who, after their discharge, decided to stay and continue their musical mission. Meeting up with a team of local managers, they transformed themselves and their sound into a holy racket like the world had never known. This five-person order literally birthed the above genres through a fuzz-drenched evolution of sound, bursting with social commentary and future primitive rhythms. Their landmark studio album Black Monk Time is packaged with numerous period photographs (many unseen) and an extensive two-part essay by Canadian music journalist KEVIN HOWES (Jamaica-Toronto series), and includes bonus material.

TRACKLISTING: 01. Monk Time 02. Shut Up 03. Boys Are Boys And Girls Are Choice 04. Higgle-dy - Piggle-dy 05. I Hate You 06. Oh, How To Do Now 07. Complication 08. We Do Wie Du 09. Drunken Maria 10. Blast Off!

The Early Years 1964-1965 contains numerous period photographs (many unseen) and an extensive two-part essay by Canadian music journalist Kevin Howes (Jamaica - Toronto series) accompanies this release and tell the Monks story like it has never been told.

116 - NATIONAL WAKE - WALK IN AFRICA 1979-81 - (CD) 
LIGHT I/T ATTIC


Reissue of music by the South African mixed-race punk band National Wake. CD housed in a deluxe gatefold tip-on jacket with 48-pg book ! The South Africa of the late 1970s was neither the right place nor time to launch a mixed-race punk band. Yet, following the student-inspired Soweto Uprising of 1976, it was also exactly the right conditions to foster a band like National Wake, one formed in an underground commune, and one whose very name exists in protest at the divisive, racist apartheid regime. National Wake released just one album, in 1981. It sold approximately 700 copies before being withdrawn under government pressure. The band subsequently disintegrated, but their influence could be traced in the racially mixed post-punk underground centered around Rockey Street in Johannesburg throughout the 1980s, their legacy transmitted through fanzines and underground cassette trading.

118 - NICHOLSON, GIMMER - CHRISTOPHER IDYLLS - (LP) 
LIGHT I/T ATTIC


Upon first glance, one could be forgiven for wondering which is the artist and which is the title of this album. Memphis' Larry "Gimmer" Nicholson still remains a great unknown today, despite his having orbited the periphery of the city's music scene since the early 60s, playing with artists ranging from Furry Lewis to William Eggleston and influencing a young Chris Bell (Big Star). Fusing classical and folk music, the sound Gimmer created for Christopher Idylls was evocative and unusual, its chiming guitars recalling the music of centuries past while also-when recorded in 1968-being quite desperately ahead of its time.The album was recorded with Terry Manning (Big Star, Led Zeppelin), who describes its creator as "one of the worlds most enigmatic people. I dont know how many people really knew him because he was such a private person, a full of love person, who had a dark side as well." The six compositions that comprise C?hristopher Idylls were composed o?ut west, Manning believes, while overlooking the Pacific Ocean. They were laid down in 1968 in four weeks of intimate sessions at Ardent Studios that saw Gimmer experiment by feeding acoustic guitars through delay pedals, layering and layering the sound live-one of the first examples of electronic repeat being used as part of the music.The album was supposed to be the first full-length LP release on Ardent Records, but there were understandable concerns about the size of audience that might be waiting for a curious instrumental album such as this. Meanwhile, Gimmer put blocks in the road himself: he didnt like the original mixes or the sleeve and eventually decided he didnt want the album released at all. He got his way but, Manning argues, the influence of those chiming guitars can be heard in the sounds floating out of Memphis in the decades that followed-especially in Big Star.Having personally played it to luminaries including Jimmy Page, Manning was frustrated he couldnt get the album to a wider audience. "It was one of the best things Ive been associated with-and it still is," he says. It was Manning who finally convinced Nicholson to release the album on CD in 1994 and who was talking about recording more with him when Gimmer passed away at just 54 years old in 2000. Now available on vinyl, it's Gimmer's time to chime-and shine-again.

119 - O.S.T. - HEARTWORN HIGHWAYS - (LP) 
LIGHT I/T ATTIC


Sometimes, a documentary maker is present at precisely the right moment to capture lightning in a bottle. It happened with essential punk doc The Decline of Western Civilization, it happened with Dylan's Don't Look Back and Chet Baker's Let's Get Lost, and it happened with 1976's Heartworn Highways.The iconic performance documentary saw filmmaker James Szalapski travel to Texas and Tennessee to capture the radical country artists reclaiming the genre via an appreciation for its heritage in folk and bluegrass and a rejection of the mainstream Nashville machine. Townes Van Zandt, Guy Clark, Steve Young, David Allan Coe, Steve Earle and many others appeared on both screen and soundtrack, where musical highlights include Clark's brilliant "Desperados Waiting For A Train", Young's stirring "Alabama Highways" and Van Zandt's emotional "Waiting Around To Die".The hard living - and hard partying - lifestyles of outlaw country's figureheads are played out on screen as we visit Van Zandt's Austin trailer, see Coe play in Tennessee State Prison, join the gang in Nashville's notorious Wig Wam Tavern and witness a liquor-fuelled Christmas at Clark's house. No wonder the film's original tagline read: "The best music and the best whiskey come from the same part of the country".Outside of a couple festival screenings, the movie remained unreleased for five years after its completion, finally hitting screens in 1981 and finding a cult audience ever since.

120 - OLDHAM, SPOONER - POT LUCK - (CD) 
LIGHT I/T ATTIC


Pot Luck is very much a record of two halves; Side A is an amalgamation of rarities penned with the likes of Dan Penn and Freddy Weller, while the B-side is a conceptual, seven-song medley covering some of the biggest hits Oldham played on, including "Cry Like A Baby," "Respect," and gospel standard "Will The Circle Be Unbroken." The sessions were largely unplanned. "We just went in," says collaborator Emory Gordy. "Thats the best way Spooner works."In 1972, the album was released and quickly sank. Before long, the Producers Workshop disbanded, too. Oldham carried on regardless, performing with The Everly Brothers, Bobby Womack, Gene Clark, Neil Young and-well, you name it.With this deluxe reissue of his solo LP, its time for Oldham to get his own dues. "I dont think anybody, anywhere, at any time, has ever heard it," he says. "Im just happy someone wants to hear it now."
