The Best Reissues of 2017
Five favorites from this year that had a story to tell and music to back it up.
Erasmo Carlos, “Erasmo Carlos E Os Tremendões,” “Carlos, ERASMO,” and “Sonhos E Memórias 1941–1972”
Unlike his peers Caetano Veloso, Gilberto Gil, and Os Mutantes, Carlos’s music never made inroads into North American consciousness. These reissues from Light in the Attic should change that.
Lee Hazlewood, “Cowboy in Sweden” [reissue]
Much of “Cowboy in Sweden” comes across like an elegy.
Various Artists, “The Microcosm: Visionary Music of Continental Europe”
Light in the Attic’s new new-age compilation turns the beam out across the Atlantic.
Third Man Records and Light in the Attic to Release Children’s Compilation LP and Turntable
The album features Vashti Bunyan, Harry Nilsson, Nina Simone, Woody Guthrie, Jerry Garcia, Shel Silverstein, Kermit the Frog, and more.
