A Gift From Joe Emerson (And A Sale!)

Christmas came early in the LITA household, when a mysterious box arrived on our doorstep from Joe Emerson, of legendary duo Donnie & Joe.

Within the box there was an envelope that read “READ LETTER FIRST.” Below the letter, was a big, very worn pair of work boots.

The letter, written in a beautiful script, reads:

Nov 28th 2015

Hi Light In The Attic, 

Maybe this is a crazy idea, or maybe a good one, you can decide.

I would like to gift you my last year’s work boots for you to keep in your archives, do what you want with them. My thought was maybe you could take a picture of them and post them on your site or on Donnie and Joe’s images. It may get some interesting response or some new fans. 

I’m writing on the soles and personalizing them to you. Take care and I hope this surprise package is of some help. I know that Light In The Attic has helped me to buy a new set of work boots this year!

Under the right boot, in gold ink is written “Thanks LITA Records Joe 2015″ and under the left, ”My Boots To Yah! Emerson 2015.”

So, that was one of the coolest things that has ever happened to us.

AND, just so happens that today’s Daily Deal, as part of our holiday sale, is on Donnie & Joe’s Still Dreamin’ Wild! CDs & LPs for $5 – today only! And that includes multiple different colored wax options – light blue, red & black, and white.

Our Boots To Yah!
