    An attic as sweet as apples coated with honey.

    I still remember when a friend dubbed me a cassette of the 1st Sonic album in the mid 90′s. The sound of that record just amazed me and that record became my reference of what a garage-soul record should sound like. +/- 15 years later, I still consider that the music recorded by the Sonics with K. Barton is way up there. I Would definitely like to find more about the Sir by listening to this great package.

    really look up to what you guys are doing. bring back records that would never dream of seeing the light of day
    also helped me find one of my favourite records! (Jim Sullivan’s UFO)

    also loved the WG compilation, makes me wish I was born 30 years earlier

    keep it up!

    There’s nothing like a pipe loaded with LITA gems…

    Now that’s a prize pack.

    Free Basin’ Friday rules. I want to win the Wheedles Groove pack!


  7. Phil says:

    My how I love you guys. Thanks for all the great music.

    Hello LITA people,

    I discovered your blog via your Rodriguez releases way back in 2009. I purchased several items from your catalog since then. I recently switched to buying LPs instead of CDs, so I have duplicates of almost every LITA release now. They are just so beautiful and lovingly packaged, I don’t have the heart to sell or give away any of them.
    Keep up the good work.
    Also props to this Free Basin’ thing!
    I hope I win.

    Came of age in the mid-70s and considered myself a walking music encyclopedia (and Bullets fan dating to the days when Earl, Honeycomb & Dancin’ Harry roamed the Civic Center). Stumbled across LITA’s reissue catalog, though, and realized my self-designation was one of folly mixed with vanity. Sorta like I’m sure Jack Sikma feels these days about the greasy, fly-away hair he sported when posting up for that shambolic (but indefensible, dammit) turnaround baseline jumper of his.

    I’m spinning my first set Friday afternoon next week! Love to spin some soul nuggets that still have that brand new ’45 smell (hint hint).

    throwing my hat in the ring.

    I want to go for the pity ‘vote’ here, but am not entirely sure of how to go about it other than to say, I’m from Australia. Australia! Worse still, it’s the back end of Australia (imagine how much I’ve spent on shipping records over the years … speaking of which, I’d happily pay for shipping were I to win this prize; just sayin’). We’re not getting a whole lot of funk and soul out where I’m from and that hurts…

    As a sort of plan-B, I’ll also appeal to your vanity (it works when people do it to me) by offering a thank you for the wonderful work everyone at Light in the Attic Records is doing, not only in regards to the music being released, but also the research, creativity and passion that goes into each of your projects. Seriously, it’s hugely appreciated.


  13. James K says:

    It seems I can’t pay attention to dates. Apparently, we’re just that far behind in Australia. My bad and massive apologies.
