We’ll bet all of you were starting to wonder, “hey, what’s Light In The Attic got up their sleeve for Record Store Day?”. Well, no more sleepless nights tossing and turning in constant anticipation…here’s a sneak peek at our Record Store Day 2012 (April 21) releases. Stay tuned next week for in-depth info about each release plus those snazzy “What’s Inside?” videos showing off these two glorious sets. But for now, let’s just say that we are very, very, very excited to share these with you all.

With his handlebar moustache and booming baritone, Lee Hazlewood was one of the defining stars of the late ‘60s. Though he’s perhaps best known for his work with Nancy Sinatra (including writing mega-hit “These Boots Are Made For Walking”), Hazlewood did stunning work away from that particular glamour queen and found latter day champions in Beck, Sonic Youth, and Jarvis Cocker. Now, for Record Store Day 2012, we are kicking off our excavation of the Lee Hazlewood archives with this anthology, Singles, Nudes & Backsides, collecting the best of Lee’s solo songs and duets from his LHI (Lee Hazlewood Industries) imprint. 2xLP housed in a deluxe gatefold Stoughton “tip-on” jacket, includes 8-page book-deep liner notes and OBI card. CD version available 4/25. Wonder what’s behind that OBI card? Guess you’ll have to wait to see…
