RHINO HANDMADE AND LIGHT IN THE ATTIC RECORDS
First Releases Include Deluxe Editions Of Debut Albums From Tim Buckley And Ride Available October 4th and Oct. 18th
LOS ANGELES – Rhino Handmade, an imprint of Rhino Entertainment, has announced an innovative partnership with Seattle-based label/distributor Light In The Attic Records. Under this new partnership, Light In The Attic will take select Rhino Handmade titles, previously available exclusively at rhino.com, to retail outlets and also offer them on their website (www.lightintheattic.net). The partnership begins with the deeply expanded debut albums from ‘60s art-pop singer-songwriter Tim Buckley and timeless psychedelic shamans Ride. Handmade titles will continue to be available exclusively at Rhino.com for the first 60 days of release prior to Light In The Attic distributing them exclusively to retail.
The partnership between Rhino Handmade and Light In The Attic is a match made in music heaven as both labels work tirelessly to comb the vaults and deliver uniquely crafted releases of some of the greatest (and often times lost, obscure, or forgotten) music masterpieces from the past to music connoisseurs and collectors.
Rhino Handmade has been mining the Warner Music archives for over a decade to curate unprecedented collections of rare, out-of-print, and previously unreleased material from such beloved acts as Aretha Franklin, The Doors, Wilson Pickett, The Stooges, and The Monkess while also shining a spotlight on incredible, overlooked artists such as The Beau Brummels, Bettye Lavette, Doug Sahm, and Tony Joe White.
Light In The Attic is known for posh CD and 180 gram vinyl runs of crate-digging classics like the first two Karen Dalton albums, the exclusive re-release of the highly coveted and controversial concept LP Historie de Melody Nelson by Serge Gainsbourg, as well as his seductive collaboration with Jane Birkin on Je T’aime …; Betty Davis’s full soul-punk canon, Sixto Rodriguez’s psych-folk masterpiece Cold Fact, and a generous collection of early Kris Kristofferson demos.
