Light in the Attic records are based in Seattle Washington (USA) and specialise in unearthing rare gems. "The idea was to build a label which placed as much emphasis on releasing quality reissues as it did developing new talent." - and damn good at it they have proved to be.
They've had a huge PR shot in the arm in the last year after the Rodriguez story was brought to the screen in 'Searching for Sugarman' (LITA reissued both of his albums in 2004 and 2009), they're by no means a one man roster though. They currently include; Donnie & Joe Emerson, Lee Hazlewood, Ray Stinnett (one of our favourites), Serge Gainsbourg, Michael Chapman, Shin Joong Hyun, Charles 'Packy' Axton, Jim Ford, Michael Hurley and most recently Marcos Valle.
They are also well know for their annual record store road trips… now that was going to go down well with us!

LP features 180g wax, liner notes, lyrics and original gatefold art in stunning die-cut, fold-out, tip-on sleeve.
CD release includes deluxe booklet and three bonus tracks recorded in Detroit in 1972 with "Cold Fact" collaborators Mike Theodore and Dennis Coffey.
Back in 1971, "Coming From Reality" was Rodriguez's last gasp, the follow-up to "Cold Fact" and the final album he was allowed to record for the Sussex label. Unearthed, once again, by Light In The Attic Records, it's another treat for fans new and old, designed - at the time - as Rodriguez's vision of a perfect pop album. "Coming From Reality" found Rodriguez decamping from Detroit to London's Lansdowne Studios, where the album was recorded with some of the UK's top talent including Chris Spedding (Dusty Springfield, Harry Nilsson) and producer Steve Rowland (The Pretty Things, PJ Proby and the man who discovered The Cure), who recalls "Coming From Reality" as his favourite ever recording project. Highlights include the super-poppy "To Whom It May Concern", the "Rocky Raccoon"-inspired "A Most Disgusting Song" and period piece "Heikki's Suburbia Bus Tour".
