MC Taylor recorded his spiritually devastating, austere antecedent to the widely celebrated Hiss Golden Messenger albums 'Haw' (2013) and 'Poor Moon' (2011) direct to a portable cassette recorder at the kitchen table of his pine-entwined home in rural Piedmont, North Carolina in 2010. Three years after the destruction of much of the first, CD only edition of the album in a warehouse fire during the London riots, this deluxe reissue, featuring the original gatefold artwork and a download coupon, restores the stark masterpiece to its intended full song sequence, including three additional songs, one which, 'Fat Bright Star', has never previously been released in any form. (In 2011, Taylor released three vinyl editions of 100 each, now collectors items, on his own Heaven and Earth Magic imprint.) This moving, intimate document, until now available only in limited numbers and difficult and dear to acquire in any format, is critical for fans and new listeners alike, providing a retrospective in advance of an new, full-band Hiss Golden Messenger album currently being recorded for release on Paradise Of Bachelors later this year.
