Item specifics

Seller Notes: The flats are in near mint condition.
Original/Reproduction: Original Country/Region of Manufacture: United States
Country of Manufacture: United States
2 identical USA 1998 Elektra promo flat for their infamous Woody Guthrie collaboration. I have two copies I'm selling here with sides reversed for the photo so you can see both in one picture. The front sides are semi glossy & the back sides are non glossy.

Remember you only pay shipping for ONE promo flat no matter what the size of the order is if you are buying promo flats only (& they always ship for free with any 12" LP/single vinyl).

ALBUM REVIEW: During the spring of 1995, Woody Guthrie's daughter Nora contacted British urban folk troubadour Billy Bragg about writing music for a selection of completed Guthrie lyrics. This was no minor task -- Guthrie left behind over a thousand sets of complete lyrics written between 1939 and 1967 that had no music other than a vague stylistic notation. Bragg chose a number of songs to finish, as did Jeff Tweedy of the alt-country band Wilco (often with bandmate Jay Bennett). Nora Guthrie impressed a common goal upon them: Rather than recreating Guthrie tunes, they should write as if they were collaborating with Woody, creating new, vital music for the lyrics. Both artists completed more songs than could fit on Mermaid Avenue, which is neatly split between Bragg and Wilco, with Bragg taking lead on eight of the 15 songs. The results are almost entirely a delight, mainly because all involved are faithful to Guthrie's rowdy spirit -- it's a reverent project that knows how to have fun. There are many minor, irresistible gems scattered throughout the album, and most of them come from Bragg. Where Wilco's fine contributions sound inextricably tied to the '90s, both for better and for worse, Bragg's music sounds contemporary while capturing Guthrie's folk traditions. That's not to say Wilco's contributions are failures -- it's just hard to imagine Guthrie singing the plaintive "California Stars" or the plodding "Christ for President," neither of which quite fit the lyrics. Nevertheless, their hearts are in the right place; more often than not, they come close to the target, and their joyous playing invigorates Mermaid Avenue. The blend of Bragg's traditionalist sensibility and Wilco's contemporary style ultimately illustrates that Guthrie's words, ideals, and aesthetics remain alive in the '90s. It's a remarkable record that deserves a sequel.

CONDITION: The flats are in near mint condition.

PROMO FLATS:
Are usually about the same thickness & material as a postcard but 12" X 12" approx (LP record cover) size & were sent to record stores for displays on the walls along with posters & are getting kind of scarce these days, they are usually semi glossy on the front (& usually the same picture or similar to the LP cover of the album they are promoting) & the backs when not blank are non glossy two toned color in many instances. These ship for FREE with any LP & you only pay shipping for one (additional flats sent in the same LP mailer ship for free if you are just buying promo flats). They always ship in LP mailers.
