Gosh, what is it about Country jams from the seventies that goes straight to the heart so hard? More than any other genre, the world of boot cut jams has been a major influence on the world of R + F since the beginning, so it was an honor when Zach Cowie (Turquoise Wisdom) reached out as he was compiling/producing an anthology to honor the music of Country Funk era from 1969-75 and who better to release/co-produce it than our brothers at Light In The Attic and liner notes written by our sister, the great Jessica Hundley. (8.4 on pitchfork? righteous!)

Working on a project like this has been a dream- especially with all the family vibes involved. I spent the entire winter of 2011 drawing hair and hootnanny homages for the album art which includes a 24-page booklet of illustrations featuring Bobbie Gentry, Tony Joe White, Mac David, Johnnie Jenkins, Hawg Frog, and Gritz.

Of COURSE, we had to make a tee shirt to mark this special occasion which is now available on the shop-special thanks our hero Mr. David Black for these gorgeous photos, Michael Gerner + Alison Lewis for being such amazin' models. You can read more about the comp and purchase the record HERE.
