Allen, Terry - Lubbock (on everything) 2LP
We’re proud and humbled finally to announce the long-simmering details of our most in-depth and deluxe reissue project to date, Terry Allen‘s revered art-country classic double album Lubbock (on everything) (1979), the seminal full-band follow-up to Juarez (1975).
Legendary Texan artist Terry Allen occupies a unique position straddling the frontiers of country music and visual art; he has worked with everyone from Guy Clark to David Byrne to Lucinda Williams, and his artwork resides in museums worldwide. Widely acclaimed as a masterpiece, his deeply moving (and hilarious) satirical second album, a complex memory palace to his West Texas hometown Lubbock, is often cited as the urtext of alt-country.
Produced in close collaboration with the artist and meticulously remastered from the original analog tapes, this is the definitive edition: the first to correct the tape speed inconsistencies evident on all prior versions; the first U.S. vinyl reissue (2xLP); the first CDs (2xCD) to restore the full track listing; and the first to contextualize the record within Allen’s 50-year career.
