REATARD, JAY - SINGLES '06-'07 2XLP
By now, the late Jay Reatard should be known to most everyone paying any attention to this whole indie / punk / pop / garage / blahblahblah. Former front guy for The Reatards and Lost Sounds as well as a solo sensation, the man was nothing if not prolific. After recording his debut solo LP, 2006’s Blood Visions, Reatard released a slew of singles and EPs on labels across the globe; all were pressed in limited quantities and now fetch serious coin. Re-mastered by the ’Tard himself, Singles 06-07 collections of all his out-of-print non-album tracks from that productive two-year period, making it possible to hear these gems in one straight shot, sounding better than ever, without flipping over a pile of 7-inch platters. The CD version of Singles 06-07 includes a live DVD showcasing some choice performances of Reatard and his incredible live backing band. The vinyl version is a double-LP housed in a beautiful gatefold sleeve.
