Gary Wilson “Forgotten Lovers” LP
Edition of 1000
OUT OF PRINT!
First vinyl issue of this collection of rare and unreleased material by one of the most iconoclastic musicians produced by the 1970s. Wilson’s 1977 LP, “You Think You Really Know Me”, is a classic of alternate-universe lounge-wave, and has been cited as choice by everyone from the Residents to Beck Hansen. “Forgotten Lovers” includes unreleased studio tracks from the same period, subsequent single tracks, as well as samples of Wilson’s pre-“You Think You Really Know Me” records (a single and an album) which were more in a porn-soundtrack-jazz-funk vein. Gary has reanimated his career in the last decade, and we raise our hats to him for doing so, but his early stuff is really the donkey’s eyelids. A classic bizzaro world blend of various “real people” elements and explosive new wave dynamics. As rich as butter, you’ll want to spread this music on your torso to promote tanning.
