Wooden Wand Archives LP Reissues! PIAPTK-084
In anticipation of the upcoming furtherance of our curatorial Archives series with Wooden Wand, we are reissuing the individual albums from the LONG sold-out Archives Wooden Box Set! With new covers, all hand-silkscreened, these incredible albums will be limited to 100 hand numbered copies each!
Hard Bargains – The more “rocking” Toth tunes, mostly full band style recording with a heavier groove to it.
Roadside Peaches – The lesser seen Toth song-type... the sincere, sweet, love songs.
Visiting Hours and Other Missteps - Full of the more Downer-type tunes. But don’t get me wrong, there are plenty of giggle-worthy moments despite the somber tone. A good disc for fans of Born Bad.
Get Right With The Goddess – A really good mixed bag of mostly acoustic tunes.
Preparing An Audience - Much like Tom Waits, Wand often writes tunes from the perspective of a character. Whereas Waits’ protagonist is a down-on-his-luck, hard living, skid row bum, Toth’s is more of a self-loathing, hard living, smarmy Southern jerk. This disc compiles some of the best tunes from that perspective.
Five Alive / First Songs – A collection of the lower-fidelity tunes, many of which are very old, and give a really good glimpse into a little different Wand than you are used to. Runs the gamut of recording type and vocal style.
Because James didn't want these albums out into the digital world, each purchase includes a one album digital sampler of tunes from all of the archives albums.
Each disc Limited to 100 silkscreened and hand numbered!
