Location is everything. When Willie Nelson and album producer Daniel Lanois set out to create a cinematic-sounding album, Teatro, they took over a disused movie theatre in Oxnard, California, and pictured its dusty glory on the LP sleeve. Recorded as-live in situ amid the red velvet seats, Teatro sees Nelson working extensively with his frequent collaborator Emmylou Harris, who joins him for duets and on backing vocals on 11 of the 14 tracks. The other major player is U2 and Paul McCartney collaborator Daniel Lanois (producer of Bob Dylan's Time Out of Mind, Emmylou Harris' Wrecking Ball), who produces the album, plays guitar and bass, took the cover photo and wrote one of the album’s songs, "The Maker”, a stunning performance with glacier-thick vibe.

Reinvention is key on Teatro, with Nelson revisiting a number of songs he first wrote in the 1960s, including 1968's "I Just Can't Let You Say Goodbye” and 1962's "I've Just Destroyed the World" and "Three Days". Though the songs are familiar, the sounds aren't: Teatro found Nelson experimenting with rhythms and flavors as never before, from the Spanish-influenced "Darkness On The Face Of The Earth" to the double-drum-kit percussive groove of "My Own Peculiar Way".

Accompanied by a nine-piece band that included Nelson's sister, Bobbie Nelson, on piano, the group conjure up an atmosphere informed by the howling harmonicas and distant mariachi bands of spaghetti western soundtracks, the end result being a Willie Nelson album quite unlike any other in his career, and one that reveals it widescreen vision through arresting sonic imagery.

Originally released by Island Record in 1998, Teatro is issued here as a special Record Store Day release. LA and Seattle-based Light In The Attic present the album as it's never been seen before – on vinyl. Pressed on gold vinyl with a deluxe, gatefold, 'tip-on' uncoated jacket, this is a chance to own this unique album in its most beautifully presented form.


Side A: "Ou Es-Tu, Mon Amour? (Where Are You, My Love?)”, "I Never Cared for You”, "Everywhere I Go”, "Darkness on the Face of the Earth”
Side B: "My Own Peculiar Way”, "These Lonely Nights”, "Home Motel”, "The Maker"
Side C: "I Just Can't Let You Say Goodbye", "I've Just Destroyed the World (I'm Living In)", "Somebody Pick Up My Pieces"
Side D: "Three Days”, "I've Loved You All Over the World”, “Annie”

Mighty Mighty Bosstones
Question The Answers

Label: Asbestos Records
Release type: RSD Exclusive Release
More Info:


While Lets Face It was their smash hit record, Question the Answers might very well be the bands defining musical statement. Packed top to bottom with fan favorites that still dominate the bands’s live sets 2 decades later this record has it all and was the perfect synthesis of ska punk with Boston punk/hardcore delivered by growling vocals of arguably the most identifiable frontmen in punk rock. Question the Answers was the far and away one of the most important ska-punk records ever recorded.

3000 pressed -- 2900 Blue and 100 randomly inserted Yellow/Red Split records. Standard LP jacket. Manufactured by: United Record Pressing.
