Stumpwater - Motel In SaginawRegular price $42.40
STUMPWATER had an unreleased 1973 LP. Yep and not only that, its a friggin concept LP about the characters populating a small town hotel (think Lee Hazlewoods Trouble is a Lonesome Town, but not really) called Motel in Saginaw (a place ol Mike Nesmith seemed to know too). To say the Motel In Saginaw homespun album was a revelation is putting it lightly gorgeous tunes about death thatd have Simon and G crying in their cappuccinos, creepy Dylan-esque tales that David Blue would have liked to have written, maudlin hearts of gold in every groove basically a hazy, sepia-stained song cycle for all the Judy Blue Eyes in the world to get lost in while rollin a dirt- weed joint. The Topanga Canyon-in-thee-midwest boheme coffeehouse has finally come to you via this archival release. The deluxe package includes an inner sleeve with photos and info, a cracking mastering job by wunderkind Carl Saff and an original (hopefully non-warped) copy of their original private-press single. The complete Stumpwater at last! So kick back, take your socks off, drop the needle on this lost classic-to-be, and let yer hair blow in the prairie wind, my dusty denim children.
