Another fine release in Light In The Attic's 10th Anniversary colored 7" series! For the uninitiated, this series features contemporary artists covering artists from the LITA roster on the A-side, with the original on the B-side. From Light In The Attic, "On this release, Screaming Trees man Mark Lanegan applies his tobacco-flavored tones to 'Same Old Man', a traditional made famous by the haunting New York singer-songwriter Karen Dalton. What Dalton achieves with the traditional instruments of America (notably her celebrated banjo) in her 1971 arrangement, Lanegan re-imagines with strings, droning Indian tones, sitars and sub-continent-sized production. Limited edition pressed on sky blue vinyl, housed in custom LITA juke-box style sleeve.
