Number 2 for Light In The Attic's 10th Anniversary colored 7" series! The series features contemporary artists on the A-side covering soul gems that can be found in their original form on the B-side (the first volume featured an amazing combo of Iggy Pop and Betty Davis). This time around, LITA brings Wendy Rene's tortured soul classic "After Laughter (Comes Tears)" back on 45 with an contemporary cover from Sweet Pea (aka Alex Mass of the Black Angels and Erica Wennerstrom / Jesse Ebaugh of Heartless Bastards). Wu heads will recognize the creepy organs and raw emotion as the sample source for "Tearz", but give the whole track a chance and you will be rewarded with a powerful soul experience. Rressed up on purple colored vinyl with custom LITA juke-box style sleeve. Limited edition.
