Light in the Attic is reissuing another neglected wonder on deluxe vinyl. This time it’s Carole King’s late-60s progressive folk-rock band The City. Formed in 1967 after King moved to Laurel Canyon with her daughters, she joined bassist Charles Larkey (The Myddle Class), guitarist/singer Danny Kortchmar (The Fugs), and drummer Jim Gordon (Derek & The Dominos) to record Now That Everything’s Been Said.
Produced by the venerable Lou Adler, all involved expected the album to be a hit. That didn’t happen. Due to distribution problems and the band’s unwillingness to tour due to King’s stage fright, the album was quickly deleted from the record company’s catalog. You might have heard some of the tracks however, since artists like The Byrds, The Monkees, American Spring, and Blood, Sweat & Tears have covered them. And now the album’s getting its first-ever wax reissue on everyone’s favorite colored vinyl! Light in the Attic subscribers can get this thing on gold wax and the first 200 pre-orders come on black-and-white haze wax. It’s out October 2.
