Songs of Experience, David Axelrod LP Now Again
Now-Again records – Eothen Alapatt aka ‘Egon’ founded the record label in 2002 in Los Angeles whilst running the infamous Stones Throw label simultaneously.
He focuses on reissues of music from the 1950’s to the present day and the label represents a wealth of discographies that range from Nigerian fuzz-funk to Swedish hard rock to Brasilian psychedelia to the jazz, funk, soul and disco that Egon is known for. These records are always on rotation at the restaurant.
Whenever he is in town, usually with his partner in crime, Madlib, they always find a moment to visit us on Columbia Road. Like his record label, his knowledge of wine and food runs deep. It’s always a good evening when they drop in and we are really proud to be able to offer a selection for sale here.
Songs of Experience
Songs of Experience was recorded after the death of his beloved son Scott. Experience is an ominous affair, an album concerned with mortality and spirituality – the solitary, pastoral musings of William Blake set to the urban bombast of a full Los Angeles orchestra, with Wrecking Crew vets grounding the proceedings with dark funk.
Audiophile reissue, lacquered directly from Axelrod’s original master tapes at Capitol Records by Ron McMaster.
Contains an oversized, 28 page booklet that delves into Axelrod’s incredible life and music, replete with never before published photos and an interview with Axelrod by Eothen Alapatt and Waxpoetic’s Brian Digenti.
