Celebrating Light In The Attic’s 10 year anniversary in 2012, we are releasing a series of very special colored vinyl 7”s and digital downloads. The series features contemporary artists covering a track reissued by Light In The Attic on the A-side, plus the original version on the B-side.

In 2011, Seattle band Gold Leaves released one of our favorite albums of the year. The Ornament is their debut long player and was released by Hardly Art/Sub Pop. We’ve been obsessing over their sound ever since and are honored to have the band contributing a track for our 10 year anniversary 45 singles series. For the series, Gold Leaves record a hazy take on Lee Hazlewood’s “Won’t You Tell Your Dreams.” Found on the flip side is Hazlewood’s version, which was originally included on his solo album Requiem For An Almost Lady, released in 1971 on his label LHI.

A-side is produced by Gold Leaves, engineered by Chris Early, and recorded in Seattle in September 2012. B-side features Lee’s original version as remastered by John Baldwin for our recent compilation Lee Hazlewood – The LHI Years: Singles, Nudes, & Backsides (1968-71).
