SummaryEnjoy The Experience: Homemade Records 1958-1992 is the inaugural offering from Sinecure Books. Packaged as a hardcover, and weighing in at 512 pages, it is the most comprehensive overview of the American "private press" movement from the latter half of the 20th Century that could possibly be assembled. Now- Again Records is pleased to distribute a 2CD/2LP anthology of psych, funk, folk, jazz, lounge, disco, boogie and just-plain-weirdness culled from the the book's selections.
Take note: this is not a novelty freak show. Contained in this anthology are examples of some of the most highly regarded rock, soul, jazz, funk and singer/ songwriter albums from the 60s through the early 80s. From the awkward-yet- talented to the genius-yet-bizarre, one thing unites all musicians presented here: they sincerely hoped to become stars, they committed themselves to record, and they left themselves vulnerable to an industry not understanding of nuance, not appreciative of character. While Enjoy The Experience the book details a forceful American cultural experience that stands in juxtaposition to the mainstream even as its creators attempted to infiltrate it, Enjoy The Experience the album shows the breadth of American creativity in a compelling, start-to-finish listen. Not all of it is easy to digest, but this music is essential to the 20th century American experience.
Contains 44 page booklet with full annotation and extensive liner notes by noted record collectors/historians and album artwork/ephemera.
