Product Details
Description
Rarely in the history of American music has such a cult developed from just one album, but Gary Wilson's 1977 proto-New Wave masterpiece You Think You Really Know Me was no ordinary record, sucking unprepared new listeners in like a drug and never letting go.
Shortly after its limited release its oddball creator simply vanished. In the 25-year wake before he was found again, Gary's small-town opus had spread by word-of-mouth and indie radio to inspire a whole new generation of musicians and producers with his bizarre songs and personal musical vision - MTV star Beck even name-checked Gary in his song "Where It's At (Two Turntables & A Microphone)" after he was exposed to the LP. Other notable celebrity devotees include ?uestlove of The Roots and Simpsons creator Matt Groening.
LA's Stones Throw label, better known for its world-class new and old Hip Hop and Funk roster, has a team of long-term fans of Gary, so it is with great pride that they present you his first recordings in over a quarter of a century. The intervening years don't seem to have affected Gary's twisted, funky genius one bit, nor dulled the sheen on his perverted electro-lounge-jazz.
