For me, this - and not Can's Lost Tapes - is the reissue of 2012. Or. more correctly, the ISSUE of 2012, as it never saw the light of day when it was first recorded, forty odd years ago. Country, soul, funk and psych collide head-on, and while it doesn't all work (hence the four star rather than five star rating) the hits (Silky Path, Naturally High, the title track ) far outweigh the occasional low. And even the lows aren't bad. If you like the Soul Jazz Delta Swamp Rock compilations, or the Country Got Soul series, then this is for you. Light in the Attic go from strength to strength, digging where others fear to dig, and coming up trumps most of the time.

I took a flyer on this one, on the basis of a number of favourable music-press reviews. Initial disappointment has turned to a mild liking, after repeated plays ... altho' it works better as background music in this household. Singer-songwriter Stinnett lacks a defined style/genre, but the same applies to many equivalent albums from those distant days. In the end, it comes as no surprise that A&M elected not to release it at the time - like most major labels, they'd already shown a tendency to release one-off LPs by unknown artists, some worthy (Steve Young, Ron Davies), some dreadful (John Braden). Still, it does no harm to have Ray's CD on the shelf, especially when, like me, your pulse quickens at the prospect of running another undeservedly overlooked album to earth. Light In The Attic have packaged this beautifully, as is their habit, but this reissue doesn't hold a candle to their release of Jim Sullivan's brief but astonishing UFO.

First time on CD for this superb reissue from '71. Think Bobby Charles meets The Stones via a bit of Hi/Stax records and you are nearly there. A wonderful trippy, dusty fusion of swampy country blues, folk and rock with a bit of Memphis soul, some lush gospel choruses and psychedelia thrown into the mix! Get this and you won't regret it!!! Sounds as fresh as the day it was cut and the 40 page booklet is great to boot!

40 years on the shelf ... worthy of discovery 28 Mar 2013
By Donald E. Gilliland - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Audio CD Verified Purchase
I read a positive reveiew of this album in MOJO magazine recently and was intrigued. I love discovering "lost" recordings like this, and after noting that it was released on the excellent Light in the Attic label (famous for reissuing the Rodriguez albums, among many other musical treasures), I decided that it was worth the risk of ordering, even without having heard a single tune. Well, it was definitely worth the purchase. Not so sure about having to wait over 40 years, though. And that's how long it took for this 1971 recording to finally surface, having been finally released in 2012.

Stinnett was a very young member of Sam the Sham & the Pharoahs (of "Wooly Bully" fame) and then hung out in the late 60s "Summer of Love" scene in San Francisco and Northern California. The label describes this album as "oozing with swampy Southern charm ... perfectly melds Memphis soul and San Francisco psyche-folk." That's not a bad description, though the Memphis soul mention might strike some as odd, until you find out that Booker T. Jones was a buddy of Ray's and the executive producer of this album. But even with Booker's presence I don't hear the soul aspect in these songs as much as a slight psyche influence and plenty of folky southern sounds. In fact, my first reaction upon hearing this album was that it reminded me of early 70s recordings by bands like the Ozark Mountain Daredevils and Pure Prairie League; a healthy dose of southern twang, blues and country, with a slighty --- and delightfully --- warped delivery. But no matter who these songs remind you of, there is denying that it's quality top-shelf stuff. A real shame that these recordings languished, unheard for 40 years, but kudos to Light in the Attic for letting us finally hear them. The CD also contains a marvelous booklet with vintage photos, an essay by Jessica Hundley, explanations of the songs by Ray himself, and an intro by Booker T. Great package and great tunes. I'd give this a 4.5 rating; nearly perfect.
