Boomkat Product Review:
Remastered from the original tapes, Light In The Attic gives Lou Bond's eponymous album the reissue treatment, with previously unreleased material included. "Lou Bond, whose eponymous 1974 album is being reissued by Light In The Attic (available Tuesday in CD, LP and Digital formats), is one of those misfit artists difficult to categorize. He played acoustic guitar and sang songs that brimmed with social commentary, but had the misfortune of recording for the We Produce label during a time its parent company, Stax Records, was in serious decline. He was an incongruous presence on a label that had built its reputation on soul and funk. For such a gifted musician, it was an unfortunate confluence of bad timing and poor fit. And was that cat talented. One listen to his aforementioned self-titled release makes that apparent. Bond had a knack for the kind of conscious songwriting that was insightful and critical but rarely proselytized. His tender vocal delivery gave his songs the effect of a politicized ballad - mournful songs of protest. His acoustic guitar was his primary accompaniment, but the album also includes lush, soulful orchestral arrangements, a nod to the formidable and inescapable Stax legacy Bond was party to."
