In case you missed it a few years ago, here is The Great Lost Album by Hasil Adkins. Even if you did happen to see that post, I don't think Beware of the Blog had posted all fifteen cuts at that point. If you're not familiar with the Haze, I'm torn. I'd love to provide some context, and tell you why he's a big deal, because, hipster appeal aside, he is a big deal. But, really, you just have to hear him. You'll either be repelled, or amazed. He's one of those. The first three below are older 45s, and to those who dig him, they might as well be "Johnny B. Goode" for how familiar they are. The fourth cut below is a completely random pick from the lost album, "Go Go Go Down the Line (Lookin' Down That Highway". Hang on until :1:57. It makes "a-wop-bom-a-loo-mop" sound downright literary.
The story behind it The Great Lost Album is a great read. Check it out at The Hound Blog.
