A very very cool new package from the folks at Light in the Attic: they’ve recently turned their famous Seattle soul/funk anthology, Wheedle’s Groove into a 45s boxset which features 10 7″s highlighting songs/artists from the original comp. It’s a sick package, including replicated artwork for the 7″s which is always a nice touch, plus a bonus EP of Robbie Hill’s Family Affair’s unreleased sessions.
Unfortunately, they can’t offer the boxset for a giveaway since it’s a limited edition item, BUT Light in the Attic will giveaway an original copy of anthology on CD.
Also, don’t sleep on another recent LITA release: Kool and Together’s self-titled anthology:
Where Hendrixâ€™s Band of Gypsys left off is exactly the spot where Kool and Together was born. For the Sanders brothers, the screams of Psychedelic Rock met with Motownâ€™s funky Soul at a crossroads called Black Rock.
To enter, send us an email, titled “Wheelde’s Giveaway”. We’ll pick a winner at random next week.

Notable fact: the only cover to get more than two mentions was this (which was noted by four different people!):
Agreed – awesome cover.
