All of your favorites, in one place.
R. Stevie Moore's music sounds like so many different things, yet like no one else. He's been making home recordings since the late '60s as an underground artist and only now is he seeing a much larger recognition of his work. His friend Jason Willett compiled this record over the course of 17 years, digging deep into Stevie's cassette catalog. Hearing Aid is a collection of Stevie's songs that cover a wide range of variety: pop genius, sublime instrumental country surf, electronic experiments, bizarre spoken-word theater, dark disco rock, field recordings, etc. The end result is not a "greatest hits" collection but rather a diverse sculpture of the early world of R. Stevie Moore. This is one of the only readily available R. Stevie releases and 95% of Hearing Aid has never appeared before on vinyl. It features 32 songs that were recorded from the late '60s to the early '80s, over 87 minutes of audio. This compilation of rare tracks is produced on limited double LP vinyl only, in a deluxe gatefold sleeve (featuring 284 images of R. Stevie).
