about

The essential collection of singles by legendary avant blues guitarist Loren Connors, one of America's most unique and challenging voices. "Night Through" spans four decades of Connors' recordings from the first acoustic solo 7" -- 'Ribbon o' Blues' on his own St. Joan imprint -- to rare singles issued by Table of the Elements, Road Cone, Father Yod, Menlo Park, Gyttja, Union Pole, and others, to his late 90s band Haunted House and recent acoustic recordings.

Seventy-one tracks span more than three and half hours of music: 12 7" singles, private CDR releases, collaborations with Suzanne Langille and Robert Crotty, compilation appearances, and 22 unreleased pieces including a 1959 recording by Connors' mother Mary Mazzacane. Remastered from the original tapes by Jim O'Rourke.

Comes with 24-page PDF booklet: detailed notes for each single, never before seen photographs, an essay by renowned Delta Blues scholar William Ferris and commentary from Connors, Langille, Road Cone's Mike Hinds and others.
