Larry Jon Wilson came to the party late. When he arrived in Nashville, country soul pioneer Tony Joe White had already made six albums. Townes Van Zandt had made seven, Mickey Newbury eight. Kristofferson, the accepted High Priest of the New Nashville, had made five. Larry Jon, by the time he arrived, had spent ten years in corporate America.
He did not start playing guitar until the age of 30, but five years later he released his debut, New Beginnings (1975) and followed it just a year later with Let Me Sing My Song To You, both on Monument Records. A revelation among the hipsters and critics of Nashville, the LPs ensured Larry Jon was immediately embraced as part of the mid-70s “outlaw country movement” that eschewed slick production in favour of a raw, gritty approach. When a film crew came to document this burgeoning sound, they made straight for Larry Jon’s door. The legendary Heartworn Highways (1981) featured his mesmerising performance of “Ohoopee River Bottomland”.
He was a singer and writer of intensely private, painfully moving tales of southern life. With his deep, papa-bear voice, funky southern groove, and richly evocative narratives of rural Georgia, Larry Jon was a unique stylist but his gutsy, greasy sound did not translate into sales. Too funky for the country crowd, too heartfelt for pop radio, he fell between the cracks. We hope the long-overdue reissue of his first two albums will go some way to rectifying this. Indeed, both New Beginnings and Let Me Sing My Song to You – so similar they play like two halves of a double album – showcase his unique mix of country, folk, soul and swampy blues.
The audio for Let Me Sing My Song To You comes from the original analogue tape transfers and has been remastered for vinyl by 'Be With' regular Simon Francis. The same care was taken with the striking cover art and Larry’s close friend Jeb Loy Nichols wrote the wonderfully unique liner notes, presented on the printed inner sleeve opposite a gorgeous black and white shot of Larry, mid-performance.
