Celebrating 10 years of the Light In The Attic label, this 7" is part of  a series of special coloured vinyl releases featuring contemporary artists covering a track reissued by Light In The Attic on the A-side, plus the original version on the B-side.

For the topside, Alex Maas of the Black Angels and Erika Wennerstrom / Jesse Ebaugh of Heartless Bastards (under the band name Sweet Tea) cover Wendy Rene’s classic soul number ‘After Laughter Comes Tears’, preserving its creepy organ and tortured soul but adding deep bass and raw power.

Rene’s original – beloved of Wu Tang Clan, who sampled it on ‘Tearz’ – was one of a handful of timeless soul songs she recorded with The Drapels and solo for Stax before retiring prematurely to raise a family.

A side is produced by Alex Maas / Brett Orrison and recorded at Out The Woodwork Studios, Austin, TX, July 2012.

B side features the original Wendy Rene version as remastered by John Baldwin for the anthology.
