Lost Highway, Found on Vinyl: 10th Anniversary Box Coming Next Month

with 2 comments

With a name like Lost Highway Records, it might be tough to parse the mission statement of such a company – unless, of course, you know your Hank Williams. In fact, they’ve been supplying fans with some of the best in alternative rock and country. And now, to celebrate a decade in business, next month sees the release of a mega-vinyl box set highlighting some of the label’s best output.

Lost Highway, founded in 2000 by Luke Lewis, started their existence off with a bang, distributing the massively successful soundtrack to O Brother, Where Art Thou? (reissued and expanded earlier this year, in fact) as well as Ryan Adams’ breakthrough Gold in 2001. Since then, they’ve handled distribution for country legends from Willie Nelson to Lucinda Williams, several of Johnny Cash’s iconic, career-closing American Recordings, albums by rock stalwarts including Elvis Costello and Morrissey, great new rootsy acts like Black Joe Lewis and The Honeybears – and yes, even some catalogue action from Hank Williams.

In celebration of the label’s one-decade mark, Lost Highway has been releasing some of their most famous albums, as well as recent favorites, on limited edition clear vinyl. Next month, to finish off the celebration, all 19 of those reissued albums will be boxed together. Only 500 boxes will be available worldwide, 250 of which are now available on Amazon.

After the jump, check out the LPs that are going to be in the box! (A special thanks to the great Buy These Records for the tip; fans of The Second Disc will likely find a lot to like about this site.)
