Product Details

Limited hand-numbered 180gm vinyl LP repressing with a reproduction of Jasper Johns' 1970 lithograph, 'Scott Fagan Record', as cover art. Includes digital download. Scott Fagan's debut album, South Atlantic Blues, is a genuine lost classic - a mystical, mythical and deeply soulful masterpiece. Recorded when Scott was just 21, virtually homeless and with pennies to his name, it was released in 1968 on Atco Records but remained obscure, confounded by a series of frustrating near-misses. From being mentored by Doc Pomus to being discovered by Jasper Johns, Scott's incredible story and music unfolds on South Atlantic Blues. Steeped in delicate psych, soul and resonant acoustic guitars "that stroke and stone you to the core" (Shindig). It's an epic song cycle about Fagan's hard-scrabble life in the Virgin Islands, where he was raised and lived until 19 before returning to his birthplace of New York City. A teenage prodigy, mentored and managed by songwriters Doc Pomus and Mort Shuman, Scott recorded early material for Columbia and Bert Berns' Bang label before signing with Atco. In 1969, artist Jasper Johns discovered South Atlantic Blues in a cut-out bin, fell in love with the record, and used it as the inspiration for three artworks, known as 'Scott Fagan Record.' The pieces are now housed in the permanent collections of MOMA, the Met and the Walker Art Center.
