RSD release that just now made it ... huh? With Ed Bruce & Roger Miller!

Limited Edition 500 LPs - 250 'Windswept Heartache' Milky Clear LPs! / 250 'Soul Necrosis' Black LPs! (randomly inserted)

From the people who brought you 'Hillbillies In Hell'... 16 timeless tales of existential angst wrought from backwoods outsiders and Nashville misfits. Furtive banjos and lonesome voices soundtrack a turbulent vista of Eternal Questions and Unquenchable Wanderlusts. Trench-warfare Laments, harrowing Self-examinations, faltering Ids and devastated Egos. Many originally waxed on private press labels and distributed in unrewarding amounts, these Troubled Troubadours sing of endless Yearnings, distant Freedoms, collapsing Identities, primordial Fears and stygian landscapes of molten Self-doubt. Years in the making - 'It's A Rough Old Road To Travel' presents existential Howls and Jungian diatribes from forgotten 45s: windswept Longings, broken Survivalists and disrupted Ecologies. All for your contemplative listening pleasure. Strictly Limited Edition Deluxe Gatefold LP with exclusive scholarly liner notes by Alvin Lucia! Full dynamic range 2022 remasters direct from the first generation analogue master tapes!
