Release Date:03/25/2014;Notes:2014 vinyl LP pressing deluxe reissue of the 1973 album widely recognized as the first openly gay country music album-and cited as such even by Nashville institutions like the Country Music Hall of Fame and CMT-the landmark self-titled Lavender Country album stands as nothing less than an artifact of courage, a sonic political protest document of enormous power, clarity, and grace. Songwriter, singer, and guitarist Patrick Haggerty, a fearless first-generation gay liberation activist and artist, seasons his songs with Yippie deviousness in the manner of the Cockettes, the laughs both sharpen and sweeten the impact. The inimitable aesthetics and glimpses of cockeyed humor recall some ethereal psych-folk nexus of the Flatlanders and the Holy Modal Rounders as much as any standard country and western forebears, rendering the biting poetry in an even more otherworldly and timeless light. The record reflects Haggerty's experiences: his upbringing on a tenant dairy farm in rural Washington, on the Canadian border his dismissal from the Peace Corps on the spurious grounds of his sexuality and his righteous struggles as an outraged young gay man navigating the Pacific Northwest in the immediate aftermath of Stonewall. He designed Lavender Country as a vehicle for what he deems "The Information": valid cultural communications intended to resonate with those unable to access similar resources. (Playing "Cryin' These Cocksucking Tears," one of the indisputably great country song titles ever, cost a brave Seattle DJ her FCC license.);Track List:1. Come Out Singing;2. Gypsy John;3.
