Annette Peacock's I'm The One to be reissued by Light In The Attic

In 2010 Annette Peacock quietly reissued her 1972 album I'm The One on CD via her own Ironic label. It was only available via her site or CDBaby, but now I'm The One is being given a full reissue shakedown by Light In The Attic.

Peacock collaborated with Salvador Dali, bought a Moog direct from Robert Moog, was confidant to Timothy Leary, and turned down an offer to tour with David Bowie, telling him to buy his own synthesizer.

This latest reissue (it was also reissued once in the 80s) will be released on CD and LP, the latter in a hand numbered run of 1,000. The difference between this and Peacock's own recent reissue is that Peacock's version comes in a signed hard cover, and the Light In The Attic CD (which Ironic records says has not been sanctioned by Peacock) comes in a digipack.

Light In The Attic's reissue is due out on 29 May, remastered from original tapes and bundled with archive photos, liner notes and a poster. More details here.
