For singer/songwriter Lloyd Cole, now is the time for Cleaning Out The Ashtrays -- for sorting through dusty boxes of cassettes, DAT tapes and CDs in his Easthampton hideaway, to take stock and try to make sense of all that forgotten music. All those lost songs; half remembered sessions, much-missed friends and fellow-musicians and gifted co-producers. A goldmine of music from 21 years as a solo artist. Here, then, are 59 -- count 'em -- nuggets from the Cole vaults. Four CDs bursting with alternate versions, rare B-sides, cover sessions (Lou Reed, Marc Bolan and Leonard Cohen songs among them), and a few tracks that the record companies -- and on occasion, even Lloyd himself -- just didn't get at the time. The launch of the new Lloydcole.com, along with a healthy appetite for touring his folk singer set around the world, has helped establish a vibrant online community of Cole fans. Countless queries about lost B-sides and rumored remixes sowed the seeds of the Cleaning Out The Ashtrays project which Cole has researched and compiled himself. Now, all of us can share in the riches that lay hidden inside that dusty old box. Includes a 36-page booklet with notes on each CD by the artist himself.
