The fourth LP in Recital’s Loren Connors editions/reissue series. Pretty As Ever is a beautiful collection of Loren’s guitar ballads, dedicated to his wife Suzanne.  Includes the “Pretty As Ever” and “Trinity” suites, from the out of print album Sails (2005), alongside the complete Little Match Girl (2000).  This album falls in line with the other LPs Recital has published, Airs, Lullaby, Evangeline… as hopeful and careful as a heartbeat.

This LP also comes with Woman of Sorrows, a 12-page art-booklet of illustrations by Loren, unpublished until now. Also comes with Loren’s rendering of The Little Match Girl, a tragic tale written by Hans Christian Anderson.  A cohesive release, which I am very proud to be publishing.
