Mark Kozelek has recorded six studio albums with Red House Painters, four solo albums, and two with Sun Kil Moon. In February 2007, Caldo Verde Records reissued the first Sun Kil Moon album Ghosts of the Great Highway with reworked packaging and a six song bonus CD featuring two versions of Leonard Bernstein’s “Somewhere,” alternate versions of “Carry Me Ohio” and “Salvador Sanchez,” a radio performance of “Gentle Moon” and the previously unreleased instrumental, “Arrival” recorded for the movie The Girl Next Door. Originally released on November 3, 2003, Ghosts of the Great Highway received superlative reviews, moved quickly to Number 1 on college radio and has become one of singer-songwriter Mark Kozelek’s most loved and best-selling albums of his 14 year career.
Little Drummer Boy Live was released through Caldo Verde Records on November 28, 2006. Recorded mostly in 2005 and 2006, the album contains live to CDR recordings from various shows in Europe and North America. The limited edition double CD covers a broad range of Mark Kozelek material, including Red House Painters, Sun Kil Moon and personalized covers of Modest Mouse, Cars and AC/DC, with new tracks “Moorestown” and “Unlit Hallway.” Little Drummer Boy Live will be packaged together with Mark Kozelek’s limited 2001 release White Christmas Live in an exclusive 4 piece vinyl set to be released later in the year entitled White Christmas and Little Drummer Boy Live.
Mark recently recorded music for the movie Fairwell Bender, had two songs from his Tiny Cities album featured on The O.C. and collaborated with Kristina Faragher on a 7 minute film entitled Gaping Mouth, currently part of the exhibit Yosemite, Art of an American Icon, now showing at the Oakland Museum until September 2, 2007. Ghosts tracks “Carry Me Ohio” and “Lily and Parrots” were featured in the Steve Martin film Shopgirl, in which Mark plays the role of a lead singer in a fictitious rock band. Mark also contributed several tracks to several compilations. His version of Will Oldham’s “New Partner” is included on CD entitled I Am A Cold Rock, I Am Dull Grass. Sun Kil Moon’s version of Neil Diamond’s “Kentucky Woman” is featured on Songs from the Brown Hotel which also features Elvis Presley and Nancy Wilson. The original composition “Leo and Luna” appears on a Canadian Compilation entitled See You on the Moon. A live version of “Have You Forgotten” will be featured in the soundtrack The Trials of Darryl Hunt, due out this summer.
Other highlights include producing Take Me Home: A Tribute to John Denver; Retrospective, a two-CD collection featuring various rarities and live tracks alongside favorite RHP material; scoring the independent film Last Ball and appearing in Cameron Crowe’s critically acclaimed Almost Famous and Vanilla Sky, which also featured a re-recording of “Have You Forgotten”.
One of my favourite miserable b astards ever!
I literally cannot wait until this happens.
This should be amazing.
Oh yes. Hoping he does his cover of 'Shock Me' by KISS.
Whoa. This is bloody good news. I'm off to listen to 'Ocean Beach' in miserable celebration.
Bring on the AC/DC covers. Can't wait for this. Genius.
