Another nice little rarity from the archives – sealed 2007 two-disc set from Rhino Handmade, collecting Burnett’s 1984 lone full-length for Warner Brothers – “Proof Through The Night” – and the two Trap Door EP’s that bookended that release. I’m pretty sure that this was the first, and likely last, time we’ll this material issued on CD. And this set was limited to 5000 copies. It’s easier to find the original vinyl issues than it is this to lay hands on this piece. So, pretty dang scarce. $75.
PS – No slouch whatsoever on guitar, “Proof…” gathers up an absolutely stunning coffee klatch of contributing guitarists. I mean, Pete Townshend, Richard Thompson, Mick Ronson and Ry Cooder? On the same record?
