Lisa Miller 'Car Tape' LP Black Vinyl

'Car Tape' is an album of country-soul covers by singer-songwriter Lisa Miller, like the treasured cassette tape you would lovingly put together for a long car trip, originally released in 2002 and now available for the first time on vinyl. 
Back in the '90s, before alt-country was really a thing, Melbourne's Lisa Miller was the leading light of a small vibrant Fitzroy scene, immersed in country soul and classic American singer-songwriters.
As the new millennium dawned, and after two highly acclaimed records of original songs, Lisa wanted to do something a bit different. Something less introspective, and more fun. The initial idea was to just record some cover versions and put it out as a mixtape, and while it eventually arrived on CD instead of cassette, the original concept was maintained. Car Tape featured 13 wonderful tracks. Some were originally by artists who at the time were not as well-known as they seem to be today, like Townes Van Zandt, Gene Clark, Bill Withers, The Zombie's Colin Blunstone and Karen Dalton, and some were by artists who still haven't gotten their due, like Doug Sahm and Toussaint McCall. Friend and local favourite Tim Rogers even got a guernsey, with an exquisite version of "Words of Sadness".
Car Tape was immediately loved, first by Lisa's fans and critics, and soon enough by a surprisingly large and diverse audience. It went on to be one of the best-selling Australian independent albums of 2002 and 2003, and earned Lisa three ARIA nominations, including Best Female Artist.
