An anthology of the brilliant and unique five-decade career of The Legendary Stardust Cowboy. Unhinged whooping, hooting and hollering rock'roll genius of the kind that helps you get through life.

Featuring his best known songs plus rarities, this is the first ever vinyl compilation of The Ledge's work from 1968 to the present day.

When it comes to pop music, artistic originality always seems to be in chronically short supply, but for avant-sick noise phenom the Legendary Stardust Cowboy, it's an endlessly available resource.

Since his unforgettable 1968 introduction with aralyzed', the Cowboy's unhinged whoop and screech, hit-&-run brand of bugle limned cacophony has not only astonished, it has also reached deep into the pop mainstream, from his early appearance on Rowan and Martin's Laugh-In to David Bowies's 2002 cover of his "I Took A Trip (On A Gemini Space Ship)".

The ornery Lubbock, Texas-born auteur has just turned 67, but he's no novelty wringing relic; working with a longtime band of accompanists that include Dead Kennedy's bassist Klaus Flouride, trio'd with Joey Myers on drums and Jay Rosen on guitar, The Ledge continues to rocket through his own drastically idiosyncratic musical galaxy.
