The second album LAKE recorded for , Let’s Build a Roof [KLP213], included “Gravel”, a song by drummer/multi-instrumentalist Lindsay Schief many consider one of its highlights.
When the band returned from their U.S. tour following the release of Let’s Build a Roof, “Gravel” had a new uid soulful feel to it that struck resident Dub Narcotic Studio producer Selector Dub Narcotic (aka Calvin Johnson) as a ripe candidate for the Dub Narcotic Disco Plate series of 7” 45 rpm phonograph records. He approached the band about the idea and they agreed to give it a try. The revamped “Gravel” was recorded at Dub Narcotic Studio, comprising the A side of this release. Flip it over and hear the Selector Dub Narcotic version, “Re-Grade”, complete with a new melodica infused melody.
