Sun Kil Moon is an American folk rock act from San Francisco, California, founded in 2002. Initially a continuation of the defunct indie rock band Red House Painters, Sun Kil Moon is now the primary recording moniker of vocalist and guitarist Mark Kozelek . The band's debut album, Ghosts of the Great Highway, was released in November 2003 by Jetset Records. It contains several songs concerned with true-life stories of deceased boxers, such as Mexican featherweight champion Salvador Sánchez, Filipino flyweight champion Pancho Villa, and also Korean boxer Duk Koo Kim, all three boxers died at the age of 23.

In addition to all of the above, I’m just finishing work on a 6-song full length album featuring artists Petra Haden, Jason Lindner, Kevin Corrigan, Steve Shelley, Donny McCaslin, Ben Boye, and other great talents. My guess is a July release on that one. Moniker/album title/song titles to be announced in February.

modificato 2 months ago riferendosi a Ghosts Of The Great Highway, 2xLP, Album, RE, Gat, RTRADLP885. Just recently bought another copy. I can safely say that this time it is much quieter. Does anyone have an idea what the value of a test pressing of this album would be? I picked one up for my collection and it's invaluable to me. I was just curious if anyone has seen them before as I'm unsure how many exist.
Their debut album, in November 2003, was Ghosts Of The Great Highway. This is my favourite Sun Kil Moon album. The lyrics are thought provoking and evasive, requiring repeat listenings. The album has more musical variety than some of his more recent albums, though Admiral Fell Promises is another cracking piece of work.
MARK KOZELEK's music is the exception to the rule (the rule being: less is more). In an age when virtually every album is too long, and most songs could stand to lose a little running length, too, Kozelek continues to write songs that go on and on and on, yet never outstay their welcome. Duk Koo Kim is 14 minutes long, but still leaves too soon (and, since you ask, it's the name of a Korean boxer)
