We are really looking forward to the month April. Not only because the weather is getting better and better, but also because we’re adding six new audio recordings on vinyl to the Cult Legends catalogue, including four live broadcast recordings like “Eagles – Best of Live New York 1994“. In 1980 the Eagles decided to take a break, but luckily for us they reunited in 1994 and continued their musical chemistry. We are also adding a new high quality AC/DC recording to our rock catalogue with “AC/DC – Best of Live at Paradise Theatre Boston 1978“. We are also excited about the record “Bob Dylan – Best of Shelter From a Hard Rain 1976“. This live performance was part of the Rolling Thunder Revue Tour. That same year “Journey – Best of Live Into The Future 1976” was recorded with great rock songs and amazing instrumental passages.
And last but not least: two new studio albums. “Cliff Richard & The Shadows – A Sentimental Journey” features Cliff Richards songs between 1959 and 1962. “Jacques Brel – Le Chanteur” includes Jacques Brel’s best songs between 1954 and 1962. Although he recorded most of his songs in French, he influenced English-speaking songwriters and performers including David Bowie, Ray Charles, John Denver and Frank Sinatra.
All these LP’s will be available from April 11th. In this newsletter, we’d like to pay attention to these six new Cult Legends releases.
Eagles – Best of Live New York 1994

In more than two and a half hours of music, the band played about half of its hit singles, most of the “Hotel California” album, four new songs and plenty of material from band members’ individual albums.
