This month we have a few amazing new audio releases. Like Lou Reed – Best of Waiting For The Man Live 1976 to start with. During this performance Lou Reed performed a sublime “I’m Waiting For The Man” dating back to the first Vervet Underground album. And this recording wouldn’t be complete without the hit “Walk On The Wild Side”. We also added the collaboration album Iggy Pop and David Bowie – Best of Live at Mantra Studios Broadcast 1977 to our catalogue. This recording reveals a truly legendary occasion for fans of the pair. And what about Frank Zappa – Best of Puttin’ On The Ritz 1981? With a breathtaking performance. This month we also release the live broadcast Fleetwood Mac recorded just one year after the band formed in London: Fleetwood Mac – Best of Live in London 1968.
Besides these live broadcast recordings we are also proud to release two new studio albums. Roy Orbison – The Powerful Voice contains Orbison’s best songs between 1956 and 1962, including hits “Only The Lonely” and “Crying”. Last but not least: Johnny Cash – More Cash. This album contains signature songs like “Get Rhythm” and “Folsom Prison Blues”.
All these amazing LP’s will be available from February 21st. In this newsletter, we’d like to pay attention to these six new releases.
