Donovan – What’s Bin Did And What’s Bin Hid

Only four days after Donovan’s nineteenth birthday his successful debut album What’s Bin Did and What’s Bin Hid was released. It contains his popular hit single “Catch the Wind”. The music primarily consists of Donovan singing and playing mouth harp and acoustic guitar. Although Donovan was hailed as the British answer to Bob Dylan when he first emerged, his debut album actually established him as a distinctive talent in his own right.

Raymond Scott – Manhattan Research

Raymond Scott (1908-1994) was a renowned bandleader, composer and pianist from the 1930s to the 1950s. Many of his playful riffs, originally recorded from 1937 to 1939 by the Raymond Scott Quintette, are genetically encoded in every earthling, having covered by many artists while also being adapted for cartoons like Bugs Bunny, Daffy Duck, The Ren and Stimpy Show, The Simpsons and Animaniacs.

His Soothing Sounds for Baby (SSFB) trilogy showcased Scott as a pioneer of electronic music. His ambient minimalism ultimately became a source of inspiration for musicians like Terry Riley, Phillip Glass, Kraftwerk and Brian Eno. But SSFB couldn’t prepare the world for the exotic artifacts found on Manhattan Research Inc. MRI, first issued on Basta in 2000, contains 69 tracks recorded from 1956 to 1969—over two hours’ worth of Scott’s ground-breaking electronic work in adult dimensions. Forays into abstract musique concrete are heard alongside film soundtrack collaborations with a young pre-Muppet Jim Henson, and pan-galactic sonics seemingly beamed down from hovering UFOs. In addition, MRI presents some of the first TV and radio commercials to feature electronic music. MRI also features many of Scott’s instrumental inventions.

Music on Vinyl presents a new edition of MRI in a 3-LP set, including full track notes, a historical overview, and newly designed covers. The package contains an 8-page booklet, printed innersleeves and a free download coupon for the complete album. 750 copies of MRI are individually numbered and pressed on transparent vinyl.

Raymond Scott – Soothing Sounds For Baby Vol. 1-3

Scott recorded Soothing Sounds for Baby in 1963 using electronic devices such as the Ondioline, homemade rhythm and tone generators, and tape echo. This series of “aural toys” was designed for babies in three age groups (1-6 months, 6-12 months, and 12-18 months). The simple rhythms and melodies were intended to be pleasantly stimulating, while providing a quieting atmosphere of relaxation, warmth, and contentment.

Limited edition of 750 numbered copies on coloured vinyl: orange marbled vinyl (LP1), yellow marbled vinyl (LP2) and light blue marbled (LP3) vinyl. The 3 records are housed in printed innersleeve and a thick cardboard jacket. The package includes a download coupon containing all the tracks of the albums + an insert with credits and detailed information about this extraordinary release and as a special bonus; an informative booklet by the Gesell Institute of Child Development.

OST – My Fair Lady

My Fair Lady is a 1964 American musical drama film adapted from the 1956 Lerner and Loewe stage musical that was based on George Bernard Shaw’s 1913 stage play Pygmalion. It stars Audrey Hepburn as Eliza Doolittle, a Cockey working-class girl whom phonetics professor Rex Harrison (played by Henry Higgins) attempts to transform into someone who can pass for a cultured member of high society. The film became an instant classic, winning 8 Academy Awards and achieving commercial successes well. This soundtrack features all the songs from the film, plus 11 bonus tracks. It is released as a limited edition of 1000 individually numbered copies on transparent purple swirled vinyl.

Dizzy Mizz Lizzy – Alter Echo

Dizzy Mizz Lizzy skriver 2020 og bevæger sig, i det nye årti, hen ad mørkere stier. Dette viser bandet med deres nye
album ’Alter Echo’, som udkommer den 20. marts.
”Vi er trådt ind i de voksnes rækker, er i sync med os selv, og det giver frihed til at dyrke det, vi mærker løber i blodet på
os,”.

Ikke kun lydbilledet har ændret sig. Bandet er vokset siden deres sidste album, ’Forward In Reverse’ udkom tilbage i 2016.
”Vi skriver generelt længere sange i øjeblikket. Det er et lille opgør med den manglende tålmodighed. Hvorfor stresser vi
rundt? I vores frygt for at gå glip af noget, går vi i virkeligheden glip af en masse. Prøv at se, hvad der sker, hvis vi er i
samme stemning lidt længere tid,” siger Tim Christensen.

’Alter Echo’ udkommer på både CD og LP. Den første del af albummet indeholder de allerede udgivende singler ’California Rain’ og ’In The Blood’ indgår, hvorimod albummets anden del udgøres af det 23 minutter lange nummer ’Amelia’. Nummeret er inddelt i fem forskellige dele, som enten kan nydes separat eller som en helhed.

”Amelia udformede sig som ét langt nummer fordi det bare gav mening og ikke kunne være anderledes. Når der ikke er nogle regler for hvad pladen skal indeholde og musikken ligesom bare får lov til at udvikle sig, så ender man med et nummer på 23 minutter.”

Elvis Presley – On Stage

On Stage is a live album by legendary American singer Elvis Presley. Recorded in Las Vegas in 1969-1970, the album was a follow-up to From Memphis to Vegas/From Vegas to Memphis. Unlike its predecessor, On Stage is focused on songs that weren’t associated with Elvis previously. The album features the worldwide number one single “The Wonder of You”, written by Baker Knight and originally recorded by Vince Edwards. Some other notable songs include “Sweet Caroline” (Neil Diamond), “Yesterday” (The Beatles) and “Proud Mary” (Creedence Clearwater Revival). “See See Rider” would eventually become Elvis’ frequent opening songs during concerts up until his last show. The album brings Elvis’ charismatic stage presence straight to your living room, and contains nothing but classic songs to sing along to. Pressed on transparent red vinyl, this record is available as a limited edition of 2500 individually numbered copies.

Earth, Wind And Fire – That’s The Way Of The World

Earth, Wind & Fire’s sixth studio album That’s the Way of the World rose to No. 1 on both the Billboard 200 and Top Soul Albums charts. It was also the soundtrack for a 1975 motion picture of the same name. They won a Rock Music Award for the album in the category of Best Rhythm and Blues Album. The album is filled with gems ranging from the sweat funk of “Shining Star” to the gorgeous ballad “Reasons”.

That’s the Way of the World on black vinyl includes an insert.

Alter Bridge – AB III

The American rock/metal band Alter Bridge released their third album AB III in 2009. It was a new venture in which they combined progressive metal and hard rock. The album received acclaim from many music critics. Rob Laing from MusicRadar called it “one of the guitar albums of the year” and Rick Florino from Artistdirect gave the record a perfect 5 out of 5 score and said “it’s a sprawling masterpiece that illuminates just how brilliant this band truly is”. “Isolation”, the band’s most successful single to date, is one of the many highlights the band recorded for this album. It doesn’t matter if you like to call it a metal or a hard rock album, because it’s the music that speaks for itself.

Alter Bridge was formed by Creed bandmembers Mark Tremonti, Scott Phillips and Brian Marshall. They recruited vocalist Myles Kennedy, and have since released five albums, all of which charted in both the UK as well as the US charts.
