ANOTHER GREAT WAVE OF FEBRUARY RELEASES

We have picked these awesome titles for another batch of this month.
Available from the 20th of February.

THE RED DEVILS – KING KING (2LP) – MOVLP509
Their only full length album, 'King King' is seen as a true Blues classic and Music On Vinyl is honoured to release this album on vinyl for the very first time.
To celebrate its 20th anniversary, we decided to do something special:
the first 1,000 copies of this double gatefold sleeve album are on bright red vinyl!
Also, this release includes an insert.

TRICKY – MAXINQUAYE (1LP) – MOVLP507
After being a member of the Massive Attack collective, Tricky released his solo debut 1995.
'Maxinquaye' is one of those albums that brought 'triphop' to the forefront, entering the UK charts at #2 on its release despite a shocking lack of airplay, and ending up topping many, many year-end lists.
Music On Vinyl releases this album in a gatefold sleeve and including an insert.

STATUS QUO – HELLO! (1LP) – MOVLP229
1973's 'Hello!' was their first album to top the UK charts, the first to feature the band's iconic logo and the first on which they wrote all the songs themselves. Now released on vinyl for the first time since 1973, with the original B-side of their hit "Caroline", "Joanne" as an added bonus track!
The 3mm jacket has spot UV with silver lettering and includes an insert with lyrics.

JOHN MAYER – WHERE THE LIGHT IS (4LP) – MOVLP444
This album captures the multi-Grammy Award-winning, Platinum-selling singer/songwriter John Mayer in the element where fans love him the most: live on stage!
This special concert includes 3 different sets (22 songs): an acoustic performance, a rare set with John Mayer Trio (with Steve Jordan and Pino Palladino), as well as a set featuring Mayer's full band.
To add to the excitement, this release comes in a 15mm sleeve with printed innersleeves.

JILL SCOTT – BEAUTIFULLY HUMAN: WORDS & SOUNDS VOL. 2 (2LP) – MOVLP407
Four years after 'Who Is Jill Scott? Words And Sounds Vol. 1' (MOVLP406), she released the follow-up.
It was worth the wait: the album immediately went to the top of the R&B/Hip Hop album charts, while "Cross My Mind" won her her first Grammy in 2005. The album floats between R&B, Hip Hop, Soul & Funk, and provides some of the best BoomBap moments of the decade.
This release includes an insert.

RON SEXSMITH – BLUE BOY (1LP) – MOVLP488
His 4th album, produced by Steve Earle- offers 14 pieces of evidence that this man ranks among the most gifted singer/songwriters working today. After his latest album 'Long Player Late Bloomer' (MOVLP262) we thought this release would make a nice addition to our catalogue.
The album comes in a gatefold sleeve.

DONOVAN – THE HURDY GURDY MAN (1LP) – MOVLP440
Donovan's songwriting for 'The Hurdy Gurdy Man' centered around eerie, trance-like "drones" on songs as "Peregrine", "The River Song" and "Tangier" and pop music on most of the other tracks.
The songs feature inventive accompaniment, combined with Donovan's usual spot-on delivery!
