MUSIC ON VINYL STRATEGY: QUALITY RELEASES ONLY!!

In this first wave of February releases we have some new and old classic beauties!
Available from the 6th of February.

KINGS OF LEON – BECAUSE OF THE TIMES (2LP) – MOVLP473
Kings Of Leon's third album 'Because Of The Times´ from 2007 was their darkest effort yet. With the gloomy 'Knocked Up' and the poignant hit single 'On Call', it showed a band that was patiently maturing, without sounding forced or unnatural.
Originally this record had a limited run on vinyl; now Music On Vinyl is re-issuing it on 180 grams vinyl, audio sourced from the original master tapes, in a gatefold sleeve!

And of course, other Kings Of Leon classics couldn't stay behind... Music On Vinyl is also re-releasing 'Youth And Young Manhood' (MOVLP471) including the bonus track 'Talihina Sky' and 'Aha Shake Heartbreak' (MOVLP472) with the bonus track 'Where Nobody Knows', this time with completely re-mastered audio from the original master tapes and revised artwork with UV-spot varnish on the new gatefold sleeves!

BILL WITHERS – STILL BILL (1LP) – MOVLP379
After "Just As I Am" (MOVLP378) Music On Vinyl is proud to present the next Bill Withers gem, 'Still Bill'.
With the gospel-tinged inspirational anthem "Lean On Me", the grooving "Lonely Town, Lonely Street", the suspicious "Who Is He (And What Is He To You)?" and "Use Me", where he happily submits to being taken advantage of by his lover, "Still Bill", which now comes in a gatefold sleeve, is warm and easily accessible, and has a depth and complexity that probably makes this his best studio album ever.

BETH HART – 37 DAYS (2LP) – MOVLP485
All tracks on '37 Days' were recorded by Beth and her band after receiving numerous requests from fans and critics for an album that could convey the same emotion as her live shows did. It resulted in a very pure record, filled with songs about Beth's search for love and happiness. Music On Vinyl is proud to present the first ever vinyl release of this record in a gatefold sleeve!

ARCHIE BELL & THE DRELLS – STRATEGY (1LP) – MOVLP179
The R&B band from Houston, Texas scored several hits such as "I Can't Stop Dancing", "Tighten It Up", as well as the disco-thumping "Strategy". Their eponymous 1979 album made it to #37 in the R&B Charts, and Music On Vinyl has the honour to re-release it for the first time on vinyl since its original release.

KRISTIN HERSH – HIPS AND MAKERS (1LP) – MOVLP489
Kristin Hersh, famous for her work with Throwing Muses, gives us an intimate look at her articulate song craft with her mostly acoustic and sparingly arranged debut album, which was produced by Lenny Kaye (Patti Smith Group and Suzanne Vega) and includes the famous duet "Your Ghost" with R.E.M.'s Michael Stipe.
Music On Vinyl is proud to release this '90s classic record on 180 grams audiophile vinyl for the first time since its original release in 1994 with full colour insert!
