New originals

We're excited to launch 3 albums on vinyl for the very first time in their existence! Adding 4 classic albums and a newbie to the mix, this week's release schedule boasts a wide variety of styles: from Alternative Rock to Mambo, Prog Metal to Soul.

GOV'T MULE - LIFE BEFORE INSANITY

Life Before Insanity is Gov't Mule's fifth album, released in 2000 to great critical acclaim. Precious tracks on this album include the haunting title track, the powerful "Wandering Child", "No Need To Suffer" and "Lay Your Burden Down" (the latter two are featuring Ben Harper on vocals). The most hit sensitive track proved to be "Bad Little Doggie", a ZZ-Top like burner, which received lots of airplay.

Life Before Insanity was the last album featuring Allman Brothers Band bassist Allen Woody, who tragically died just six months after its release.

DREAM THEATER - SIX DEGREES OF INNER TURBULENCE

The 6th studio album of Dream Theater is a concept album in its truest form. As the title implies, the albums contains six songs, each dealing with a facet of inner struggle. Themes like alcoholism, loss of faith and self isolation are dealt with in a true virtuoso manner. The second disc contains one 42-minute long song, divided over two sides, telling six stories about various mental illnesses like autism and schizophrenia.

Music On Vinyl has the distinct honour to present this masterpiece on 180 gram audiophile vinyl!

ALTER BRIDGE - BLACKBIRD

2007's Blackbird marked the creative launch of Alter Bridge, the follow-up project to members of Alternative Rock radio's favorite band Creed.

Blackbird is a heavy, groovy and aggressive album. Alternating acoustic interludes and hard-hitting choruses, the band's new found songwriting freedom resulted in a fresh start for this Florida based Rock band. The D-side has an amazing etch!

10 CC - HOW DARE YOU

How Dare You (1976) is the fourth album by these British Art-Pop Rockers. After attaining worldwide success with their hit "I'm Not In Love", 10cc returned with a varied set of songs, often tongue-in-cheek humor and eccentric songwriting. Hits "I'm Mandy, Fly Me" and "Art For Art's Sake" are little stories with wonderful poppy hooks and catchy choruses. This is 10cc at their creative peak!

Its brilliant cover art was designed by the recently deceased Storm Thorgersson of Hipgnosis.

MARVIN GAYE - MIDNIGHT LOVE

Midnight Love was Marvin Gaye's final album, conceived in 1982 after a long recluse in Oostende, Belgium. It became his swansong album after Gaye went through a rough time, secluded from the mainstream and finding out where he belonged. We can safely say, it would be in the studio.

He wrote every song on Midnight Love himself, which culminated in the smash hit "Sexual Healing". We can only guess what gems Gaye would have produced in his later years, as his life was taken by his own father just 18 months later.

TITO PUENTE - DANCE MANIA

Dance Mania is Tito Puente's all-time favorite and bestselling album from 1958. Helped by an impeccable, vivid stereo production (as part of RCA's aptly named original "Living Stereo" series), this infectious mix of latin dance tracks will get anyone up on their feet.

Featuring the inimitable Ray Baretto on percussion, this record should belong in everyone's Jazz, Soul, Latin or World music record collection.

URIAH HEEP - LIVE

Live 1973 is the definitive live recording of the classic Uriah Heep line up. The band was recorded before an ecstatic crowd in Birmingham, UK, delivering a set of heavy Rock classics with all volume knobs on 11.
Live 1973 is a double LP full of Uriah Heep classics and a testament to the band's legendary live performances. Songs like "Traveller In Time" and "Love Machine" literally burst out of the grooves.

BILLY JOEL - 52ND STREET

After the massive success of The Stranger [MOVLP170], Joel hit back with 52nd Street (1978) - further building on his unique sound and songwriting formula that brought him to the top of the charts.

Billy jazzed up his act, carried by producer Phil Ramone's slick producing style, tightly fitting the melodrama and uplifting effect of Joels music. The melodies Billy churned out on 52nd Street remain some of the best he ever wrote.

BURNING RED IVANHOE - BRI

Burnin Red Ivanhoe is the finest export product out of Danmark, playing a special brand of psychedelic Prog Rock since 1967. Sharing the stage with Jimi Hendrix, Black Sabbath and Uriah Heep, these guys have seen it all, front row. Combining Jazz-Rock with R&B, Blues and psychedelia, the band stretched musical boundaries since their first album M144.

On BRI, they have returned to their original approach of singing in Danish, successfully combining poetry with Rock music. Must be heard to believe!
