Quiet summer, big releases!

While most of you are on a well deserved holiday, we produced these great releases for some dancing, rocking and dreaming during nice summer evenings!

DREADZONE – THE GOOD, THE BAD & THE DREAD (BEST OF) (2LP) – MOVLP330
Greg Dread and Leo Williams (B.A.D.'s rhythm section) were creating the perfect blend somewhere between the technological and the organic.
It's a sound that leaves room for the listener to put themselves in the mix and dance like nobody's watching…
Basically if you're standing still at the end of this cinematic break beat dub reggae soundtrack, you can't dance.

LAURA NYRO – ELI & THE 13TH CONFESSION (1LP) – MOVLP248
The style of the New York-born singer, songwriter, and pianist Laura Nyro was a mixture of New York pop, jazz, gospel, rhythm and blues, show tunes, rock and soul.
This is her 2nd album containing themes of passion, love, romance, death, and drugs.
Nyro also performed songs of this album at the legendary 1967 Monterey Pop Festival.

ELVIS PRESLEY – THAT'S THE WAY IT IS (1LP) – MOVLP366
Presley's 40th album, originally released in November 1970, consists of seven tracks recorded in the studio in Nashville during several marathon sessions in June 1970 plus five tracks from his August 1970 show at The International Hotel in Las Vegas.

SPIN – SPIN (1LP) – MOVLP347
After the Dutch band Ekseption fell apart in 1976 some of its members started a new band called Spin.
They recorded and released their eponymous debut album in the same year.
Music on Vinyl offers this completely remastered Dutch Jazz-funk cult-record on 180 grams audiophile vinyl.
Now, you'll be able to spin this on HQ vinyl for the first time since its original release in 1976.

VARIOUS ARTISTS – AIN'T I'M A DOG (2LP) – MOVLP298
Rockabilly; A mutant version of country music (then often referred to as 'hillbilly'), raw and laced with the electricity of the blues and the romp of boogie-woogie.
It was the sound that gave birth to Elvis Presley and Carl Perkins's careers to name a few torchbearers of the genre.
After the release of the 'Whistle Bait' collection (MOVLP253) it's time for the sequel
'Ain't I'm a Dog': another carefully-compiled collection of 25 rockabilly rave-ups from the 50's and early 60's.
