Keeping The Faith in Music

Keeping The Faith, Ry Cooder, Within Temptation, Quatermass, San Fermin, Winger, Focus and Built to Spill

Music On Vinyl presents Keeping The Faith, two brand new releases full of all that soul music has to offer. 28 Stompin' Northern Soul Classics consists of Northern Soul classics from the late '60s until the early '70s, including artists like Jimmy James, The Sapphires, The Showstoppers, and Kim Davis. This title is available as a limited edition of 750 individually numbered copies on gold vinyl and the package includes an insert. The second volume, 21 Modern Soul Classics, concentrates on the period from the late sixties to the late seventies when the shift between traditional and modern soul was taking place. The record features artists like Carl Douglas, Duprees, and Larry Saunders. This volume is available as a limited edition of 750 individually numbered copies on solid turquoise vinyl and the package includes an insert. Chicken Skin Music is the fifth studio album by the American musician Ry Cooder. This early landmark in his way to popularize roots music from both North and Central America is the equivalent of the Buena Vista Social Club, which was released 20 years later. This title is available as a limited edition of 1000 individually numbered copies on yellow vinyl and the package includes an insert.

An Acoustic Night at the Theatre is the second live album by Dutch symphonic metal band Within Temptation. This acoustic album features some of their best-known songs, like “Stand My Ground”, “Frozen”, and “What Have You Done”. The release is available as a limited edition of 5000 individually numbered copies on red & black marbled vinyl. The British progressive rock band Quatermass existed from 1969 until 1971, and during those days they released one album, the self-titled Quatermass. The keyboard-driven album gained cult status during the years and received credits from both critics as prog rock fans. This record is available as a limited edition of 1000 individually numbered copies on silver vinyl. The Cormorant I ushers in a new era for San Fermin, who envision the eight-track collection as the first of two eventual full-length releases encompassing the full scope of the new project. The release is available as a limited edition of 500 individually numbered copies on black & white swirled vinyl and the package includes an insert.

The American rock band Winger released their third studio album Pull in 1993. Their music changed from the glam metal to a more aggressive and darker musical style. Pull is available as a limited edition of 750 individually numbered copies on orange & yellow mixed vinyl. In 1973 Focus were at their peak! Their live album Focus at The Rainbow featured some of the band's best and most well-known tracks: "Sylvia," "Hocus Pocus," "Focus II," and more. The title is available as a limited edition of 500 individually numbered copies on yellow vinyl and the package includes an insert. Ancient Melodies of the Future is the fifth full-length album released by indie rock band Built to Spill. With this record, they expanded on the big sound that they crafted with Keep It Like a Secret. This release is available as a limited edition of 750 individually numbered copies on gold-colored vinyl and the package includes a fold-out poster.
