Mark Klinkhamer, labelmanager at Music On Vinyl: 'Universal Music was high on our wish-list so we are indeed very happy to partner with them. We've been looking at their catalogue since the beginning of our label and I'm very happy to welcome them to our roster. Bringing along titles which are basically 'must haves' for every music fan, I am sure they will even appeal more tocontemporary buyers once they've been given our audiophile treatment'.
The first batch of Universal titles to be released will include the following albums: Joe Cocker's 'Mad Dogs', Camel's 'Snowgoose', Caravan's 'Caravan', JJ Cale's 'Naturally', Lynyrd Skynyrd's 'Pronounced Leh'nerd Skin'nerd', Solomon Burke & De Dijk's 'Hold On Tight', Tom Waits' 'Franks Wild years', Pulp's 'Different Class', Queens Of The Stone Age's 'Lullabies to paralyze' and Miles Davis' 'L'ascenceur pour l'echafaud'. Once these first 10 vinyls are released, they will be followed by titles from a.o. The Cure,Bob Marley, Beck and Bachman Turner Overdrive.
It goes without saying that some of the releases will get the special Music On Vinyl treatment. For example, Queens Of The Stone Age's 'Lullabies to paralyze' will be released as a limited edition, colored vinyl, etched D-side edition.
