JOHNNY CASH -THE BOOTLEG SERIES VOL. 4: THE SOUL OF TRUTH (3LP) - MOVLP530
Johnny Cash is almost as well known for his spotted past as for his redemption.
This fourth volume of the Bootleg Series focuses on the religious side of The Man In Black, showcasing the best of his Gospel on three 180 grams audiophile vinyl albums.
Filled with songs of Faith that were recorded during the 1970's and 1980's, this is a collection of previously unreleased and out-of-print studio material (including an unreleased 1975 Gospel album) and features duets and collaborations with June Carter Cash, Rosanne Cash, Helen Carter, Rodney Crowell, Jessi Colter, and others.
The volume comes in a 10mm sleeve with a 20 page booklet filled with highly personal liner notes by his son John Carter Cash!
SAGITTARIUS - PRESENT TENSE (1LP) - MOVLP517
If there were ever two main characters in Sunshine Pop, they would be writers/producers/musicians Gary Usher and Curt Boettcher.
Gary was a personal friend of Brian Wilson and hence co-wrote and produced a lot of the early Beach Boys material. But he also had a hand in the careers of The Byrds and Dick Dale.
Curt also worked with the Beach Boys and the Byrds, and was a pioneer in the warm, cheerful and upbeat sounds with prominent vocal harmonies and sophisticated production techniques.
Put both of them in a studio and you get Sagittarius, whose 1967 debut 'Present Tense' captures the sounds of sunny California and locks it into its grooves perfectly.
Now available on vinyl for the first time in over 25 years with re-mastered audio!
