Rhino has made it a point to reissue classic albums on 180-gram vinyl on a regular basis. These are the latest to get that treatment. You're welcome.
Deep Purple, In Rock: This may have been the fourth studio album released by Deep Purple, but for some of the band’s fans, it might as well be their debut, as it’s the first album to feature the so-called Mark II lineup of Ritchie Blackmore, Ian Gillan, Roger Glover, Jon Lord, and Ian Paice. The seven-track album is probably best known for the songs “Speed King,” which opens the proceedings, and “Child in Time,” a epic track which lasts more than 10 minutes. Although it’s not as well known in the US, having topped out at #143 on the Billboard Top 200 Albums chart, Deep Purple’s British fans are far more familiar with In Rock, which was the band’s big UK breakthrough, hitting #4 on the album charts.
Hey, kids! Remember last summer when we released the limited-edition vinyl box set featuring all of the albums released by The Replacements during their tenure on Twin/Tone Records? Sure you do! And now it’s time for us to release a similar set for the studio albums they issued whilst on Sire Records!
Can you guess what it’s going to be called? That’s right: The Sire Years!
It’s that time again: there’s a new release from a-ha.
Given how hugely successful the Norwegian trio remains around the world, it’s always a little amusing to think about how many Americans still view them as only having a couple of hits. In fact, the band just celebrated their 30th anniversary last year, releasing a new album, Cast in Steel, their 10th full-length studio effort to date.
