A few months ago, we began the process of reissuing some of Van Morrison’s most notable albums on 180-gram vinyl. Today, that process continues, this time with the trio of albums that Van delivered as he entered the 1980s.

Earlier this week, Black Sabbath kicked off “The End,” a jaunt which will serve as the iconic band's final tour. This is, of course, a highly momentous occasion, one which warrants a celebration, which is why we've released deluxe editions of the band's first three studio albums: Black Sabbath, Paranoid, and Master of Reality.

It hasn't been so terribly long since we released Rock 'n' Roll Fantasy: The Very Best of Bad Company, but when we did so, it was only digitally and on CD. In other words, those of you who were looking to buy it on vinyl were left wanting.

Now, however, your rock 'n' roll fantasy has come true, thanks to our Start Your Ear Off Right campaign: it's finally available on 180-gram vinyl.

If you read yesterday's post about our Start Your Ear Off Right campaign, then you already know that we've just reissued the Velvet Underground's classic Live at Max's Kansas City on CD as well as on a 2-LP set 180-gram vinyl, newly remastered for your listening enjoyment. What you may not know, however, is the origin story behind the album.

Picture it: August 23, 1970, New York City. The Velvet Underground, now on Atlantic Records, are nearing the end of a nine-week engagement at the nightclub known as Max's Kansas City, one that kicked off on June 24 and is set to wrap up on August 28. They've been playing songs from their career up to that point, of course, but they've also been throwing in a fair amount of numbers from their yet-to-be-released album Loaded.

Now that we’re all settled into 2016, it’s time to remind you of something new we’ve got for this new year of ours that – hooray! – kicks off tomorrow.

As most music consumers know, January tends to be a month that’s relatively devoid of new releases, with record companies often still frazzled from the holiday season that they’re still just trying to get their heads together for the first few weeks of the year. We here at Rhino are doing our darnedest to try and change that, and our first step involves our Start Your Ear Off Right campaign, with which we’ll be delivering a variety of exclusive reissues from our back catalog that’ll have you chomping at the bit to place an order.
