Starting Tomorrow, Rhino Will Start Your Ear Off Right
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.
First off, here’s what we’re releasing on vinyl:
