Exclusive vinyl only Record Store Day releases announced

Audiophile vinyl-only label Plane Groovy releases three exclusives for Record Store Day 2014

London, UK – Since starting his vinyl-only label Plane Groovy over two years ago, Chris Topham has been working towards supporting the annual Record Store Day event. Now, with almost 30 releases on the label, that time has come. On April 19th there will be three exclusives for RSD from Plane Groovy:

  • Curved Air “Live Atmosphere” (180g red transparent vinyl LP plus 7” single)

Chris says: “I grew up listening to Curved Air and was delighted to see they had reformed a few years ago, around the time that I was considering starting the label. It’s a thrill for me to be able to put out this sensational live album on heavyweight vinyl but the transfer from digital to analogue was not without its’ challenges. The tracks would not fit onto a single album without reducing the volume levels, which goes against everything I’m striving for in creating the best possible sound on vinyl. Not long enough for a double album, the perfect solution came to me courtesy of the Beach Boys “Holland” album. We’ve removed the live versions of both sides of the “Back Street Luv” smash hit single and these are now included with the album as a 7” single in a picture cover. The album is pressed on red transparent vinyl, limited to just 500 copies worldwide.

  • DBA – “Dreaming of England” (12” 180g blue transparent vinyl EP)

DBA is the dream team of Geoff Downes (Yes, Asia, Buggles) and Chris Braide (award-winning singer/songwriter/producer). Their first album “Pictures of You” was released on Plane Groovy in 2012 and received such glowing reviews that the decision was made to put it out on CD with extra tracks. This EP - with guest musicians Dave Gregory (XTC) and Lee Pomeroy (It Bites) – brings you up to date with DBA on vinyl. With just 500 copies available worldwide this record is highly collectible.

  • My Darling Clementine “The Lucky Bag” (10” EP)

Both MDC albums, released to universal acclaim, are available on Plane Groovy. Michael and Lou have been keen to take part in RSD and this retro-style 10” EP is the result. There are just 250 copies available, exclusive to Record Store Day and Michael Weston King has this to say:

"We were disappointed not to be able to contribute to Record Store Day in 2013 but are thrilled to do so this year. Like many music freaks of a 'certain age', we spent a lot of time in our teenage years hunting for a bargain, reading liner notes and studying credits, many hours ploughing through the racks of the local record shops. Yes, plural! SHOPS! Back then, there were lots of them. And the guys who ran them... they had stories to tell. That is why RSD is such a great event and it is vital to help keep the shops out there going and to encourage more to open. We can see it ourselves here in Birmingham, and in the cities we play... new stores are opening all the time. It is exciting, and who doesn't LOVE a great record shop!! As we tell everyone at our shows... vinyl is the future! See you in country and soul section."

Landmarq – “Entertaining Angels” available on vinyl for the first time – 27 April 2014

Chris says: “Plane Groovy was started with the aim of releasing albums on vinyl which had only previously been available digitally. Very quickly we were offered the chance to put out brand-new albums by current bands, but I’m still very keen to continue giving existing digital albums their vinyl debut. “Entertaining Angels” is just such a record, from 27 April it will be available as a heavyweight double album in a sumptuous gatefold cover with lyric insert. Following close liaison with the cutting technicians we’ve been able to include the music from both the regular CD and the bonus disc, giving a running time of around 99 minutes with no reduction of sound levels. With a run of just 500 copies, this is a very welcome addition to our repertoire of modern Prog releases.”

Plane Groovy releases are worked on individually, by music fans, rather than a major label production line. Each release has been designed with a collectors' eye in mind, enabling the discerning fan to not only hear the quality of the audio, but the quality of the product. This can be seen in not just in the Landmarq titles' sound quality, but in the richness of colour on the Curved Air and DBA vinyl printing - a quality that can be held in the hand and stands out from the crowd.
