THE RUNDOWN

Brookvale Records proudly presents a new vinyl series from one of the progenitors of the jamband genre, the founders of the H.O.R.D.E. Tour, and the architects of some of the biggest hits of the ’90s… BLUES TRAVELER. The Grammy® Award-winning blues rock legends have sold over ten million albums worldwide and are set to release their highly-anticipated 12th studio album, Blow Up The Moon on 4/7/15.

To the delight of dedicated fans around the world, the band’s first four albums now come to vinyl as brand new 2-LP sets in individually numbered, foil-stamped packaging. Each title has been fully remastered for vinyl by Jeffrey Norman of Mockingbird Mastering and is available on both stunning multicolor vinyl and 180-gram black vinyl. Quantities of both variants are extremely limited. Each multicolor variant is limited to only 750 copies (gold foil-stamped), while the 180-gram variants will be limited to just 250 copies each (silver foil-stamped).

THE BUZZ

Since their official release in February, there’s been a ton of buzz swirling around our Blues Traveler Vinyl Series.

Read the Modern Vinyl review here.

See what Billboard had to say about our chart success here.

ICYMI: Three of our Blues Traveler albums landed on the Billboard 200 (week of 3/14/15) — including the VERY FIRST appearance of Blues Traveler (1990) on the charts! In fact, all four of our reissues ranked on five separate Billboard charts for the week of 3/14/15. This also marks the first time any Brookvale release has charted, and it’s all thanks to fans like you. According to Billboard, the albums’ chart positions are “entirely from sales of four of the group’s classic albums rereleased on vinyl.”

 

See our recent Facebook post on the Billboard success, including photos of each album’s chart placement:

COMING THIS RECORD STORE DAY BLACK FRIDAY

FROM BROOKVALE RECORDS & ENJOY THE RIDE RECORDS,

THE 20TH ANNIVERSARY COLLECTOR’S EDITION OF

THE SELF-TITLED DEBUT ALBUM FROM NU-METAL FOUNDERS KORN.

“KoЯn was almost solely responsible for the tidal wave of change that subsequently swept the metal scene.”
                                             – Joel McIver, Nu-Metal: The Next Generation of Rock & Punk

Originally released in October 1994, the eponymous debut album from nu-metal founders Korn now comes to vinyl for the first time in the United States. Since its original release in 1994, Korn has sold over ten million copies worldwide and is the album widely credited with establishing the nu-metal genre. Now it’s coming to an independent record store near you this Black Friday.

Arriving 11/28/14 as our 2014 RSD Black Friday indie exclusive, this very special 20th Anniversary Collector’s Edition has been remastered for vinyl and comes in a spectacular gatefold jacket. The 2-LP set has been pressed from lacquers cut at Lucky Lacquers for optimal sound quality. Limited to 1500 copies on black vinyl, Side D features an incredible laser etching of the album’s iconic cover art.

This must-have ‘90s classic arrives November 28th, 2014 as a Record Store Day Black Friday indie exclusive. And as if this release couldn’t get any more exciting, a very small number of Clear Vinyl LPs have been randomly inserted into the black vinyl run.


Pre-order information coming soon.

Blues Traveler Latest

Posted On September - 18 - 2014 ADD COMMENTS

All of us here at Brookvale would first like to thank every single one of you who’ve pre-ordered from our upcoming Blues Traveler Vinyl Series. Whether you pre-ordered a single copy of Four or both Blues Traveler Bundles, we are thrilled at the overwhelming response to these titles! Like you, we can’t wait to get them in our hands. So, what’s the latest, you ask?

 

TEST PRESSING PROBLEMS…

As some of you may know, we approved the test pressing for Four the same day it arrived from our manufacturer. The sonics were amazing and the test pressings themselves were flat, quiet, and just about as perfect as can be. Unfortunately, the same could not be said of the other three albums.

 

We pride ourselves on incredible attention to detail and providing only the highest quality vinyl releases. Therefore, we cannot in good faith approve any test pressings that do not meet those standards. Even though we knew doing so would cause a significant delay in their release, we rejected the tests for Blues Traveler, Travelers & Thieves, and Save His Soul. The band’s label at UMG rejected them as well.

 

SO, WHAT NOW?

So where does that leave us? Rejecting test pressings is not uncommon — they’re intended to catch problems before the whole run is pressed — but given the overwhelming manufacturing demands these days rejection can result in a much longer delay than it might have a few years ago. So we started over. We addressed the audio issues and had new plates cut. Once we receive the second round of test pressings, which are expected here next week, we hope to approve them immediately and move quickly to the final pressing of these three titles.

 

If all goes smoothly, we hope these great albums will hit shelves before the end of the year. We sincerely apologize for the continued delay and for any inconvenience these delays have caused. Please understand, our number one priority is the quality of these releases, from the mastering to the vinyl to the jackets. We refuse to take any shortcuts, and we appreciate your patience as we make certain our Blues Traveler Vinyl Series will exceed your expectations. In the meantime, we will accept refund requests from anyone wishing to cancel a pre-order. Simply contact us by email or phone (631) 587-7722 and we’ll take care of you.

 

THEY’LL BE WORTH THE WAIT!

Please stay tuned right here and on our Facebook page for the new street date and much more as we finally get all four albums to press. Of course, while we continue production we urge you to get your pre-orders in ASAP, as these are extremely limited edition pressings. Visit our webstore for all the details or to pre-order now. We’ll have plenty of photos and video as we move along, but for now here’s a super cool behind-the-scenes clip of Four‘s jacket hot off the presses, from our good friends at Stoughton Printing Co.!

Last week we announced our official Record Store Day piece for 2014 — an acoustic masterpiece celebrating it’s 40th anniversary this year — Jorma Kaukonen’s QUAHThough the music itself is always the most vital and exciting component of any vinyl LP, today we’re showcasing another important part of every Brookvale Records release… the jacket!

 

This custom designed gatefold jacket is unlike anything we’ve ever done before, and there’s a lot to love about it. Watch this short video “tour” and see for yourself: 

 

 

Thanks to the amazing Stoughton Printing Co. for working with us on every detail of this incredible jacket. As always, let us know what you think in the comments here or on our YouTube channel!

BROOKVALE RECORDS’ OFFICIAL RSD 2104 RELEASE IS… 

 

JORMA KAUKONEN

 

QUAH

Selected as an official Record Store Day release for 2014, the legendary Jefferson Airplane and Hot Tuna guitarist’s enduring debut solo album returns to vinyl on the 40th anniversary of its original release. To celebrate this monumental 1974 album, we’re re-issuing it in two very limited edition colors.
The beautiful Sunshine Yellow vinyl color will be available at participating Record Store Day independent retailers nationwide. In addition, we have pressed a very limited Yellow & Red Split vinyl variant exclusively for our retail outlet on Long Island, Looney Tunes CDs. This gorgeous color is limited to 500 copies and will be available exclusively in-store on Record Store Day.

Produced by Jack Casady, Quah was recorded shortly after the breakup of Jefferson Airplane in 1972 and released two years later. Now painstakingly remastered from the original analog tapes by expert Bay-area engineer Jeffrey Norman, this hard-to-find folk-blues classic sounds better than ever. Kaukonen’s brilliant finger-picking guitarwork shines through like never before on old favorites like “Genesis” and “Hamar Promenade.”
Much like the album’s distinctive sound, Quah ‘s cover art is instantly recognizable. That’s why, for this very special anniversary release, we turned to the prestigious Stoughton Printing Company for the album’s jacket. Their “Old Style” Tip-On Gatefold Single-Pocket Jacket™ is rich in style and detail, while the combination of a matte finish with high gloss spot UV coating allows the album’s beautiful “Flying Angel” painting (by Kaukonen’s then-wife Margareta) to leap off the cover like never before.

CUSTOM GATEFOLD JACKET

Gatefold
Every LP is encased in a poly-lined sleeve and individually hand-numbered on the jacket by the manufacturer. Brookvale Records is proud to give new life to this great album, long considered an acoustic masterpiece from one of the world’s premier guitarists. On vinyl again for the first time in decades, Jorma Kaukonen’s Quah boasts evocative imagery and timeless authenticity from start to finish.

Year-End Wrap-Up & 2014 Preview

Greetings and Happy New Year, everyone!

 

It’s hard to believe, but another year is coming to a close! We’re proud to say 2013 was the most successful and exciting year in the history of Brookvale Records, and we owe it all to YOU.

 

So before we go any further, all of us here at Brookvale would like to offer a heartfelt THANK YOU for all the kind words, support, and feedback you’ve shared over the last year. We love what we do, and it’s always satisfying to see how many of you appreciate all the hard work we put into each and every release. We can’t wait for you to see everything Brookvale Records has in store for 2014!

 

But first, for those of you who may be new to Brookvale Records, here’s a quick recap of the year that was… 2013. It began with Dream Theater’s Images and Words flying off the shelves in both Black and Red/Gold vinyl. The demand for this release was just incredible and both colors quickly sold out. In April we proudly released the classic Porno For Pyros self-titled debut album on Tie-Dye and Blue vinyl, both of which have also completely sold out. Over the summer we brought Ace Frehley’s Anomaly back to vinyl in two incredible new colors, to the delight of KISS fans everywhere. In November we presented our fourth official Record Store Day release, Life of Agony’s River Runs Red, and have been overwhelmed by the response here in New York and from metal fans across the world. We also debuted the next three volumes of our Dick’s Picks Vinyl Series, bringing the classic Grateful Dead releases to vinyl for the very first time. Our most recent release, the 5-LP 180g Dick’s Picks Volume 5 box set out 12/10, is currently featured on the front page of the Grateful Dead’s official website Dead.net and is widely being heralded as our best-sounding release in the Dick’s Picks series to date.

 

More information on all our 2013 releases can be found here on our website! Simply use the search box in the right sidebar of our home page, or visit our archived posts!

 

We’ve got big plans for the next year, and today we’re excited to announce two incredible new releases coming to Brookvale Records in 2014! Just scroll down for more details. Thanks again to each and every one of you for all the support this past year… keep the feedback coming! If you haven’t already, be sure to connect with us on Facebook, Twitter, and Instagram. We’ll return with the next Brookvale Bulletin in early January. In the meantime, why not give your vinyl-loving friend or family member an early present and forward them this newsletter? It sure beats the hell out of another t-shirt or some useless lottery tickets (send the lottery tickets to us instead). Thanks for reading… and on behalf of the entire Brookvale Records family, have a happy and safe holiday season!

 

 

All the best,

 COMING SOON TO BROOKVALE RECORDS:

 

 

Quah

The 1974 album from Jorma Kaukonen of Jefferson Airplane and Hot Tuna fame

 –

A collaboration with vocalist Tom Hobson, Quah was Kaukonen’s first solo effort after the breakup of Jefferson Airplane. The album is a folk-blues masterpiece, and it may be one of the most underrated albums of the ’70s. Brookvale Records is proud to bring new life to this hard-to-find classic. The album is currently being remastered for vinyl from the original tapes by famed engineer Jeffrey Norman of Mockingbird Mastering. It is slated for an early 2014 release on black vinyl and limited edition numbered yellow vinyl.

The London Howlin’ Wolf Sessions

The 1971 “super session” LP from blues legend Howlin’ Wolf

 –

Recorded May 2-7, 1970 at Olympic Sound Studios in London, the London Howlin’ Wolf Sessions were an attempt at recording an original blues master alongside members of the “new” generation of blues players. Countless guest musicians appear on the record, most notably Eric Clapton, Steve Winwood, Bill Wyman, and Charlie Watts. The resulting LP set the standard for blues “super session” projects for years to come. After an exhaustive search, Brookvale Records painstakingly tracked down the album’s original master tapes in London. Engineer Jeffrey Norman is now hard at work remastering this blues classic for release in early 2014.
