    Shrouded in mystery and the subject of much speculation and conjecture, few have ever had the opportunity to hear these forgotten gems from one of Gene Clark’s most prolifically creative periods. Until now. from the liner notes by John Einarson, author of Mr. Tambourine Man: The Life And Legacy of The Byrds’ Gene Clark. Finally available, the legendary Gene Clark Sings For You acetate appears on CD, 2-LP, and Digital June 15, 2018. In addition to the Sings For You 8 songs, this new release also features an additional five demos from a second acetate lent courtesy of The Rose Garden’s John Noreen, as well as one further demo of the song “Till Today.”

    The Rose Garden acetate and the “Till Today” demo were submitted to the band, The Rose Garden, with whom Clark had grown close, for consideration for their debut Atco album (also being reissued in expanded form at the same time as Sings For You). Produced for release by Grammy -winning producer, Cheryl Pawelski with restoration from Grammy-winning engineer, Michael Graves, this historic release features previously unseen photos and an essay by Gene Clark biographer, John Einarson.

    In 1968, Vince made a label switch from his long-time home, Fantasy Records, to his new label, Warner Bros. Records. For his inaugural album, he decided to re-interpret his Peanuts classics on Oh, Good Grief! In addition to the instantly recognizable Guaraldi sound of piano, bass, and drums, this time he added electric guitar and electric harpsichord to the mix. The record was a smash hit.

    Now, for its 50th anniversary, Omnivore Recordings is proud to present the album the way the world first heard it as stated on the original album’s back cover, “on shiny black vinyl.” Well, actually, this special pressing is “on shiny red vinyl!” Mastered by Kevin Gray and pressed at RTI, this timeless album has never sounded better.

    With songs like “Linus And Lucy,” the special was a hit and for over five decades not a holiday season goes by without an airing of the television classic. So potent and successful was the Peanuts/Guaraldi combination that Guaraldi went on to score a total of 15 Peanuts television specials and the first feature film.

    Grammy award winner Louie Vega is known worldwide as one of the finest creators and purveyors of house music, both as an individual artist / producer / dj and as partner with Kenny Dope in the renowned production team known as Masters At Work.

    His multiple musical talents have also brought him much acclaim in the genres of salsa, afro-beat, jazz, hip-hop and soul. Last year he reached another career milestone when his album “Louie Vega Starring...XXVIII” was nominated at the 2017 Grammys for Best Dance Album, which further solidified his position as one of the industry’s premier artist / producers.

    Louie’s connection with Nervous Records and it’s father / son founders Sam and Michael Weiss goes back to the label’s very early years, as Masters At Work gave the label some of its earliest hits along with its signature release “The Nervous Track” by Nuyorican Soul. Louie was always aware of the many disco hits that had been released by Sam on his Sam Records label back in the 70’s and 80’s. But it was not until recently that Louie suggested Michael send him the 24 inch multi -track masters of seminal Sam Records disco classics like Gary’s Gang “Keep On Dancing,” John Davis & The Monster Orchestra “I Can’t Stop,” Convertion “Let’s Do It,” Vicky D “This Beat Is Mine,” as well as several others.

    The multi-tracks are a treasure-trove, including musical contributions from some of disco era’s finest musicians and engineers. Going through the various percussion, horn and string tracks inspired Louie to create a series of remixes that became dancefloor anthems that topped the Traxsource and Beatport charts and reverberated on dancefloors worldwide. That response, and the common drive that Louie and Michael both share to constantly promote quality music that is both song and rhythm based, inspired them to take this endeavor a step further, and to create brand new songs. When Louie’s creative energies start flowing, his team knows to rise to the occasion. As the project was initially inspired by the Sam Records catalogue, CD 2 of the double CD contains 12 special tracks from the Sam Records catalogue re-edited and remastered by Louie to work for today’s music world.
