You know it’s our goal is to bring you great music. Sometimes, it’s records/artists you know, sometimes it’s music from artists you didn’t know existed and sometimes it’s a new discovery altogether. Or other times, we’re giving a fantastic record a second chance. March has quite a few of those, with The Cold Of The Morning from Sid Selvidge, Worlds Around The Sun by Bayeté (Todd Cochran), and now Where’s Your Love Been from Sandra Rhodes, three albums from over 40 years ago, which never had a chance to truly find a wide audience. We’d like to correct that.
Sandra’s career began early, and she experienced success as a songwriter, as well as a backing vocalist, performing on Al Green’s classic Hi Records sides. Where’s Your Love Been was released in 1972, and it never had a chance to find its fan base. That will change on March 18.
We’re starting off the year with some incredible releases, let’s jump right in:
Lone Justice This Is Lone Justice: The Vaught Tapes, 1983
CD/Digital/LP (first pressing on translucent red vinyl)
Iain Matthews The Art Of Obscurity (first US release in 15 years!)
The Dream Syndicate The Day Before Wine And Roses
Camper Van Beethoven Our Beloved Revolutionary Sweetheart
Camper Van Beethoven Key Lime Pie
Bob Mould Workbook 25
Sid Selvidge The Cold Of The Morning
CD/Digital/LP (first pressing on translucent blue vinyl)

Omnivore Recordings is proud to be involved in Iain Matthews’ first U.S. release in fifteen years, The Art Of Obscurity! More than that, we’re expanding our horizons, in working with Iain and Pledge Music, and making it even more special. We ask that you visit Iain’s Pledge Music site to find pieces of his storied legacy, available in limited numbers, as a way to welcome him back, not only into the U.S. marketplace, but into your music collection. There are a number of one-of-a-kind collectables, including his prototype, mahogany guitar used on tour in the late 1980s. While we are honored to work with this legend, there is nothing better than Iain offering his fans personalized memorabilia from his extensive archives. The old meets the new. That’s Omnivore. And, that’s Iain Matthews.
