According to Rolling Stone, Capitol will continue their "From the Capitol Vaults" vinyl series with 11 more classic albums being re-released on vinyl on June 16th.

Among the highlights in this batch of vinyl reissues are Plastic Ono Band's Live Peace in Toronto 1969 and the Beach Boys' Surf's Up and Sunflower albums.


Live Peace in Toronto 1969 was recorded on September 13, 1969, and includes Eric Clapton on guitar, Klaus Voormann on bass and future Yes drummer Alan White on drums. The line-up is filled out by Lennon on lead vocals and rhythm guitar and Ono on vocals.

Sunflower from 1970 was The Beach Boys' thirteenth studio album, twenty-first official album release, and their first under their contract with Reprise Records. Surf's Up was released in 1971, and includes the song Surf's Up which was originally intended for the Smile album.

Capitol/EMI to reissue some classic vinyl
[Posted by Dave Haber on Friday, 06/13/08 9:20 am] [Permalink] [Full Blog] [Tweet] [Facebook]

Widely covered last week in the news was a story about a Portland, Oregon, music store chain that mistakenly checked "LP" instead of "CD" when ordering the latest popular album. When the box of LPs arrived, they put them out, just to see what would happen, and were surprised to learn that they sold out quickly.

Today, according to Rolling Stone magazine, a rep at Capitol/EMI confirms that EMI will be releasing fifteen of their most popular albums on vinyl on August 15. Included in these new reissues will be Paul McCartney and Wings' Band On The Run, John Lennon's Imagine and the Beach Boys' Pet Sounds.


EMI says each reissue will replicate the original LP, including the original artwork and packaging. Pre-orders for the vinyl indicate that they will be priced in the $20 to $30 range.

While this is welcomed news, the "new popularity of vinyl" comes as no surprise to those many Beatles and Beach Boys fans who never stopped listening to LPs in the first place.

By the way, the best selling LP now at that store in Portland? Abbey Road.
