16th June: Seasick Steve is set to release his new album in one format only - vinyl!
The album cover tells you exactly what to expect - no digital. So, no streaming on phones, no CD or any other format. ‘Only On Vinyl’ will be released on standard black vinyl and limited-edition coloured blue vinyl.
‘Only on Vinyl’ is dedicated to lovers of vinyl everywhere and was recorded ‘old school’ by Steve and long-time drummer Dan Magnusson. The recording sessions were in Steve’s barn, recording onto a 16 track 2“tape machine and mixed to 1/2” tape by award-winning recording engineer/mixer Vance Powell.
Completing the true analogue process, Steve has used a tape to vinyl transfer with the lacquers being cut on a Neumann VMS82 lathe called ‘Destiny’, by Lewis Hopkin at Star Delta Mastering.
No computers were used in the making of this record at all!
‘Only on Vinyl’ finds Seasick Steve on top form pulling riffs, grooves and melodies out of thin air to deliver new classic tracks such as ‘Put That In Your Pipe’, ‘How Do You Do’ and ‘Train Wreck’.
Fans are sure to love the sequel to a firm fan favourite in the brand new ‘Down On The Farm 2’ and ‘Crash & Burn’ is sure to become a huge live favourite with fans old and new, as Steve delivers one of his greatest sing-along choruses on record.
