At Cisco Music, we made the decision to release Jennifer Warnes’ masterpiece Famous Blue Raincoat as a deluxe, 3-lp 45 RPM box set for many reasons. Mainly we were looking for a way to bring Ms. Warnes’ original 1/2″ mix-down tapes as close to fans and audiophiles as possible. While this worked out splendidly (Jennifer commented upon hearing the test pressings that it was the best she had ever heard it), the cost of the set was prohibitive for some and playing six sides (with bonus tracks) was cumbersome.
Now, as Impex Records, we have finally created the Famous Blue Raincoat for everyone. In keeping with the tone of the original 1986 release, we have remastered (again with Bernie Grundman using Jennifer’s tapes) the original tracks onto a single LP. The back jacket will contain new art featuring archival photos. Once again(and to our great satisfaction) Jennifer Warnes personally oversaw all aspects of the production, giving you full confidence that this new 33 RPM Famous Blue Raincoat will be top-notch in every way. Anything less would be unacceptable for one of the world’s greatest audiophile pop records. Especially from Impex Records.
FORMAT: 180 gram 33rpm vinyl
