Brief commentary of vinyl releases from Demon and Rune Grammofon…
Three collections for you from this UK outfit (www.demonmusicgroup.com) features T.Rex’s excellent Dandy in the Underworld (1977) includes a bonus LP of singles and demos on two white vinyl discs.
Leo Sayer’s The Gold Collection includes 7” mixes of The Show Must Go On, You Make Me Feel Like Dancing and Heart (Stop Beating in Time).
Another Gold release arrives from Chas & Dave as 13 tracks are squeezed into a single disc.
Two from contemporary jazz trumpet genius, Arve Henrikson includes The Height of the Reeds and Composograph (Rune Grammofon; www.runegrammofon.com).
The former offers ambience and sweeping trumpet licks.
The latter was a digital-only release but has been pressed on only 100 vinyl copies. These tone poems combine low key folkish. Both are beautifully rendered, sensitive, delicate and intimate.
