Rhino High Fidelity Unveils Next Two Titles
one rock, one jazz title strategy continues
Rhino High Fidelity today announced the next two releases in its series of limited to 5000 copies, $39.98 reissues, again coupling one rock and one jazz title, this time with Herbie Hancock's Crossings (1972) and The Doobie Brothers' The Captain And Me (1973).
Kevin Gray cut AAA lacquers directly from the original analog stereo master tapes. The 180g Optimal-pressed record are packaged in laminated Stoughton Press "Tip on" jackets and feature scans of original tape boxes as well as detailed liner notes.
Crossings, Hancock's tenth studio album, features Moog synthesizer innovator Patrick Gleason, who wrote the reissue's notes.
The Captain And Me, The Doobie Brothers' third album, earned double Platinum status and reached No. 7 on the Billboard 200. The Rhino High Fidelity set contains scans of the original master tape boxes and lacquer cutting notes for "Long Train Runnin’" and "Without You" as well as liner notes that include excerpts from "Long Train Runnin’: Our Story of The Doobie Brothers, a book documenting the album's production.
"Rhino High Fidelity will continue to tap into Warner Music’s extensive music catalog, bringing music enthusiasts and audiophiles superlative versions of landmark albums from diverse genres, including jazz, blues, rock, pop, and beyond. The series will introduce two classic albums quarterly, maintaining the same exceptional audio and packaging quality that has quickly defined Rhino High Fidelity"—says the press release.
