Synesthesia - The First Five Years |MR-50|
Medical Records is celebrating it’s 5 year anniversary as well as 50th release!
For this 50th release (MR-050), Medical has chosen to release their first retrospective with a twist. This double LP features a hand-picked selection of tracks intended to highlight their past reissues on the first 3 sides. Featuring such standouts as Lou Champagne System, Tony Carey, Gay Cat Park, and many more, it is a very nice representative collection. The 4th side of the double LP is a unique collection of their new (contemporary) artists performing specially selected cover versions of tracks featured on their past reissues. Examples include the sultry “We R” performed by Roladex (originally by Chrisma on “Hibernation”) and “Click” performed by Kline Coma Xero (originally by Disco Volante). This collection will surely be a treat for the fans who have been following their evolution over time and will especially prove to be a staple in anyone’s collection who would like some of their reissued hits on one concise compilation. All reissue tracks and new tracks have received additional remastering and mastering (the new tracks) by Martin Bowes at the Cage Studios, UK. This collection will appeal to aforementioned lovers/collectors of rare new wave, private press synth, cosmic/italo disco, vinyl djs, and many more! This double LP is housed in a specially designed gatefold heavy sleeve featuring the Medical logo in a “color blindness test” on the front with the gatefold filled with thumbnails of all 50 past releases. Presented on high-quality 160gram colored vinyl. - from Medical site
