About Long Live Vinyl

Issue 19 of Long Live Vinyl is now on sale. 50 years on from the release of Jimi Hendrix’s career masterpiece, Electric Ladyland, we speak to some of the key figures in the making of the album, flick through Jimi’s entire record collection and round up 20 essential Hendrix releases on vinyl that no true fan should be without. Elsewhere this issue, we get the inside track on Spiritualized‘s first new album in six years from Jason Pierce and meet Anna Calvi to hear how she made her boldest and most articulate record to date, the outstanding The Hunter. We also reflect on a trio of 50th anniversaries, as Wayne Kramer tells Long Live Vinyl about half a century in the MC5 and we take in-depth looks at Van Morrison’s Astral Weeks and The Kinks Are The Village Green Preservation Society – the latest in BMG’s Art Of The Album series. Echo & The Bunnymen guitarist Will Sergeant gives us a private tour of his record collection, The Trip heads to the East Midlands to visit the record shops of Nottingham, and we meet the team behind Eel Pie Records in Twickenham. If all that’s not enough, we bring you the most extensive range of new album, reissue, turntable and accessory reviews, plus expert buying advice, anywhere on the newsstand.
