Long Live Vinyl Issue 12 is now on sale as we celebrate the life of The Man In Black – Johnny Cash. On the 50th anniversary of Live At Folsom Prison, we take an in-depth look at the making of one of the greatest live albums in music history, plus we run the rule over the huge new Charly Records reissue programme of Cash’s legendary Sun Records albums – Johnny Cash has never sounded better.
The live theme runs throughout Issue 12, as we round up 40 essential live albums that every collector should own, and our Classic Album series turns the spotlight on The Band’s farewell performance – The Last Waltz.
In our packed features section, we sit down with Calexico and Tune-Yards to talk about their new albums, and bring you the inside story on the Ninja Tune label started by Coldcut’s Matt Black and Jonathan More. We meet the man behind The Rolling Stones’ tongue and lips logo, Craig Braun, The Trip heads to the South of France to go cratedigging in Marseille and we venture behind the scenes at three pressing plants meeting the ever-increasing demand for vinyl.
If all that’s not enough, Long Live Vinyl brings you the most comprehensive range of new album, reissue, turntable and accessory reviews, plus industry columnists, buyer’s guides and expert hi-fi advice.
