EMI plans vinyl releases of classic Capitol LPs

EMI has launched a retro-campaign – releasing eight hand-picked classic albums from the Capitol back catalogue on vinyl, while noting the back story that vinyl sales have increased by over 80 per cent in the US in the past year.
On August 19, Capitol/EMI will launch eight classic titles “From The Capitol Vaults,” all of which were previously out-of-print on vinyl. Six of the newly remastered, limited edition albums are presented on 180-gram LPs, while two albums initially released as double 10” 140-gram LPs will be reissued in their original configuration. All of the “From The Capitol Vaults” vinyl packages feature carefully replicated artwork and packaging true to their original single or gatefold jacket LP releases.
 Included in the “From The Capitol Vaults” vinyl launch are A Perfect Circle’s Mer de Noms, Coldplay’s Parachutes and A Rush Of Blood To The Head, Radiohead’s OK Computer, Kid A (two 10” 140-gram LPs), Amnesiac (two 10” 140-gram LPs), and Hail To The Thief, and  Steve Miller Band’s Greatest Hits 1974-78.
Additional “From The Capitol Vaults” vinyl titles will soon be announced.
