Spiral's "work of art" greets Record Store Day - April 17, 2010
Allison Crowe's newest album, "Spiral",
gets physical, physical, this month - with its CD release on April 17.
The album was released digitally on March 17, St. Patrick's Day.
There was an abundance of gold, silver and bronze in February, when Canada hosted the Olympics. Since then, printers have been sourcing a supply of the special metallic dyes needed for the album cover art of "Spiral".
This process happily enables Crowe's newest CD release to coincide with international Record Store Day. "Spiral" is now available at Fascinating Rhythm, in Nanaimo, B.C. - one of the five favourite record stores 'cross Canada for Stuart McLean, raconteur extraordinaire, host of CBC Radio's "The Vinyl Cafe." "Spiral" will soon be in Lobelia's Lair in Nanaimo, Lyle's Place in Victoria, Zulu Records in Vancouver, BC, and, on Canada's Atlantic coast, fred's records on Duckworth Street in St. John's, Newfoundland - and, in Corner Brook, Sharpe Music and Distinctions salon.
" 'Spiral' is a true work of art," writes Jeff Taylor, video-game programmer and multi-blogger from Canada. "The album is amazing, and will certainly be a top contender for album of the year."
"Spiral" is the seventh album/CD release from Allison Crowe. "This is an astonishingly gifted artist working in a class by herself," says Tom Mureika, writer for All Music Guide and other North American-based culture sites. ParisVoice, English language journal for folks who call home the city of Piaf and Charles Aznavour, says: "expressing emotion is where Allison Crowe excels. Whether covering other artists... or performing her own songs... each track becomes alive and palpable."
On April 17th, Spiral greets Record Store Day. That same day Allison Crowe flies to Europe to launch a series of concerts in Aachen, Paris, Frankfurt and Berlin.
