MVD Entertainment Group Announces Plans for Vinyl

Friday, 19 September 2008

Just like Howie Mandel, it’s crazy how much vinyl is making a comeback. For years and years, vinyl was merely for the nostalgic, DJs and uber-collectors who needed that Fugazi limited-run 7-inch. Ironically, DJs have moved on to MP3s at a time when your average Joe is turning to vinyl. It’s all very confusing, but welcome at the same time.

The great thing for record companies and labels is the fact that people can’t log on to Solar Seek or their torrent site of choice and download an album onto vinyl. They are purchasing it because, most likely, they download the album for free somewhere and liked it enough to actually pay for it, rather than buy an album with two good songs and feel like they got ripped off. So it’s a win-win situation. Labels actually get some money for their products and audiophiles get something that’s worth their money.

Now MVD Entertainment Group is getting into the mix with plans to release vinyl, including new and previously unreleased tracks by Devo and the Dwarves, plus reissues by G.G. Allin, Wendy O. Williams and the Plasmatics, and more. MVD and Big Daddy have deep access to a great amount of quality content from some very collectible artists. CEO of MVD is all about this opportunity, stating, “We are very fortunate to be able to revisit this great catalog and bring these gems back to life in their originally intended format.”

You can check out a few of the releases here:

G.G. Allin – Freaks, Faggots, Drunks and Junkies
Plasmatics – Wendy O. Williams – Beyond The Valley Of 1984
Dwarves – Dwarves Limited 10 Inch
