More details on forthcoming Claudine Longet "Sugar Me" LP release

I'm very happy to announce the release that we all waited for a long long time. The last Claudine's album "Sugar Me", previously released in Japan only as CD, will be pressed on vinyl. Lilith Records (who already released Claudine's "Colours" on LP/CD a few years ago) have finally licensed it from Barnaby Records and will release in June 15, 2009.

"Sugar Me" album have a long story. It should be a third album for Andy Williams' label Barnaby Records and was planned for release in 1974, however was shelved, because Claudine's popularity as a singer came to an end. Two of her Barnaby albums released in the beginning of 70s were a perfect examples of easy listening pop music, which have no good sales in the age of rock music.

A small independent label Century Records reissued two of her Barnaby albums in 1993, and few other tracks were discovered. The original master tapes with the album were lost, unfortunately, but missing tracks were replaced with some single tracks that previously didn't appear on any album and unfinished studio takes that were discovered in Barnaby archives.

Tracklist is the same to first CD version, however the vinyl release will have 2 bonus tracks from her 1971 single "Canta En Espanol", placed in the end of each side. These two tracks were newly mastered and sounds significantly better (and even a bit longer) than on previous release. Please note that there will be no CD version this time — only vinyl. First 1000 copies will be pressed on high quality transparent yellow virgin vinyl, so be quick to get your first pressing copy.

Gatefold LP cover will have original artwork, lyrics and rare pictures.
