May 1977: Get Shown The Light (Grateful Dead)
Masaki Koike, art director
The Voyager Golden Record: 40th Anniversary Edition (Various Artists)
Lawrence Azerrad, Timothy Daly & David Pescovitz, art directors
For the first time in history, to celebrate Voyager’s 40th anniversary next year, you’ll be able to experience it for yourself the way it was meant to be played. The cloth-covered box with gold foil inlay will house three, heavyweight translucent gold vinyl LPs protected by poly-lined paper sleeves. The LPs will contain all of the same magnificent music, greetings, and sounds as contained on the original Voyager Golden Record, nearly two hours of audio. (Track list below.) Those records will slip into old style tip on, black ink and gold foil jackets. The audio will be complemented by a beautifully-designed hardbound book of captivating images from the original interstellar message, glorious photos of the planets returned to Earth from the Voyager probes, compelling essays, and ephemera from the project’s history.
Warfaring Strangers: Acid Nightmares
Double vinyl pressing packaged in characteristically fine style by the good folks at The Numero Group, housed in blacklight poster-style sleeve with 24-page booklet containing photos and extensive liner notes.
