Revisit The Early Days Of Lenny Kravitz Music Catalog With A New Set Of Double-Vinyl Releases

Lenny Kravitz has had a busy release month. First, on September 7th, he released his eleventh studio album "Raise Vibration," then on September 21st, Virgin/UMe re-issued four of his first five albums in 180-gram vinyl for the first time. The set includes his stellar sophomore album "Mama Said," his multi-platinum album "Are You Gonna Go My Way," the experimental "Circus" and the Grammy-winning album "5." 

All of these new releases are double-vinyl sets that included limited edition color variant discs, as well as the standard black vinyl. Lenny Kravitz debut album "Let Love Rule," will also get the 180-gram double-vinyl treatment, but will not be released until November 30th. Just in time to celebrate's the album's 30th anniversary in 2019.

After breaking onto the music scene with his debut album, Lenny Kravitz followed it up with "Mama Said," which featured the top five single "It Ain't Over Til Its Over." Just like his first album, Kravitz played most of the instruments himself and even invited his friend Slash to lend hand on the high-powered rock of "Always On The Run." This new double-vinyl version delivers a much cleaner, clearer sound, then what was presented on CD. The bass is strong on the song "Stand By My Woman" and the horns are sonically brilliant on "What Goes Around Comes Around." Even Sean Lennon lends a hand on "All I Every Wanted," before the album closes with the solo guitar poem "Butterfly." You will not be disappointed with this set as it includes all of the original artwork.
