The stockings are hung, the carols are playing, the tree is trimmed, and we’re getting ready for a long winter’s nap! The Second Disc team will be taking our annual hiatus until January 2, 2020. When we’re back, we’ll be a few weeks away from our tenth anniversary, if you can believe it – not to mention just days away from releasing our first Second Disc Records title of the year, a special vinyl edition of Laura Nyro’s More Than a New Discovery in its rare mono mix. It will be followed in February by the standalone CD debut of Johnny Mathis’ Brazilian-flavored lost album The Island, produced by Sergio Mendes and featuring Dori Caymmi and Dionne Warwick. These mark our 40th and 41st releases, respectively, and we couldn’t be happier to share them with you.
On behalf of everyone at TSD HQ, we want to thank you for making our site a destination for fun, upbeat reissue reportage as well as impassioned archival music projects with our partners at Real Gone Music. We hope that you’ve made more than a few new discoveries perusing this site over the past twelve months. It’s no secret that a job you love is the best kind, and being able to fulfill our (and hopefully your) dreams of exploring great music from the past in the present is a responsibility we take seriously. We could not do it without you, our readers. Please accept our warmest wishes for a loving, healthy, and prosperous holiday season, a very merry Christmas, and a Happy New Year ahead.
See ya in 2020!
– Joe, Sam, Randy, Mike, and the TSD Family
