Notes

Released RSD BF 11.27.2020 US
Limited Edition 2,500
Label on front reads: "Introducing original grooves with Parallel Grooves, You Won't Know What You'll Hear Until The Needle Drops!"

Back : "Original Grooves showcases the vinyl cutting technology known as "parallel grooves," where grooves are cut side-by-side instead of one after another, allowing for a different aural experience depending on where the needle is dropped.

The first of this series comes from the legends Bille Holiday (Side A) and Nina Simone (Side B). The Blues Hall of Fame member and five-time Grammy nominee Bettye LaVette powerfully reinterprets both 'Strange Fruit' and 'I Hold No Grudge' on corresponding sides of this rare 12", "hidden" within the neighboring grooves."
