New Album Releases Project 2020-2-23

By: |

NARP, the New Album Releases Project, got its start at NAR, New Album Releases, and back then – January 17,  2018, I had no idea that it would evolve into a project and be still going strong just about two years later. A proper backgrounder can be read here:

In light of NARP’s longevity and my personal/selfish (transparency) predilections, starting on January 4, 2020, NARP will be first published at Dagogo,, and subsequently, the post’s link will be shared as it always has in/on the NARP Facebook group.

The groupings of New Releases, Re-issues, Re-masters and Miscellany shall stay the same. Within Miscellany one might find all manner of live performances, as well as archival/historic recordings.

Note: entries in both bold and larger typeface particularly drew my attention this week.

The record labels and Gods are keeping me on my toes. Nothing like raising the urinals 5 inches, but damned close. Too close for comfort — mind you, much like the mailman nothing’s gonna keep me from my appointed NARP rounds. 🙂

I have BOLDED those selections which caught both my eye and ear this week.

The groupings of New Releases, Re-issues, Re-masters and Miscellany shall stay the same. Within Miscellany one might find all manner of live performances, as well as archival/historic recordings.

Remember to scroll down as Google Docs has some real funky ideas about page-breaks.

    Can you tell us more about the St. Dominic Preview reissue? What year was this reissue released. By which corporation? Who remastered from what source. I just looked on Amazon and couldn’t find anything. Thanks – Kevin
