Northfield News covers our Vinyl Release

Dec 21, 2014

nfldnews-vinylKevin Krein of our hometown newspaper, the Northfield News, interviewed Doug and our producer/manager/guru Michael Morris about the upcoming vinyl release of “Heavy On My Mind.” Here are a few choice quotes from the article….

It was the response to the CD release of ‘Heavy on My Mind,’ and the first tour of the Pacific Northwest, when Morris felt that people cared about the record existing on vinyl. “Fans wanted to hear it that way, record stores wanted to sell it that way.” he said. “I felt comfortable making the choice of bringing all of this vinyl into the world. I think it is a record that is needed and will be appreciated.”

“We would have loved to put it out on vinyl the first time around,” Bratland said. “We all grew up listening to vinyl records, so we’ll always think of vinyl as the ‘real’ way to put out an album.”
