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.
VOL. 1 : BILLIE HOLIDAY, NINA SIMONE AND BETTYE LAVETTE
The first Original Grooves edition includes 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."
It was available for sale for one day only at select local record stores as a part of Record Store Day on Black Friday 2020.
