Classic CANADIAN Artists Get The Digital Treatment As WARNER MUSIC CANADA Opens The Vaults

Warner Music Canada opens its vaults today with the first of a series of digital releases from classic Canadian artists ranging from Honeymoon Suite to Streetheart to Messenjah and the Rheostatics.  The label has gone back to the original master tapes of albums that have not been in circulation in over a decade in order to make them available through all Digital Service Providers.  A full list of titles is posted below.

Commenting on the announcement, Warner Music Canada President Steve Kane states: “In today’s increasingly active and robust digital marketplace, we wanted to undertake an aggressive campaign to make sure many of Canada’s important heritage artists are available in high digital quality. Warner Music Canada is proud of our contributions to the Canadian music scene over the past 45 years and these records are a part of that rich history.”

Arnold Lanni, founding member of Frozen Ghost, says: “I just got word that Warner Music is making my Frozen Ghost catalogue available digitally and I can’t tell you how happy that makes me feel! I’m happy for the thousands of fans who supported me and the Frozen Ghost project that will now be able to enjoy these songs on their favorite device.”

Gerry McGhee, frontman of Brighton Rock, says: “Seems a little like déjà vu to finally have Take A Deep Breath for the first time ever available in its true completed form with all the songs from the sessions. And to be working on a new album 24 years later, I guess what’s old is new again.”

More titles will be released from the Warner Music Canada vaults later in the year.
