New Dionysus Releases – Alika Lyman Group LP and Skip Heller 78RPM!
Dionysus Records proudly announces our first new releases of 2016; The Alika Lyman Group “Leis of Jazz Vol 2” and Heller’s Hot Five “I Hate You” 10″ 78 RPM. Both releases are available in our online mail order cart (individual links below) or via retail via our distributor, ILD.
From Hawaii, The Alika Lyman Group delivers a heartfelt tribute to Alika’s Great Uncle, Arthur Lyman. This album spans the gamut of vintage combo jazz and classic Exotica, featuring original compositions and Hawaiian standards with instrumentation featuring vibes, stand-up bass, percussion and guitar!
ALG vibest, Marty Lush has strived to make the album jacket of Leis of Jazz Vol 2 as close to the original Leis of Jazz as possible including an exact repro of the Hi-Fi Records “Stereophonic Hi-Fi” sticker, and label that bears striking resemblance to the silver and black HIFI Records labels of the late ’50s! The first pressing is on purple orchard vinyl and the album comes with a free digital download!
