Jennifer Warnes - Famous Blue Raincoat

180-gram vinyl

Remastered by Bernie Grundman

Exclusive 33-RPM vinyl issued for the first time in more than 30 years

In 1987 Jennifer Warnes and Roscoe Beck created an enduring interpretation of some of Leonard Cohen’s finest mid-period songs. The resulting album Famous Blue Raincoat has remained a touchstone of American pop. It’s a recording as beautiful as the songs incisive, painstakingly created by some of the finest musicians and engineers ever assembled. It has rightfully remained immensely popular for afficianados of sound and songcraft.

Newly remastered by Bernie Grundman on his all-tube cutting system using Warnes' personal analog mix-down tapes (from original digital recording tape), and personally supervised by Ms. Warnes, Famous Blue Raincoat is ready to be discovered by a new generation of vinyl enthusiasts seeking the purest musical alchemy, and vocal interpretation. Come see how far we’ll go for beauty.

I’ve heard about this pressing in audiophile media for years and was familiar with some of her famous duets work, so I decided to give it a try. The music is great and the production is very clean with great bass and instrument clarity with very little/almost no surface noise. Warnes voice is wonderful and I could listen to it all night!

An old favorite even better
