Lee Ritenour To Be Celebrated With Limited Edition Vinyl LP Collection, Out April 22, 2016

New York, NY (Top40 Charts) On April 22, 2016, Concord Records will release The Vinyl LP Collection, a limited-edition, individually numbered box set celebrating a key period in the prolific solo career of renowned guitarist Lee Ritenour. The Collection contains five classic LPs by Ritenour: Earth Run (1986), Portrait (1987), Festival (1988), Color Rit (1989) and, on vinyl for the first time, the GRAMMY® Award-nominated Wes Bound (1993). These albums have each been remastered, pressed on audiophile-quality, 180-gram vinyl and restored with original artwork and liner notes. An accompanying 46-page booklet contains new liner notes by Ritenour plus never-before-seen photos and ephemera, all culled from an extensive scrapbook collection lovingly kept by the guitarist’s late father.

The Vinyl LP Collection presents a fertile period in a storied career, which began when Ritenour, at the age of 16, was hired as a session guitarist for the Mamas and the Papas, who dubbed him “Captain Fingers” for demonstrating incredible dexterity. Throughout the next decade, Ritenour became one of the most prolific session guitarists, working with the likes of Steely Dan, Pink Floyd, Aretha Franklin, Tony Bennett and Quincy Jones. Ritenour’s solo work has earned him a GRAMMY® Award and 19 GRAMMY® nominations. He has recorded more than 40 albums that have yielded 35 charting tracks, and he is widely recognized as one of the best guitarists of his generation.

“For us music lovers and folks who play music, vinyl is still the most amazing way to listen to and appreciate music,” proclaims Ritenour in his liner notes. “I’m thrilled that Concord Records and myself can present these five records remastered on 180-gram vinyl.” The Vinyl LP Collection includes such personnel as Academy Award-winning composer Dave Grusin, GRAMMY® Award-winning pianist Alan Broadbent, and GRAMMY® Award-winning composer David Foster, plus legendary saxophonist Kenny G and celebrated Brazilian artist Caetano Veloso.

The Vinyl LP Collection is available for preorder at:
