CJNU Nostalgia Radio Artist for April: FRANK SINATRA

by Tyler Vitt - Saturday, Apr 02, 2016 at 3:22pm

McNally Robinson is proud to announce a new partnership with Winnipeg's 93.7 CJNU Nostalgia Radio. Each month, we will feature and celebrate a different music legend, showcasing a new or relatively new album of their work.

We're starting with a bang by featuring Ol' Blue Eyes, Frank Sinatra, as our first artist. Specifically, we're excited about the Ultimate Sinatra collections, which were released in commemoration of the 100 year anniversary of Sinatra's birth.

Available as a single CD, two LP, or four CD deluxe set, Ultimate Sinatra includes the greatest songs from Sinatra's entire career. In the case of the four CD deluxe set, there are 100 songs for his 100 years.

Listen to CJNU Nostalgia Radio for samples of the albums, and swing by the bookstore to claim your discs or vinyl.

Record Store Day 2016

by Tyler Vitt - Thursday, Mar 10, 2016 at 4:44pm

This year, Record Store Day falls on Saturday, April 16th.

And yes, McNally Robinson will be taking part in the festivities. Just like in years past, we will be featuring dozens of special LPs that are available exclusively at independent RSD retailers like us and only on RSD.

Stock will be limited for most titles, so we suggest you join us early. Depending on the crowd, we may limit your selection just so that others can have a chance to pick up some unique albums.

If you're curious about which titles we're expecting, feel free to give us a call and ask for our Music staff (Winnipeg 204-475-0483, Saskatoon 306-955-3599). We'll point out that we don't always receive every RSD album that we expect, but we can let you know what we've ordered.

Our Sounds for March & April 2016

by Tyler Vitt - Tuesday, Mar 01, 2016 at 10:58am

Lucinda Williams. The Ghosts of Highway 20. 2 CD set $18.99. 2 LP set $35.99. Interstate 20, which cuts a 1500-mile swath from South Carolina to Texas, also cuts deep into the spirit of those who have spent their lives traversing it. Williams, a longtime traveller up and down Highway 20 and whose 35-plus-year career has its foundations in blues and honky-tonk, gospel and soul, folk and rock, brings the stories of these people to life in this deeply felt, deeply affecting 14-song collection that cleaves close to Wiliams' past and present. (Sony. February)

Matt Andersen. Honest Man. CD $15.99. LP $20.99. A powerhouse perfomer with a rich, soul-filled voice, the New Brunswick bluesman has built a formidable following the old fashioned way, touring world wide and spreading his reputation through word of mouth. Along the way he managed to net three Maple Blues Awards and a JUNO Award nomination for Weightless (2014). Written around drum beats that takes the music to a new level, the ten songs that make up Andersen's eighth full-length album explore both the political and the personal. (True North. March)

Daniel Hope. My Tribute to Yehudi Menuhin. CD $14.99. April 22, 2016 would have been the 100th birthday of violin legend Yehudi Menuhin. In celebration of what would have been Menuhin's centenary, Daniel Hope, internationally renowned violinist in his own right, dedicates a complete album to his former mentor and close friend. The album is a beautiful selection of works, mostly commissioned by/for Yehudi Menuhin, including Takemitsu's Nostalghia, Reich's Duet for 2 Violins and String Orchestra and Henze's Adagio. (Deutsche Grammophon. February)

Bill Frisell. When You Wish Upon a Star. CD $15.99. Both deeply reverent to his source music and profoundly personal in his approach, guitarist Bill Frisell draws upon the classic film and television music we have heard on screen and how it shapes and informs our emotional relationships to what we see. Frisell, whose own music has been featured in major motion pictures like Finding Forrester and The Million Dollar Hotel performs with singer Petra Haden, violinist Eyvind Kang, bassist Thomas Morgan, and drummer Rudy Royston in re-imagining these time-honoured gems. (Sony. March)
