NEW YORK – Each month, RUN OUT GROOVE allows fans to vote on the label’s next high-quality vinyl pressing, chosen from selections of unreleased material, reissues of out-of-print titles, or brand new collections compiled from the Warner Music vault.
Delaney & Bonnie fans rallied and voted Motel Shot Expanded to be the next official limited and numbered RUN OUT GROOVE title. Delaney & Bonnie’s 4th studio album, originally released on Atco Records in 1971 hasn’t seen a repress until now and includes a second LP of bonus acoustic outtakes that have never been issued on vinyl and were meant to create an impromptu late night jam session while on the road. Audio was sourced from the original analog master tapes and lacquers were cut at Sam Phillips Recording Service. This record will get the deluxe ROG treatment which includes rare cover art released only in France that will come in a beautiful Stoughton gatefold tip-on sleeve with audio on 180g black vinyl pressed at Record Industry.
Motel Shot Expanded is available to order exclusively via the RUN OUT GROOVE website untilOctober 4th and will be limited and numbered based on total orders taken at the end of the pre-order period. After the pre-order closes, the only way to purchase a copy will be via participating music retailers across the U.S., while supplies last.
