Set appears on vinyl for the first time
Daryl Hall and John Oates are releasing Live At The Troubadour for the first time ever on vinyl. The album, which will be gracing the shelves in 3 LP vinyl format on Black Friday, November 26th, is a collection of live, stripped-back classics, including hits such as “You Make My Dreams,” “Maneater,” “Sara Smile,” and many more. Alongside this, the album will also be released in 2 CD format and is available to stream digitally.
“Playing the Troubadour in LA has been a ‘rite of passage’ for live musicians for 64 years and Daryl and I played our first show there opening for the late great Harry Chapin in 1973,” Oates shares. “Over the years I always loved seeing shows and hanging out there with musicians and friends…returning to play again in 2008 was a full circle moment for me and the vibe was amazing.”
The set was initially released in CD and DVD format in 2008, however this is the first time the album will be available for fans in vinyl format. This release adds to Daryl Hall and John Oates’ extensive and highly successful discography, which is still resonating with existing and new fans across the globe.
“It’s always interesting to return to the scene of the crime,” Hall reflects.
Daryl Hall and John Oates remain to be a huge inspiration to some of the world’s most successful contemporary artists, from The xx to Kanye West, who have all sampled hits from the formidable duo. One of the most sampled artists today, their impact can be heard everywhere from boy band harmonies, to neo-soul to rap-rock fusion.
