First four Madonna albums getting crystal clear vinyl reissues

Each one will be available on Nov 8th from Rhino

Rhino has announced the reissue of Madonna’s first four iconic albums – three studio and one soundtrack – on crystal clear vinyl on November 8th. Madonna, Like a Virgin, True Blue and Who’s That Girl: The Original Motion Picture Soundtrack will be available separately and as a bundle exclusively from the Rhino store.

Madonna’s seminal, self-titled 1983 album is certified five-times platinum and sold over ten million copies worldwide, captivating audiences with Top 10 hits including “Holiday”, “Lucky Star” and “Borderline.”

Madonna cemented her status as a cultural icon a year later with her follow-up release, Like a Virgin. Produced by Nile Rodgers, the record was her first to top the U.S. albums chart, its title track becoming her first No. 1 single. Certified diamond, Like a Virgin has sold over 21 million copies worldwide. The record features hits including “Dress You Up”, “Angel” and “Material Girl.”

In 1986, Madonna co-wrote and co-produced True Blue, which topped global album charts in 28 countries and the U.S. The critically acclaimed release has sold more than 25 million copies worldwide, making it one of the best-selling albums in history. All five of its singles reached the Billboard Top Five, including three No. 1’s – “Live To Tell,” “Papa Don’t Preach” and “Open Your Heart.”

Madonna next starred in the film Who’s That Girl and recorded four songs for its soundtrack. Released in 1987, Who’s That Girl: The Original Motion Picture Soundtrack has sold more than six million copies internationally thanks in part to its chart-topping title track and “Causing A Commotion.”

The news comes as Madonna is set to kick off the highly-anticipated Madame X Tour on September 17th. The trek will see the pop star play theaters throughout the world when it kicks off in New York City and stops in Los Angeles, London, Chicago and more.
