Atlantic celebrates 75th anniversary with year-long vinyl and remix campaign

As part of Atlantic Records’ 75th anniversary celebration, the label – in conjunction with Rhino Entertainment – has launched an extensive year-long vinyl series featuring 90 releases spanning the entire history of the company, from its earliest days until the present. 

The series encompasses acclaimed albums across a wide range of genres, including special editions and many that have never been on vinyl. The campaign has been curated by Atlantic Records’ chairman and CEO Craig Kallman, who – in addition to his role as the label’s chief executive – is one of the world’s foremost audiophiles, with a personal vinyl collection now numbering over two million LPs.

With most titles pressed in clear vinyl, each month’s Atlantic 75 collection featured throughout the year will reflect the label’s diverse history. 

As part of the ongoing series, Atlantic has also announced the forthcoming release of Led Zeppelin’s untitled fourth album, commonly referred to as Led Zeppelin IV. Produced by Jimmy Page, the album will be pressed on crystal-clear, 180g vinyl. The collection will also feature albums from artists including Jason Mraz, Christina Perri and Sia, as well as seasonal releases from Booker T And The MG’s. 

“Our 75th anniversary has given us an incredible opportunity to revisit the amazing range and depth of the music that Atlantic has released across the decades,” said Craig Kallman. “These albums are not only an extraordinary musical journey through the years, but a cultural one as well, reflecting a series of seismic social shifts. As an admitted vinyl junkie, I’m honoured and thrilled to join with our colleagues at Rhino to give all this brilliant music the royal LP treatment. It’s been a true labour of love, and the perfect celebration of this landmark anniversary.”
