TVD Radar: Fanny, Charity Ball and Fanny Hill on vinyl for the first time, in stores 9/9

VIA PRESS RELEASE | With the release of their debut self-titled album (previously reissued on CD and vinyl by Real Gone Music), Fanny made history as the first all-female rock band ever signed to a major label, but it was on their second album when the girls really settled into a groove. Highlighted by such tracks as “Cat Fever,” “Thinking of You,” and “Place in the Country,” Charity Ball was a quantum leap forward for the group, and displays a much more sure handed lyrical and musical approach than its predecessor.

Still, this Real Gone reissue marks the first time Charity Ball has been available on vinyl since its original 1971 release, and we’ve gotten it all dressed up for the ball, with the original album art featuring the cover photo by Candice Bergen and a lyric sheet. Ruby red vinyl pressing limited to 2000 copies!

Fanny had already stepped into some big shoes by being the first all-female rock band signed to a major label, but with the release of 1972’s Fanny Hill, they took things to a new level, recording at Abbey Road with producer Richard Perry and famed Beatles engineer Geoff Emerick (the album includes a Beatles homage with a cover of “Hey Bulldog”).

And the result was Fanny’s most varied and ambitious album, sporting a beautiful mix of ballads and rockers and a mature, socially conscious lyrical approach. Pressed in milky clear vinyl complete with original album jacket art and lyric sheet…first time on LP since its original release and limited to 2000 copies!
