Told through 8 rare African garage rock albums — curated by Now-Again Records, Strawberry Rain Music & VMP.
Zambia’s rock scene in the 1970s is one of the great unsung global music phenomena of the 20th century.””
...and the best stories are told in chapters. We're reinventing the box set experience, as we delve into the Zamrock scene, finding the last musicians left standing, researching, documenting and legitimately reissuing the uber-rare albums originally released in Zambia’s cities in the 1970s. While the box will ship with all eight albums inside, each will be housed in episode sleeves that can be opened at specific points in our 4-week journey.
All 8 albums in this VMP Anthology were lovingly remastered & restored from the original masters by Dave Cooley at Elysian Masters, and pressed on heavyweight 180 gram black vinyl, these albums have never sounded better than they do in this box set.
We created VMP Anthology for people who recognize that every album has a deep story to tell. By breaking up the albums into 4 episodes, we give you space to truly listen and absorb each individual recording, listen to the podcast and participate in a live AMA about those featured in each episode.
