Late last month, The Monkees Live Almanac provided exclusive details about the upcoming CD and vinyl release from 7a Records, Michael Nesmith at the BBC Paris Theatre. Earlier today, subscribers to the 7a Records email list received an update about the Nesmith project, complete with links to pre-order.
Those who looked closely at the email might have noticed a very small "Easter egg" at the bottom left of the message. If you right-click and save the image, here's what you'll see:
Thanks to Iain Lee, co-founder of 7a Records, The Monkees Live Almanac can confirm that Micky Dolenz & The Metropole Orchestra: Out of Nowhere will be issued in the US on November 24, 2017 (while UK fans will see it a week earlier) on both compact disc and as a limited edition 180 gram vinyl picture disc.
On April 15, 2017, Micky performed with the American Metropole Orchestra at Rice Auditorium in Salem, Oregon, as part of the Smith Fine Arts Series. The orchestra was led by conductor Keller Coker, and he was assisted by Wayne Avers (Monkees/Dolenz musical director and guitarist). The show was recorded by 7a in order to preserve this unique performance and commemorate it with a special live album release.
For all of the latest updates, be sure to subscribe to the 7a Records email list by visiting their website (scroll down to the bottom to submit your email address). A hearty thanks and congratulations to Iain and Glenn Gretlund at 7a for their ever-growing list of impressive, first-class releases.
