Ayreon Reissuing First Two Albums On Vinyl For First Time


(TeamRock Radio) Ayreon will release their albums Final Experiment and Actual Fantasy: Revisited on vinyl for the first time on August 26. The launch of the 1995 debut album and the 1996 sequel follows the re-release of their entire catalogue after leader Arjen Lucassen hooked up with Mascot Label Group in April.

Last month the Dutch multi-instrumentalist also released the DVD The Theater Equation in which he took his 2004 album The Human Equation to the stage.

Lucassen says: "I couldn't have wished for a better start with Mascot Label Group and Music Theories Recordings. The people at Mascot flooded me with ideas and plans for the re-releases, which is a luxury, really.

"Take the artwork, for example. They offered to rework it, but wanted to show the original artwork as well. Their ideas were all really good.

"I'm sure the fans will appreciate this, which is one of my main goals when working on a re-release or a vinyl release. The worst thing to do is forget about quality and details, because people will turn away from you in no time." Read more here.
