“With the exception of a few big name artists, the country genre is extremely underrepresented in the world of vinyl, with new country albums rarely being released on vinyl and older albums rarely getting the reissues they deserve. VMP’s spirit of exploring music together, coupled with this gap in the vinyl market, inspired us to launch VMP Country, ”said Andrew Winistorfer, Director of VMP Classics and Country, in a statement.
“VMP Country will give anyone on the spectrum of country fanaticism, from the staunch to the reluctant skeptics, a Record of the Month that will broaden your listening palette and give your record collection that much needed edge. Our members can expect VMP Country to arrive with the same devotion, attention to detail, and respect that we give to our other three tracks, and that we will deliver the most definitive versions of the albums we release each month. “
