Paper Bag Vintage is excited to announce the upcoming reissue of Art Bergmann's seminal album, Remember Her Name, on May 12, 2017, pressed for the first time, and on silver vinyl!
“Art Bergmann” is an eponymous album by iconoclastic Canadian singer-songwriter Art Bergmann, originally released in 1991 on CD and cassette by Polygram.
The album included the charting singles "Faithlessly Yours", "If She Could Sing", and "Message from Paul”.
The 2017 re-release is entitled “Remember Her Name”, which is the lead song from the album, a tribute to Marianne Faithful. Art initially wanted to call the song “Marianne Faithful” but his label at the time were concerned about the legalities and made him change the name of the song, which became “Remember Her Name”. The new re-release was re-mastered by Noah Mintz at Lacquer Channel Mastering and includes the unreleased bonus track “Wide On/Hard Body” which was recorded during the original sessions. The re-release also contains new artwork composed of recent photos by long-time friend and photographer Sharon Steele, and photographer Lisa MacIntosh, who shot portraits of Art for her Great Hall series.
In his 40 plus years of making music, Art has fronted pioneering bands The K-tels, Young Canadians, Los Popularos, and Poisoned, and released Juno award-winning albums under his own name. Art’s 2016 album, “The Apostate,” was long listed for the Polaris Music Prize.
Paper Bag Vintage grew out of a desire to showcase and preserve great Canadian albums that have yet to be pressed on vinyl or haven’t been reissued in recent years. For more than 15 years Paper Bag Records has helped to cultivate international vinyl culture by producing limited edition vinyl for all Paper Bag Records releases. This emphasis on unique and striking physical albums will be extended to the Paper Bag Vintage imprint, giving fans the opportunity to finally own these special limited edition releases.
