14 February 2019 (Toronto, ON) - On February 7, 2017, Rock and Roll Hall of Famers Journey proved their status as one of rock’s best live bands when they brought their landmark albums Escape (just in time for its 35th anniversary) and Frontiers to the legendary Budokan stage in Japan. Eagle Rock Entertainment/Universal Music Canada, the country’s leading music company, proudly presents this concert when Journey – Live In Japan 2017: Escape + Frontiers is released on DVD, Blu-ray, DVD+2CD and Blu-ray+2CD on March 29. Pre-order is available now HERE.

A triumphant evening of music, Journey presented songs from 1981’s Escape and 1983’s Frontiers. These albums produced eight Top 40 singles combined, have sold nearly 20 million copies worldwide, and cemented the San Francisco band’s music in the cultural zeitgeist.

Kicking off the 2-hour set with “Don’t Stop Believin’’’, Journey presented a set not just of their hits, but deep album cuts like Escape’s “Lay It Down” and Frontiers’ “Back Talk”, which haven’t been played live since the albums’ original touring cycles. The concert, presented with a minimal stage set, without big extravagant light shows or monitors, lets the music do the talking. The spectacular musicianship of Neal Schon (founder/guitarist), Jonathan Cain (keyboardist), Ross Valory (bassist), Steve Smith (drummer), and Arnel Pineda (lead vocals) shines on famed hits like “Open Arms”, “Who’s Crying Now”, “Separate Ways (Worlds Apart)” and “Faithfully”,

A fantastic representation of the band’s legacy, Live In Japan 2017: Escape + Frontiers showcases the enduring impact of Journey and these songs.

MUSIC LEGEND’S SHELVED FOLLOW-UP TO WHAT’S GOING ON MAKES 2LP VINYL & DIGITAL DEBUT IN CELEBRATION OF MARVIN GAYE’S 80TH BIRTHDAY ON APRIL 2

SaLaAM ReMi’S NEW MIX OF THE ALBUM TRACK “YOU’RE THE MAN” IS OUT TODAY


07 February 2019 (Toronto, ON) – In celebration of Marvin Gaye’s 80th birthday on April 2, Motown/Ume/Universal Music Canada, the country’s leading music company, will release his never-issued 1972 Tamla/Motown album, You’re The Man, in 2LP gatefold vinyl and digital editions on March 29. You’re The Man features all of Gaye’s solo and non-soundtrack recordings from 1972, with most of the album’s tracks making their vinyl release debuts. SaLaAM ReMi’s new mix of the album track “My Last Chance” is available now for streaming and for immediate download with album pre-order. Pre-order You’re The Man HERE and listen to “My Last Chance” HERE.

In 1972, Marvin Gaye was on top: or so it seemed. “What’s Going On”, “Mercy Mercy Me (The Ecology)”, and “Inner City Blues (Make Me Wanna Holler)”, the three singles from his universally acclaimed album What’s Going On, had each hit No. 1 on Billboard’s Hot Soul Singles chart (since renamed Hot R&B/Hip-Hop Songs) and Top 10 Pop the year before. His new single, “You’re The Man” – a percolating, sarcastic riff on political non-action issued as the U.S. presidential campaign was kicking off – reached No. 7 on Billboard’s Hot Soul Singles chart. He saw Motown schedule a You’re The Man album (catalog number Tamla 316). But when the lead single didn’t cross over Pop, stalling at No. 50, Marvin retreated. Ambivalent about recording, stubborn about moving to Los Angeles with Berry Gordy and Motown, Marvin by his actions proclaimed no more new Marvin Gaye music.

Or so it seemed.

In this singular and transitional year for the late music legend, Gaye recorded more than an album’s worth of music in Detroit and L.A. He produced himself, creating a suite of aching ballads; he worked with songwriters-becoming-producers Willie Hutch, then known mainly for the Jackson 5 smash “I’ll Be There” but soon to be lauded for his film scores to The Mack and Foxy Brown; and with Pam Sawyer and Gloria Jones whose “Piece of Clay” for Marvin decades later became a smash in the 1995 film Phenomenon. He cut two sought-after tracks with Freddie Perren and Fonce Mizell, half of the hit-making machine behind the Jackson 5; he got together with Hal Davis, who was preparing a Marvin Gaye-Diana Ross album, to cut another topical gem, “The World Is Rated X”. Marvin also funnelled his anger over the Vietnam War and his brother’s experiences there into a sequel of sorts to “What’s Going On”, the poetic holiday ballad, “I Want To Come Home For Christmas”. He even re-cut “You’re The Man” as an eerie funk jam, perhaps for the LP as a bookend to the single.

None of these tracks or any other on the LP, except the single, were issued at the time.

Three tracks from the album are newly mixed by SaLaAM ReMi, the songwriter and producer long associated with Nas, the Fugees, and Amy Winehouse: “My Last Chance”, “Symphony” and “I’d Give My Life For You”. Also included is the rare long LP version of Gaye’s cancelled 1972 Christmas single, plus an unreleased vault mix of its instrumental B-side. Over the years, songs from You’re The Man have been included on several CD releases but 15 of the album’s 17 tracks have not been released on vinyl until now.

You’re The Man’s 2LP vinyl edition includes new liner notes by Marvin Gaye biographer David Ritz. In his essay, Ritz delves into Gaye’s deeply personal internal conflict as a source of creative vigour and emotional burden as he experienced What’s Going On’s massive success and all that came with it. “Now I could do what I wanted,” Gaye told Ritz in an interview that first appeared in Divided Soul: The Life of Marvin Gaye. “For most people that would be a blessing. But for me the thought was heavy. They said I’d reached the top, and that scared me because Mother used to say, ‘First ripe, first rotten.’ When you’re at the top there’s nowhere to go but down. No, I needed to keep going up – raising my consciousness – or I’d fall back on my behind. When would the war stop? That’s what I wanted to know – the war inside my soul.”

Despite his inner turmoil, that same year Gaye recorded a duets album with Diana Ross and he accepted an offer to write what became his landmark Trouble Man film score. A year later, he released Let’s Get It On, the biggest hit of his career.

In addition to You’re The Man, Motown/Ume/Universal Music Canada will release a new expanded edition of Marvin Gaye’s 1965 album, A Tribute To The Great Nat King Cole, digitally on March 15. Honouring what would have been Cole’s 100th birthday, the album’s original mono mix makes its digital debut with the new edition, which also adds more than a dozen bonus tracks, including six alternate takes from the studio sessions.
