    Razor & Tie has announced the launch of Analog Spark, a new audiophile imprint focused on the reissue of classic and acclaimed albums on 180-gram vinyl and SACD.

    The newly formed imprint boasts an impressive list of initial releases, including The Sound of Music original soundtrack on vinyl and SACD in honor of the film's 50th anniversary. Future releases include albums from Kate Bush, Ben Folds Five, The Dave Brubeck Quartet and Laura Nyro.

    Analog Spark aims to establish itself as one of the prominent audiophile reissue labels in the country.

    The announcement was made by Razor & Tie Co-Owners Cliff Chenfeld and Craig Balsam. They comment, "We're very excited about the launch of Analog Spark and the reissue of this important historical music. These albums are deserving of the highest quality and we are confident our releases will become the go-to versions for both casual listeners and audiophiles alike."

    Analog Spark is the brainchild of musical curator Mark Piro, whose passion for audiophile reissues inspired his idea for the imprint. Piro remarks, "Our intention is to bring the listener as close as possible to the original recording by using the best sources, mastering engineers and pressing plants. We hope to build a lasting relationship and dialogue with our audience -- so that each time they purchase an Analog Spark release, they will have musical curation and quality that they can trust."
