Record Store Day 2021, Drop 1 – Released 12th June
Blue and Red vinyl, not available on LP since original pressing in 1991.
Red Hot and Blue is the first in the series of compilation albums from the Red Hot Organization. It features contemporary pop performers reinterpreting the music of Cole Porter, one of the great American songwriters of the early 20th century. It was one of the first successful tribute albums and a landmark multimedia project, with contributions from filmmakers, artists and designers in addition to musicians. The money raised went to several groundbreaking AIDS organizations, notably ACT UP and Treatment Action Group (TAG), which were responsible for forcing the government and pharmaceutical companies to release the drugs that now allow people to live with HIV. This is the 30th Anniversary edition of the original album, released in 1990.
