Rubáiyát: Elektra’s 40th Anniversary

Seasons Greetings

I would like to take this opportunity to wish everyone a Happy and Safe Holiday Season.


Released in 1990 to commemorate the 40th anniversary of Elektra Records the label’s then present day artists covered the

songs from the historic catalogue of recordings of Elektra Records and its sister label Asylum Records.

Though an interesting concept the results are rather a mixed bag; which makes searching out the promotional only 4 cd set that includes

not only the commercially-released version of the album, but also a second version featuring each recording in its original incarnation

imperative for the well heeled collector.
