Two Indie Only Madonna reissues available in Holland January 12

Two exclusive ‘Indie Only’ releases of Like a Virgin on clear vinyl and Ray of Light on blue vinyl will be available at independent record stores. These issues that have already been available through Sainsbury’s, Fnac, HMV Japan and Amazon will now be available in Holland from January 12 too. We don’t know if a different sticker will come with it for the collectors among us.


2018 begint goed, want vanaf 12 januari kan je weer bij de onafhankelijke platenzaken terecht voor twee exclusieve Indie Only releases. Dit keer zullen twee albums van ‘queen of pop’ Madonna opnieuw worden uitgebracht.

Madonna’s tweede studioalbum ‘Like a Virgin‘ (1984), geproduceerd door Nile Rodgers, zal worden uitgebracht op transparant vinyl. Het album bevat onder andere Madonna’s eerste #1-hit in de VS ‘Like a Virgin’ en haar eerste #1-hit in de UK ‘Into The Groove’. Nu, 33 jaar later, zal dit album worden uitgebracht als prachtige clear vinyl-reissue.

Een wat recenter album van Madonna, ‘Ray of Light‘ (2003), zal opnieuw worden uitgebracht op blauw vinyl. Bij dit album was Madonna geïnspireerd door kabbala, een joodse geloofsstroming. Het album heeft dan ook dertien liedjes, het heilige getal in kabbala. De eerste single van het album was Frozen en haalde internationaal nummer 1 in de hitlijsten. Ook haar tweede single, de title track Ray of light, was een internationale nummer 1 hit.

Singer Niki Haris discusses her years with Madonna and her Aspen debut at the JAS Cafe

Niki Haris was at Madonna’s side through the queen of pop’s many transformations from the mid-1980s through the dawn of the millennium. She was onstage for the “Who’s That Girl” tour, in the film “Truth or Dare” and in the iconic “Vogue” music video, singing and dancing with Madonna up through the “Ray of Light” era.

She left to focus on motherhood and on a solo career that brings Haris to the JAS Cafe this week for her two-night, four-show Aspen debut with the James Horowitz Trio.

The lessons she learned at the top of the pop music world with Madonna were many.

“I learned discipline about creating your own vision and sticking to it,” Haris said in a recent phone interview. “And making sure that you’re living your own narrative, not judging yourself through somebody else’s eyes.”

 The woman she knows and performed with, Haris said, is not the shrewd, trend-chasing Madonna we’ve heard about.

“People talk about how calculating she is, but I saw so many times when she would not do that and go with her gut,” Haris said.

 

Fourteen years since she stopped recording and performing with Madonna, Haris is still learning from her.

“I learned so much from her in the beginning,” Haris said. “Good stuff that now I go, ‘Oh, this is what she meant by that!'”

The Immaculate Collection – a massive 58(!) different pressings added to the discography!

New in our discography is Madonna’s first ever greatest hits compilation: The Immaculate Collection.

This absolute massive seller is still a success today and was released by Rhino early 2017 on colored vinyl as part of the ‘Start Your Ear Off Right’. Originally planned to be titled ‘Ultra Madonna – The Immaculate Collection’, only 1 new song was scheduled to be included. Eventually ‘Who’s That Girl’ was scrapped in favour of ‘Rescue Me’ along ‘Justify My Love’ as the two brand new songs on the record. The ‘Ultra Madonna’ bit was also left out of the final product.

In our discography we have collected a massive total of 58(!) different pressings! All scanned and photographed with love and care by us from our own collection.

Not only cassettes, vinyl and CD’s but photographs of The Royal Box set, the mini-disc and the home video have been included!

Madonna on Live with Kelly and Ryan

On Friday (Dec. 8), Madonna stopped by Live With Kelly & Ryan for a casual interview about her kids, performing and everything in between. The singer joined the two hosts for a game of “Sketching With the Stars” and brought out her pal (and “silver fox”) Anderson Cooper to be her partner.

Madonna performs at Feijenoord Stadium on July 24 1990 in Rotterdam, Netherlands.

In a scene now cut from the YouTube video, Cooper delays the game by asking the singer when she’d be heading back out on tour, to which she replied: “Soon.” She explained further, “I gotta get my show together. 2017 was soccer mom in Portugal. 2018…I’m coming back, baby. I’m coming for you!”

Madonna, Current Soccer Mom, Plans To Return to Music Next Year

It appears that Lisbon‘s local soccer mom, otherwise known to the rest of the world as Madonna, has teased her return to the stage for next year. During a Friday morning appearance on Live with Kelly and Ryan, Madonna joined Anderson Cooper in a game called “Sketching with the Stars.” To stall the game, Cooper pressed, “I want to know, when are you going back on tour?” to which the pop icon replied, “Soon! 2017 was soccer mom in Portugal, 2018 I’m coming back, baby, and I’m coming for you!” During her appearance on Live, Madonna also revealed to Kelly Ripa and Ryan Seacrest that her pre-show ritual consists of a 20-minute warm-up, an oxygen treatment, and taping her ankles. “I’m an official soccer mom,” she told the daytime talk show’s hosts.

Madonna moved to Lisbon in August for her son David, whose flourishing soccer career had just begun to take off with Portuguese soccer club Benfica, which opens up a flood of questions. What kind of snacks do you think Soccer Mom Madonna brought for the team during practice sessions? Was she the type of mom to bring snacks at all? Did she form any Big Little Lies-level bonds with any of the other soccer moms? What will happen to the The Count of Monte Cristo-inspired mansion she reportedly purchased in Lisbon once she leaves for a world tour? These are the questions for which we still need answers.

The last time Madonna blessed the world with a tour was with 2015-2016’s Rebel Heart Tour, and fans eagerly await her big return for 2018. Next time she hits the stage, maybe she’ll bring a soccer ball or some team snacks with her.
