In 2010, three music industry veterans banded together to form Omnivore Recordings. The three, Cheryl Pawelski, Greg Allen, and Brad Rosenberger, had decades of experience between them, and some very impressive credentials to show for their careers. Their goal for the new label was to produce records that they themselves would like to own.
Omnivore got off to an auspicious start, to say the least. Their first release, for Record Store Day 2011, was the Test Pressing Edition of Big Star Third. The very limited edition sold out quickly, but fear not. The set was recently released again, this time on clear vinyl as opposed to the black vinyl of the Record Store Day release.
Since that time Omnivore has released more great music from the Motels, Leon Russell, and Richard Thompson, among others. Today the label returns to the Big Star family for its latest release, Alex Chilton, Free Again: The “1970 Sessions”. One lucky Popdose reader is going to win a copy of the exclusive LP & 7″ vinyl bundle. Read on to find out how to win.
