Nigel Lived CD/SACD Featured on The Second Disc

“Few artists have bridged the worlds of rock and theatre as successfully as Murray Head.  Singing the music of others, actor-singer Head scored two major hits on both sides of the Atlantic with 1973’s “Superstar” from Jesus Christ Superstar and 1984’s “One Night in Bangkok” from Chess.  Far lesser known, however, is his discography as a singer-songwriter.  Head imbued his own compositions with the same vibrant life as those famous songs by Andrew Lloyd Webber, Tim Rice, Bjorn Ulvaeus and Benny Andersson, and it’s no surprise that much of his own solo work shares with them a flair for the theatrical.  Last year, Intervention Records reissued Head’s 1972 solo debut Nigel Lived as a lavish 45 RPM 2-LP, “Artist Approved” edition pressed on 180-gram vinyl.  This 45th anniversary release breathed new life into a fascinating and all-but-lost concept album.  Now, Nigel Lived is available, too, on a hybrid SACD, playable on all CD players, with the label’s same hallmarks of quality.”
