John Coltrane and The Cars are the First Releases in Rhino’s High-Fidelity Vinyl Series

Each title is limited to 5,000 copies

Rhino Records, the label that specializes in high-quality reissues, is launching an exclusive premium vinyl series, Rhino High Fidelity (Rhino Hi-Fi). The first two Rhino High Fidelity albums are The Cars’ self-titled 1978 debut and Coltrane’s Sound (1964) by jazz giant John Coltrane. Each Rhino High Fidelity title is limited to 5,000 individually numbered copies.

To ensure consistent sonic excellence, Kevin Gray will cut lacquers for all Rhino Hi-Fi releases, and Optimal will press the 180-gram vinyl records. The releases boast high-quality glossy covers and “tip-on” jackets, an old-school aesthetic that evokes the golden age of vinyl.

The Cars release features a new interview with guitarist Elliot Easton about the gear used on the album, plus producer Roy Thomas Baker’s tracking notes for “Good Times Roll.”

Coltrane’s Sound includes notes and images from the master tapes along with an archival essay by legendary producer Tom Dowd, the recording engineer on this album, and hundreds of other classics on Atlantic Records.

The Rhino High Fidelity series will continue to release two classic albums quarterly, each with the same audio and packaging quality as the initial pair in strictly limited editions.
