GIVEAWAY: Deluxe Anniversary Edition of Lenny Kravitz’s Mama Said
Lenny Kravitz is re-releasing his 1991 album Mama Said with a digitally remastered and expanded Deluxe Edition out on June 5 and thanks to the folks at EMI Music, we have two copies to give away to two of our readers! If you’re a fan of Lenny or want to hear “Cinna” rock out, keep reading to find out how to enter.
Among the Deluxe Edition’s previously unreleased recordings are several unfinished songs from the Mama Said album sessions, as well as home demos from late in the Let Love Rule era, which would later be finished for inclusion on Mama Said. Others, including “Riding On The Wings Of My Lord” and “Framed, Lying, Crying,” would not be released in any form – until now. Also included is the previously unreleased “It Ain’t Over Til It’s Over” remix 12” (sides A and B) and an unissued five-song live EP recorded in Rotterdam during the Mama Said tour. Official live and studio B-sides are also included, completing the commemorative reissue of this epic classic album.
Regarded as one of the preeminent rock musicians of our time, Lenny Kravitz has transcended genre, style, race and class into a 20-year musical career, one which revels in the influences of ’60s and ’70s soul, rock and funk. In that time, Kravitz has sold nearly 40 million albums worldwide and won four GRAMMY Awards. The artist’s multiple talents as a writer, producer and multi-instrumentalist have resonated through nine studio albums into a timeless catalog.
To enter, all you have to do is comment here and tell us what you loved best about Lenny’s performance as Cinna. Or, if you’re a huge Lenny fan, tell us which of his songs you think would have fit well on the soundtrack! For an extra entry, follow @mockingjaynet and tweet the following:
