Rhino announces 2020 Start Your Ear Off Right releases | The Music Universe

Exclusive releases available throughout January

Rhino’s “Start Your Ear Off Right” campaign returns in 2020 with limited edition vinyl titles from some the most celebrated acts in music including Angelo Badalamenti, Bad Company, Deep Purple, Devo, MC5, Ramones, Sex Pistols, Stevie Nicks, The Replacements, Uncle Tupelo, Van Morrison and Warren Zevon. These releases will be available only at participating brick and mortar retail outlets. The three week campaign started on January 10th and wraps January 24th.

Rhino is also bringing back its highly sought-after wall calendar, which until last year’s “Start Your Ear Off Right” launch, was a music industry-only perk for record label employees, radio DJs, journalists, record store owners, and other insiders. For a limited time, anyone who purchases one the “Start Your Ear Off Right” releases at participating music retailers will receive a free copy the Rhino calendar, while supplies last.
