Art in America, 1st album was re-released by Renaissance Records on May 15 2008. Original release date was 1984. This album is now out-of-print, with Pavillion Records owner John Luonga stating new vinyl is forthcoming. In the meantime, I have place songs from the album on Youtube.
I am using Indie Music People as a depository for old and new AIA music, as well as a few of the Eddy Offord produced tracks and some "live-in concert" recordings. If you would like to hear any of the new music, please go the bands pages on Youtube or Soundcloud or visit us at artinamericamusic.
Art in America was the first rock band to feature a string harpist playing a full Lyon & Healy pedal string harp. AIA garnered considerable airplay and MTV video play when the album was released. AIA then toured in support of the album, headlining and opening for bands such as: U2, Split Enz, Roxy Music, Bill Bruford, Captain Beefheart, King Crimson and Steve Hackett.
A 1983 concert, originally recorded by King Biscuit Flower Hour, can be currently streamed for free at Wolfgang's Vault.com. The influential LP cover artwork painted by Ioannis, was featured in the book "1000 Record Covers" by Michael Ochs, published by Taschen.
