the new Vic Ruggiero album... THIS

Unison music approached vic with an idea to recording some of his favorites in lovely Hi-Fi sound. Unlike many of vic's other releases, which are known for their home-studio sound, these versions have been given the studio treatment.
NOT a greatest hits, but GREAT recordings of FAN FAVORITES.

So,11 of his best beautifully recorded despite his attempts to replace the microphone with a burrito. Dont miss it.

If you've loved Vic Ruggiero's songs, but wonder why he's gotta be so damn LO-FI, then this is the album for you. Finally Vic in HI-FI sound! Produced by the scientists at Unison Music...
