Next week on June 5th Lenny Kravitz (Cinna) will celebrate the 21st Anniversary of his 1991 album Mama Said with a Deluxe Edition re-release. In addition to the original line-up, 21 bonus tracks will be included, among them 15 previously unreleased recordings from Lenny’s personal archives.
From the press release:
By 1991, a good part of the world was already under the spell of Lenny Kravitz’s psychedelic brand of rock by way of his 1989 debut Let Love Rule. Now Kravitz was back with a groundbreaking album, Mama Said, a collection that took the listener on a musical journey filled with brutally honest recounts of love, failures, hope, spirituality and acceptance. It notably featured a resounding 7 singles, including several definitive Kravitz classics such as “Always On The Run” and “It Ain’t Over Til It’s Over.”
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.
