Eight Freddie Hubbard albums to be reissued on CD in the USA for the first time!
Nothing less than eight Freddie Hubbard albums from the 70s will be reissued on CD here in the USA, next June 9, by the Wounded Bird label, which licensed all titles from Sony Music. Six albums belong to the Columbia catalog ("Bundle of Joy," "High Energy," "Liquid Love," "Skagly," "The Love Connection" and "Windjammer"), while the two remaining discs were originally released on CTI ("Polar AC" and the compilation "The Baddest Hubbard").
All titles will be released on CD for the first time, except for "Polar AC" and "The Love Connection," previously available on this format only in the Japanese market.
