The monthly Ace Records newsletter, May 2020... a tale of spotifys, mp3s and reads
New Releases for: 24.04.2020
It's Ace new release day today. Due to lockdown we have no new physical releases, so to meet your listening requirements this month we're launching a series of Spotify playlists.
We're also sharing with you our Ace podcast series, lovingly presided over by journalist, record collector and broadcaster Pete Paphides. This occasional series features interviews with guests from many branches of the extended Ace family, detailing their own careers, the artists that have influenced their lives and the records that they love.
Also this month our Ace on the Road feature - amazing record-related stories from Ted Carroll, Alec Palao, Ady Croasdell and Trevor Churchill. It must be time to pull up a chair...
