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...

RWW: Vic Ruggiero, Jesse Wagner and Nico Leonard, finishing the album

Mixing begins for the RWW album. Vic Ruggiero (the Slackers), Jesse Wagner (Aggrolites) and Nico Leonard (Moon Invaders and Caroloregians) hosted a crowdfunding campaign on Rockethub for a recording and a series of live shows together in Europe beginning last July (2014). They completed the recording at 'Pum Pum Hotel studio' in Belgium in early August and will begin mixing soon. Release of the first "Reggae Workers of the World" is scheduled for early 2015.
