Label
Quinlan Road
Loreena McKennitt’s own Quinlan Road record label is set to rerelease her Nights from the Alhambra live album for the first time on clear double vinyl.

The original 2014 black vinyl run of 7,500 copies sold out and has long since been unavailable outside of the specialist collectors' market. The two-disc set was the first Loreena McKennitt live recording made available in the revived lp format.

This re-release marks the 15th anniversary of the original concert in September 2006 and will be available from October 29th 2021 via McKennitt's own online stores in the US, Canada and Europe.

Mastered by Bob Ludwig and re-mastered for vinyl by Jeff Wolpert, the reissue is pressed on 140g clear vinyl in a two lp set, packaged in a gatefold sleeve with a limited edition of just 1,000 copies globally. Filmed for worldwide television broadcast and originally released on DVD and CD in 2007, the Nights from the Alhambra performances were filmed in Granada, Spain at the Palacio de Carlos V in the Alhambra Palace historic monument over three nights; McKennitt is one of very few artists to have been granted the opportunity to perform in this breathtaking UNESCO World Heritage site.

The band that features on these recordings includes Nigel Eaton (Page & Plant) on hurdy gurdy, Irish piper Steffan Hannigan (Bjork, Sin E, Depeche Mode) and three Greek master musicians on lyra, oud and kanoun alongside Loreena long-standing Loreena collaborators such as Hugh Marsh, Caroline Lavelle and Brian Hughes.

Songs include long time fan favourites and career highlights drawn primarily from The Visit, the mask and mirror, The Book of Secrets and the then soon to be released An Ancient Muse.
