First Time 33rpm 180g Vinyl Release In Three Decades!
Mastered by Bernie Grundman & Pressed at RTI!

In 1987 Jennifer Warnes and Roscoe Beck created an enduring interpretation of some of Leonard Cohen’s finest mid-period songs. The resulting album Famous Blue Raincoat has remained a touchstone of American pop. It’s a recording as beautiful as the songs incisive, painstakingly created by some of the finest musicians and engineers ever assembled. It has rightfully remained immensely popular for afficianados of sound and songcraft.
Impex Records has enjoyed a long and rich collaboration with Jennifer Warnes. Now Impex is proud to release, for the first time in more than 30 years, a fully authorized and approved 33 RPM, 180-gram vinyl LP of her groundbreaking classic.
Newly remastered by Bernie Grundman on his all-tube cutting system using Warnes’ personal analog mix-down tapes (from original digital recording tape), and personally supervised by Ms. Warnes, Famous Blue Raincoat is ready to be discovered by a new generation of vinyl enthusiasts seeking the purest musical alchemy, and vocal interpretation. Come see how far we’ll go for beauty.
“Originally released on LP in 1986 by Cypress Records, Famous Blue Raincoat was a sensitive tribute album of Leonard Cohen songs. Rather than hew to Cohen’s darker, weighty sensibilities, Jennifer Warnes reimagined the songs for her luminous voice and lifted the atmosphere with production gloss and light.” – Neil Gader, The Absolute Sound, 4.5/5 Music, 4.5/5 Sonics.
“Under the supervision of Warnes, Grundman has taken the original masters and breathed more warm analog life into each track than ever before. The dead-quiet surfaces of the superb 180-gram pressing permit more penetrating micro-dynamics and yield greater transparency and breadth between images.” – Neil Gader, The Absolute Sound, March 2016, Music 4.5/5, Sonics 4.5/5!
