Listing Detail Tabs

Ten years after its original release, Hollie Smith's debut album LONG
PLAYER will be available on vinyl for the first time. To celebrate its
anniversary Warner Music NZ will be releasing the original 10 track album on a
2LP gatefold set on September 8. The set will also include a retrospect disc of
five songs from Hollie's career thus far including 'Bathe In The
River'.

Recorded at Trident Studios in Wellington, LONG PLAYER was co-produced by
Hollie and Jeremy Toy (Opensouls, She's So Rad, Leonard Charles) and mixed
and mastered by US based engineer Dave Cooley (Rodriguez, Isaac Hayes, J Dilla).
Upon release, the album debuted at #1 on the NZ Top 40 Chart and held its place
in the top ten for eleven weeks, going on to achieve double-platinum status.
LONG PLAYER followed on from Hollie's breakout moment with the Don McGlashan
penned 'Bathe In The River' from The Mt Raskil Preservation Society,
commissioned for Toa Fraser's film No.2 The track which captivated the
nation peaked at #2 on the chart and spent 37 weeks in the NZ Top 40.

LONG PLAYER is also noted for gaining the attention of Bruce Lundvall, the
President of Blue Note Records, who signed Hollie to the legendary American jazz
label after listening to the album one morning and being “…completely
overwhelmed by her original and soulful voice”.

Following the release of LONG PLAYER, Hollie went on to win 'Best Female
Solo Artist', 'Breakthrough Artist of the Year', 'Best Aotearoa Roots
Album' and 'Best Producer' (with Jeremy Toy) at the New Zealand Music
Awards in 2007.
