Michael Marra catalogue goes Digital

The late Dundee-born singer, songwriter, actor and artist Michael Marra’s entire recorded back-catalogue is being made available digitally for the first time from February 3 through Amazon and other outlets. His albums include his first release, The Midas Touch, the experience of recording which made him concentrate on the idiosyncratic style that produced songs such as Hermless, Happed in Mist and All Will be Well and others that documented real and imagined visits by personalities as diverse as General Ulysses S Grant, artist Frida Kahlo and Dr John to Tayside locations. Marra’s producer, Allan McGlone, is making a previously unreleased concert recording from the Bonar Hall in Dundee in 2000 and an unreleased collection of studio recordings from the 1980s available as part of the catalogue, which also includes the three EPs Marra recorded at An Tobar on Mull and his magnum opus, Posted Sober.
