Stream Michael Angelo Nigro’s Psychedelic Nugget, ‘Checkout’
The extremely rare 1977 LP will be reissued on April 28
Anthology Recordings is reissuing one of the rarest psychedelic albums in music history next month, Michael Angelo Nigro’s 1977 treasure, Michael Angelo. Only 500 copies of the original album, which the Kansas City musician recorded off-hours at a small studio where he worked as a session player, were originally pressed, and surviving copies of the LP regularly come with a three-figure price tag. Below you can stream a cut from the fully authorized reissue, “Checkout,” a dreamy and melodic tune with plenty of smooth piano and Nigro’s lofty yet whimsical vocals. Pre-order the album — which is out April 28 — here.
