Since he burst onto the scene in 1967, Anthony Newman has been a commanding and, at times, iconoclastic performer of the music of J.S. Bach. His extraordinary discography spans several decades and includes hundreds of recordings, many of them highly influential best-sellers. As Newman is one of the most prolific early music artists of the LP era (long-playing records), we selected a few of his albums with imaginative designs to display in the “vinyl tribute” below. As great as the records are, don’t miss the chance to hear him perform live on March 20 at St. Mark’s Lutheran Church in San Francisco when ABS celebrates Bach’s Birthday.
