Veteran music exec turned successful entrepreneur

Music Industry Veteran Marshall Blonstein knows a good music business venture in the same way he can instinctually tell if a music artist is destined for greatness.

Making his mark in the ‘70s at Ode Records with such top-selling artists as Carole King and Cheech and Chong, and eventually serving as President of Island Records, Blonstein switched over to the unique business of audiophile imprints in the mid-’80s.

Heart: Magazine SACD

Our friends at Audio Fidelity Records return with another Super Audio CD (SACD) of a classic rock album. This time, from 1977/78, it's Heart's Magazine, an album with more than a little history and controversy surrounding it's publication, thanks to the band's legal battles with their label.
