Superior Viaduct launches new label dedicated to reissues from the ’60s-’70s



With releases from Jackson C. Frank, Alice Coltrane, Herbie Hancock, Bridget St John, Herbie Hancock, The Impressions, and The Upsetters in the works.

Archival imprint Superior Viaduct is launching a new label called Antartica Starts Here focused on reissues.

“What’s different about ASH is it’s more like a label from the ’60s and ’70s, which is a period that we haven’t explored much on SV,” explains Steve Viaduct.

“While the main label will continue to focus on a wide range of experimental artists and scenes, ASH takes perhaps an unexpected turn: from classic singer-songwriters (Bridget St John) and post-bop jazz (Herbie Hancock) to soul/R&B (The Impressions) and reggae (The Kingstonians, The Uniques).”

Five albums will be reissued on 26th October – Jackson C. Frank’s sole LP, Simon Finn’s Pass The Distance, Curtis Mayfield’s Curtis/Live!, and The Upsetters’ Scratch The Upsetter Again and Double Seven – with more to be announced in the coming weeks.

Frank’s self-titled album was originally released in 1965, and has since become a cult classic.
