Release Date

1999’s Companion was a record of firsts for Patricia Barber and Premonition. It was the first recording of Barber’s legendary live show. It was also the first release under the Blue Note/Premonition joint imprint, the only such business arrangement in Blue Note’s storied history. And to top it off it was her first Stereophile Recording of the Month. Designed as a “companion” to Barber’s Grammy Award-winning 1998 effort, Modern Cool, the longtime audiophile favorite boasts all the texture of her acclaimed studio recordings and features several reinvented tracks, exceptional covers, and an ingenious original. This reissue of Companion was remastered for vinyl by Doug Sax from the original analog master mixes and features three sides cut at 33 1/3 rpm and one side at 45 rpm so that listeners get the full original release plus two bonus tracks. A stunning recording given new life by one of the great mastering engineers of our time!
