The late Whitney Houston‘s 2LP deluxe vinyl package produced by Vinyl Me, Please includes heavyweight color vinyl and a premium gatefold jacket, housed in a foil-stamped slim case box. The 180-gram peaches and cream swirl color vinyl set features the original album alongside the first U.S. release of Whitney Dancin’ Special. This collection, released only in Japan in 1986, features extended remixes of “How Will I Know,” “You Give Good Love,” “Thinking About You,” “Someone For Me” and an instrumental version of “How Will I Know.” The anniversary edition also includes a 32-page hard cover photo and lyric book with new essays from Pat Houston, Narada Michael Walden, LaLa and others who collaborated with Whitney on the album. Tracks from Dancin’ Special will be released digitally worldwide for the first time to coincide with the release of the 2LP 12” vinyl product.
With Valentine’s Day 2020 marking the 35th anniversary of the release of Whitney Houston (February 14, 1985), a newly remastered 4K version of the “Greatest Love of All” music video will also be available today.
