Lenny Kravitz's first five albums – 1989's Let Love Rule, 1991's Mama Said, 1993's Are You Gonna Go My Way, 1995's Circus, and 1998's 5 – will be honored with an extensive vinyl reissue campaign courtesy of Virgin/UMe, with each release appearing as a 180g 2LP-set. The reissues for Mama Said, Are You Gonna Go My Way, Circus, and 5 are all scheduled to drop in September 2018 while Let Love Rule will kick off its 30th anniversary in style in November. Four of the five double-LP reissues also feature exceptional non-album tracks, many of them appearing on vinyl for the very first time.
Each album in this series exhibits the ongoing evolution of Kravitz's considerable talents as a multifaceted singer, songwriter, producer, and guitar player. Let Love Rule established the template for Kravitz's exploratory nature as an artist and Mama Said continued the thread. The double-platinum Are You Gonna Go My Way climbed to No. 1 in several countries including the U.K. and sealed Kravitz's wide-ranging appeal, thanks to the abject ferocity of the title track and the international chart hit "Heaven Help." On its 25th anniversary, the original album will be available on commercial vinyl for the first time complete with eight bonus tracks which are making their debut on the format.
