Verve Label Group is proud to launch a new vinyl series, Original Grooves, available exclusively on Record Store Day. Original Grooves showcases the vinyl cutting technique known as ”parallel grooves”, where grooves are cut side-by-side instead of one after another, allowing for a different aural experience depending on where the needle is dropped. The first of this series comes from five-time Grammy nominee Bettye LaVette, with hidden gems from Verve legends Billie Holiday and Nina Simone. The Blues Hall of Fame legend deftly reinterprets the classics ”Strange Fruit” and ”I Hold No Grudge” on this 12” EP, with the original timeless versions ”hidden” on the neighboring grooves

01) I Hold No Grudge (Nina Simone) (2:18)
