VP Records to celebrate anniversary with New York show

This milestone event will also include the on-site creation, a ‘live’ painting by Japanese artist Murasaki.
Known for his colourful illustrations influenced by anime, comics, graffiti and Balinese paintings, Murasaki’s painting will be on a 10′ x 20′ canvas commemorating the anniversary event.
The artwork will serve as inspiration for the Murasaki-designed cover art for the upcoming VP Records compilation album, Strictly the Best Volume 60, slated for release November 22.
Earlier this year, VP Records debuted a multi-media exhibit chronicling its years in reggae music at the Sangster International Airport in Jamaica.
A condensed version of the exhibit will make its debut in the US at SummerStage.
Visual artifacts will educate concert attendees on the beginnings of the company as Randy’s Record Mart in Kingston, Jamaica, to the establishment of VP Records in Jamaica, New York, in 1979.
