ARCHIVE DIGITAL CATALOGUE

In common with most record labels, Topic releases new albums both on CD and as digital downloads.

The TOPIC big digital archive project

Early in 2013, Topic Records will begin to publish digital booklets for each album available for digital download. Topic has always had the underlying philosophy of making traditional-based music as widely available as possible. Currently, digital delivery all too often seperates the audio recording from all artwork, documentation and sleeve-notes. The plan at Topic is to restore and include all of the information that originally accompanied the vinyl release and wherever possible add photographs and ephemera from our archive.

In January 2013, 84 archive albums will be available to download complete with new digital booklets. Each month throughout the year we intend to publish further ‘currently out of print’ albums from our archive and to make available digital booklets for all current releases, artist by artist, as well as new ‘themed’ digital collections.
