HBO's latest drama Vinyl will take fans back to the 1970s world of rock and roll. Seen through the eyes of record label president, Richie Finestra played by Bobby Cannavale, the series will highlight his struggle to save the company by doing what is best, but without hurting anyone in the process.
The show is created by celebrated director/producer Martin Scorsese, Mick Jagger and Terence Winter. It will premiere on 14 February at 9pm ET on HBO. Apart from Cannavale, who will play the chief of the record label, the series will star Olivia Wilde, Juno Temple, Ray Romano, Andrew Dice Clay and Jagger's son, James, who will play the lead singer of a fictional band called the Nasty Bits.
The show will feature soundtracks by Otis Redding, Sturgill Simpson, David Johansen and other famed musicians. According to Billboard, Atlantic Records and Warner Bros Records will release Vinyl: Music From The HBO Original Series - Volume 1, which will be followed by weekly releases throughout the show's 10-episode run.
Volume 1 of the musical will feature 18 tracks that appear in the premiere episode, ranging from The Jimmy Castor Bunch's, It's Just Begun; Edgar Winter's Frankenstein, Ruth Brown's Mama He Treats Your Daughter Mean and Otis Redding's Mr. Pitiful.
