EDITION RECORDS: Catch up with our 2016 releases



2016 has been a great year for us. 16 releases in all! That's almost double what we have done in previous years. As we approach the year's end and the last (but not least) records for 2016, we thought we would remind you of the great recordings we've released this year. Thanks
