Jackie Leven is celebrated as one of the world's most prolific and accomplished singer songwriters. His recordings encompassed everything from folk to Celtic soul, driving rock to lyrical ballads. He passed away 10 years ago this November but the legend of this uniquely talented artist grows every year as more and more people discover and celebrate his remarkable catalog of recordings.

2021 is a massive year for Jackie Leven, as there are 3 unique physical and digital releases, numerous new edits and tribute recordings, a new website and social media channels, best of and themed playlists and an extensive PR campaign backed up by extensive digital advertising.

The Mystery of Love (Is Greater Than the Mystery of Death) is arguably Leven's most celebrated album, originally released in 1994 on Cooking Vinyl. November will mark its first ever repress on beautiful double marbled vinyl, with new special gatefold packaging.

Jackie Leven's The Mystery of Love Is Greater Than the Mystery of Death is one of those special releases that intrigues and puzzles on first listen, while laying new circuitry in your subconscious that draws you inexorably back for more. There is absolutely no premeditated 'format' to relate this to, nor adequate words to convey this disc's mesmerizing content. On one level, it's all over the place, ranging from Celtic mysticism to Bacharach-David crooning, from atmospheric whispers to Big Country-ish epic statements, from traditional folk instrumentation to lush strings. But it still works as a whole, linked in a loosely thematic way by thoughtful poetry fragments intoned by collaborator Robert Bly (the Waterboys' Mike Scott also guests on the sessions). Leven's deep, reverb-laden vocals (he sang, in the early '80s with obscure new wave band Doll by Doll) reminds one in places of another brilliant, enigmatic British performer, Scott Walker.
