This year Arnold’s has teamed up with Maker’s Mark, Neltner Small Batch Records, and Maria Carrelli for one of the coolest things Arnold’s has ever done.
Back in April, Maria Carrelli recorded a live album, Nobody’s Fool | Recorded Live at Arnold’s April 1 2023 and on Wednesday, November 22nd will be her official album release party for it!
Thanks to Maker’s Mark the first 150 people to show up at Arnold’s will get a free copy of the album pressed on super limited edition red vinyl. So just to recap, not only will you have the chance to see Maria Carrelli live at Arnold’s with no cover on Thanksgiving Eve, you will also get a FREE super limited edition vinyl album!
All that plus there will be specials on Maker’s Mark Cocktails and they will be serving Maker’s Mark infused entree specials as well.
These aren’t just regular albums. There is a ton of work that goes into them. Releasing these Thanksgiving Eve albums for free has been a passion project for Arnold’s owner Chris Breeden and celebrated graphic designer Keith Neltner for over 5 years now. They handle every aspect of this release from the vinyl pressing all the way to stuffing the records into the sleeves at the end. The project actually won multiple Cincinnati Addy awards over the years as well!
This year's album was printed at Otto Printing in Newport using a special UV printing process that has never been done on a record jacket as far as we know. The jackets are then foil stamped on the front and blind stamped on a letterpress on the back. The records are hand-pressed at Mus-i-col recording company in Columbus. The album was produced by Charles Alley, Photography by Lisa Sullivan, and Design by Keith Neltner.
Also, Maria is dropping a single from the live album called "Working for love" on all streaming platforms along with the vinyl album drop on Black Friday!
