In 1971, Monk released her first album, Key, on the Los Angeles-based imprint Increase Records. Before too long, the original issue went out of print. Key was subsequently reissued on LP (and then CD) by Mimi Johnson’s Lovely Music. For 2017’s Record Store Day, Tompkins Square has licensed the album from Lovely to make Key’s first new vinyl pressing in decades. Its first two tracks are still mind-blowers. The a cappella opener, Porch, showed how much variety Monk could wring from a single vocal hook-thanks to her many vocal production styles.
