Jerry Garcia & Howard Wales - Hooteroll? CDJerry Garcia & Howard Wales - Hooteroll? CD - Keyboardist Howard Wales and guitarist Jerry Garcia teamed up often in the early 1970's, holding jam sessions at nearby clubs and recording this largely ignored studio album. The music on Hooteroll? is a natural extension of the sublime jazz-fusion that had begun to change jazz music. This is psychedelic, interstellar rock with healthy doses of funk, jazz, and 70's style soul. Features John Kahn on bass, Bill Vitt on drums, and Martin Fierro on sax/flute. A classic California lineup and an album that you won't believe you missed!

* A classic, this record is Jerry Garcia's first non-Grateful Dead work!
* Special digipak reissue never available before in America features stunning art by Mati Klarwein.
* Hooteroll? shows early-era Dead influence, yet incorporates the years of experience accrued by Garcia. Some very unique music is created in this session, and lets the listener see how Garcia could branch out to do something different--more experimental, more off-the-cuff, and more spontaneous.
* Using a seven-piece band and implementing organs, sax, trumpet, guitars, bass, and drums, kaleidoscopic musical waves and journeys combine to make a very diverse and jam-filled record.


Dickey Betts & Great Southern - 30 Years of Southern Rock (2 CDs)Dickey Betts & Great Southern - 30 Years of Southern Rock (2 CDs) - First time on CD for these live recordings from 1978 and 2008. Dickey Betts and Great Southern were the third highlight at the Rockpalast Festival on March 4th/5th, 1978. On those evenings they played for the first time in Europe in front of an enthusiastic audience at the Gruga-Halle in Essen/Germany and millions of viewers on television. Dickey Betts is not an unknown to those who are familiar with American Rock music. He was one of the original members of the Allman Brothers Band and formed his own band Great Southern in 1976. Nowadays, Dickey Betts and Great Southern are considered to be one of the most important and influential Southern Rock bands of all time. 2009.


Jackie Greene - Till the Light Comes CDJackie Greene - Till the Light Comes CD - Back from his most extensive tour to date, hitting up all the festivals, Jackie Greene delivers another gem proving his title 'Prince of Americana' more relevant than ever.

Jacob Fred Jazz Odyssey - Stay Gold CDJacob Fred Jazz Odyssey - Stay Gold CD - Jacob Fred Jazz Odyssey, the Tulsa, Oklahoma institution founded by pianist Brian Haas returns with a new full length album, Stay Gold. The effort further refines JFJO's singular vision that s been dubbed 'Red Dirt Jazz,' sounding equal parts earthy and nimble, pastoral and sweeping, elegant and free. The quartet taps into their birthright, drawing upon 'The Tulsa Sound' born of hometown heroes like JJ Cale, Bob Wills and Leon Russell, while growing these roots from a jazz foundation that's built firmly upon the influence of giants such as Duke Ellington and Thelonious Monk. JFJO recorded the album at acclaimed engineer/musician David Teegarden's Natura Digital Recording Studios just outside of Tulsa. The eight-track effort captures the band's strongest songwriting and most compelling improvisations to date. The second release from the current incarnation of the quartet, Stay Gold proves undoubtedly that pianist Haas has found the perfect foil in lap steel guitarist Chris Combs. Set to play over 150 shows in 2010 to an ever-growing worldwide fan-base, Jacob Fred Jazz Odyssey continue to evolve into one of the 21st century's most distinct jazz voices.


Ozric Tentacles - Erpland CD/DVDOzric Tentacles - Erpland CD/DVD - ERPLAND (originally a double LP) is the Ozric Tentacles' first CD proper and sets the tone for the records that follow. Let the wizard lead you throughout these uncharted lands, across the rainbow-splashed peninsula on the cover, as you bask in the radioactive glow of "Eternal Wheel," tumbling to and fro on a river of bubbling sequencers and cybertronic guitars. Prepare yourself for the mental journeys across inner space and "Mysticum Arabicola," where tablas pound out the future sounds of India, while above, our alien ancestors descend to reclaim the planet that was once their own, their starship's lights shimmering and boosters blasting the approaching earth into obsidian. This is music of colors, energy, and vitality; impeccably produced and extremely well executed. It would be a high crime to not enjoy the galloping sequencers, outerreach electronics, coruscating guitar lines, and enthralling percussion of the Ozrics on anything but the best that high fidelity has to offer.

The set also contains a DVD with the video of their gig at the Fridge Brixton. This is the first time on DVD - it was released many years ago on VHS. Only 3000 sets for the world....

Perpetual Groove - Honey Cuts CD Perpetual Groove - Honey Cuts EP CD - Honey Cuts presents three out takes from the Heal sessions - Space Paranoids, Cairo, and The Noise. While all three tracks were in contention to be featured on Heal, the band ultimately decided the tracks were better left off the release as they did not "fit" the overall timeless quality of the compositions contained within Heal. All three tracks feature a subtle infusion of the live show, including loops and effects that were absent from the songs released on the full album. The title of the EP is taken from the song "Honey Cuts" which is actually featured on Heal.


Sim Redmond Band - Open the Door CDSim Redmond Band - Open the Door CD - Since their inception over ten years ago, the Sim Redmond Band has been steadily on the rise, forging new ground in roots music. Traveling around the globe, playing with the likes of moe., the Neville Brothers, the Wailers, Jimmy Cliff, and Habib Koite, in some of the most beautiful venues in the U.S. and Japan, the world has taken notice. SRB's unique blend of roots-rock, Afro-Carribean, and reggae music continues to spread like wild fire. They are based in Ithaca, NY but their magnetic pole is Africa, particularly the sounds eminating from West & South Africa. This magnetic pole has served as a pivot for the Sim Redmond Band to spring into straight rock grooves and pumping reggae. The vocal teamwork of Sim Redmond, Jen Middaugh, and Nate Silas Richardson creates a male/female chemistry that is rare and beautiful. Lyrically, they explore dreams, truth, and matters of the heart. The music of the Sim Redmond Band has reached the hearts of people all around the world. They have toured extensively, selling over 10 thousand records in the U.S and over to 20,000 in Japan, where SRB has toured numerous times.

Eric Lindell - Between Motion & Rest CD Eric Lindell - Between Motion and Rest CD or LP+CD - You want some mellow-yet-swinging, good time southern rock? Look no further than BODEGA, which suggests a marriage of Elvin Bishop and the Allman Brothers, spiced by gentle horn jabs and boasting the most sensual guitar tone you'll hear all year. - Blurt Magazine

Making his latest record, Between Motion and Rest, was so much fun for Eric, as he has been friends with this group of musicians for many years. The title of this album, Between Motion and Rest was inspired and based off the original song LUCKY LUCKY, by Peter Joseph Burtt. Peter is a very good friend of Eric's, and one of his favorite musicians and songwriters. The song really resonated with Eric, and they couldn't wait to record it! This track (and the rest of the record) features another one of his good friends and life long musical companions, Jake Brown. They grew up playing music together, along with Adam Theis and Peter Smith, two of the other players on this session. This album also features tracks with some of Eric's other long time friends Ivan Neville, Chris Arenas and Thomas Johnson from New Orleans, and Jacksonville's finest, Joe Cohen.

Dickey Betts - Altanta's Burning Down/Great Southern CDDickey Betts - Altanta's Burning Down/Great Southern CD - Digitally remastered two-fer containing a pair of albums from the Southern Rock legend on one disc: Dickey Betts & Great Southern (1977) and Atlanta's Burning Down (1978). With the revived interest is all things "Southern" and the fast expanding "Jam Band" scene this timely re-issue illustrates what a superb guitarist Betts is. He has just announced that he has retired from the road after all these years and these two albums remain fine testament to the mans outstanding guitar skills. 15 tracks.



moe. - Smash Hits Vol 1 CDmoe. - Smash Hits Vol 1 CD - This new moe. album features: Spine of a Dog, Yodelittle, Saint Augustine, Mexico, Rebubula, Buster, Captain America, Okayalright, Tailspin, and first ever studio recording of Seat of my Pants. From ideas brewed in Buffalo basements and lyrics conjured up along miles of the lower 48, to sounds bouncing off trees from a stage in the Sierra Nevada, these 10 songs dot the map of the 20 years of music in the making for moe. With seven of the tracks recently re-recorded, this anthology will round out the studio collections of many seasoned fans, and is a good introduction, as Chuck Garvey puts it, "for first-time listeners or people who want their first taste of the breadth of our catalog."

Coming Soon:

June 8 - Warren Haynes presents the Benefit Concert Vol 3 (2 CDs)

June 22 - Jacob Fred Jazz Odyssey - Stay Gold CD

Last Week:

Keller & the Keels - Thief Cd Keller Williams & the Keels - Thief CD - Keller Williams' latest studio release, 'thief', serves as a follow-up to his highly acclaimed 2006 release of anything-but-traditional bluegrass songs, 'grass'. Teaming up once again with his good friends Larry and Jenny Keel (on guitar and bass, respectively), Keller gives the bluegrass treatment to 13 unexpected rock, pop and folk songs. From Ryan Adams and Amy Winehouse to Presidents of the United States of America and the Butthole Surfers, Keller & the Keels tread on hallowed territory. But with 'thief', they aren't stealing from their musical heroes, rather paying their respects and breathing new life into old classics.


Widespread Panic - Dirty Side Down CDWidespread Panic - Dirty Side Down CD - Dirty Side Down, the 11th studio album from Widespread Panic, is comprised of 12 songs that incorporate Panic's unique blend of rock, jazz and blues inspired textures into songs flowing with melody, rhythm and emotion. After 24 years, Widespread Panic remain one of America s best live bands, and most successful touring acts. Aside from their legendary live shows, they continue to raise the bar in their genre through their songwriting, and Dirty Side Down is a prime example. Band members John Bell (vocals/guitar), John Hermann (keyboards/vocals), Jimmy Herring (lead guitar), Todd Nance (drums/vocals), Domingo Ortiz (percussion) and Dave Schools (bass/vocals) combine their efforts by writing, or co-writing, 10 of the album s 12 tracks. Songs, such as the dark, multi-layered opener Saint Ex , the boogie blues of Jaded Tourist or the laid back Southern nature of When You Coming Home showcase Widespread Panic s dynamic range as songwriters and musicians.

iLa Mawana - Soldiers of Sound CD iLa Mawana - Soldiers of Sound CD - Boston-based iLa Mawana presents their first studio album! Developing a strong reputation among fans for their tight pocket reggae grooves, iLa Mawana has put together a cohesive group of songs that capture their energy with captivating new melodies.

"...Boston-based iLa Mawana is solidly reggae, but by mixing dub, roots and Afro-beat, they add dimension to their sound, taking them from quintessential to alluring." - Performer Magazine

"Boston's iLa Mawana have a vibrant Jamaican flavor that uses a familiar template, proudly following in the footsteps of reggae legends. Adding a twist to their traditional leanings, the nine-piece posse fuse their style with strains of dub and ska, then alter the vibe further with lyrics that fit more naturally with today's sensibilities." - Music Connection Magazine

Sol Driven Train - Believe CDSol Driven Train - Believe CD - At shows, the band members bounce to the pulse of the music along with the crowd. Stylistically the band "seamlessly mixes Allmanesque Southern rock, languid world-beat, swampy funk and downright catchy melodies as they swap lead singers and instruments. A punchy horn section adds an extra dimension of sweaty soul to the genre-blurring jam party" (Atlanta Creative Loafing, 11/21/06). All that sweat is paying off for Sol Driven Train. With their honest songwriting and energetic live performances, they are attracting fans devoted to witnessing their musical rise. Believe is a snapshot of the ever changing life and sound of Sol Driven Train. The album spans the gap from comedy to tragedy with a track sure to capture the imagination of any listener.

Rev Payton's Big Damn Band - The Wages CDRev Peyton's Big Damn Band - The Wages CD - "I grew up in the country, and rural life and rural culture has shaped me and my music," says Reverend Peyton, who really is a Kentucky Colonel, just like Elvis Presley, Roy Rogers and Tiger Woods. "I have been playing music since I was a little kid. I am pretty sure we are on to something now." That combination of authenticity and originality is evident throughout the Big Damn Band's "The Wages," driven by the trio's big damn vocals and melodies, gutbucket guitar playing, and foot-stomping rhythms, all in service of songs that are honest and moving, devoid of irony or artifice.


Skerik's Syncopated Taint Septet - Live At The Triple Door CDSkerik's Syncopated Taint Septet - Live At The Triple Door CD - Skerik's Syncopated Taint Septet follows up the release of their classic 2007 studio album Husky with the perfect companion piece, Live At The Triple Door. Multi-tracked at the venerable Seattle jazz venue, the band winds their way through seven torrid performances, including 'Summer Pudding,' 'Taming The Shrew' and 'The Third Rail.' Adding distinguished flourishes to the Syncopated Taint Septet on this evening is both a string section and the acclaimed Seattle vocalist Om Johari, who contributes two hair raising performances: a rendition of Nina Simone's 'Mississippi Goddamn' and a re-working of Sarah Vaughn's 'The Mystery Of Man,' which was adapted from the poetry of Pope John Paul II. The final shine on Live At The Triple Door comes courtesy of arranger Eyvind Kang who adds string overdubs to enhance the pre-existing live strings.

Long a staple of the Northwest music scene and a revered cult figure around the country, tenor saxophonist Skerik adds yet another jewel to a steadily growing discography that includes acclaimed works by his other bands ranging from Garage A Trois to Critters Buggin to The Dead Kenny G's.
