AN ERIC ANDERSON CELEBRATION
4/10/18

The lack of space on the stage at New York’s City Vineyard gave Eric Andersen little reason for pause Monday night. He just lined up his guest musicians in the audience at the record release concert at for his Sony Legacy/Real Gone compilation The Essential Eric Andersen, which covers music he recorded for Columbia, Arista, Warner Bros., Smithsonian Folkways and others between 1964 and 2010. Joining Anderson, who spent more than two hours covering his history from 1965’s “Dusty Box Car Wall” up to a new song he recently recorded, were, from left, guitarist Lenny Kaye, saxophonist Robert Aaron, Jayhawks member and Legacy exec John Jackson and guitarist Steve Addabbo. The well-traveled folk musician, who told tales about Rick Danko, Lord Byron and Lou Reed between affecting performances of “Blue River,” “Violets of Dawn” and “You Can’t Relive the Past,” is heading out on a 17-city tour that stops at McCabe’s in Santa Monica on 5/5.

 

ARE WE NOT MEN? NO, WE'RE A BOOK
3/21/18

Gerald V Casale and Mark Mothersbaugh have raided their archives for photos, artworks and memories to tell the story of DEVO from riots at Kent State University in 1970, through punk and new wave, and onto international superstardom.

DEVO: The Brand/DEVO: Unmasked is a 2-in-1 upside-down book. The Brand contains music press interviews from major British and U.S. publications; Unmasked is packed with rare and unseen photos of the band from the 1960s to the present day. Casale and Mothersbaugh contribute testimony and commentary.

Besides the classic version, there is a limited run Signature edition that contains the two books as separate volumes inside a hand-crafted, rubberized clamshell box, signed by the band and containing a vintage DEVO artwork. Preorders have begun here.

For old-timers looking for that perfect sipper to consume while reading the book, try one of Casale's fine pinots.

3/19/18

Forever Changes, Love’s beloved masterwork from 1968 that has only been fully appreciated and honored in the last 15 years, will recive  a 50th anniversary release from Rhino on 4/6.

The set includes the CD-debut of a remastered version made by its original co-producer and engineer Bruce Botnick, as well as the first-ever release of the mono version on CD. Also included are alternate mixes of the album, as well as a selection of rare and unreleased singles and studio outtakes. Botnick's stereo remaster of the original album also makes its vinyl debut on the LP included with this set. It was cut from high resolution digital audio by audio engineer Bernie Grundman. The DVD that accompanies the anniversary collection includes a 24/96 stereo mix of the album version of the original album remastered by Botnick. Also featured is "Your Mind and We Belong Together," a rare promotional video directed by Elektra producer Mark Abramson in 1968, and a 12 x 12 hardbound book. A pioneering psychedelic folk-rock album, Forever Changes was inducted into the Grammy Hall of Fame in 2008 and four years later added to the Library of Congress’ National Recording Registry. Love mastermind Arthur Lee was performing the album in its entirety on tour in the three years prior to his death in 2006.
