Performing at George Jones' 80th birthday was a thrill but also just another day's work for Blackberry Smoke, the Atlanta-based quintet of "rock outlaws" known for raucous country riffs and sprawling live shows. In addition to their passionate fan base, the band has garnered praise, supporting tour slots and guest appearances from the likes of Jones, ZZ Top, The Marshall Tucker Band and Zac Brown Band, among many others.

Their new album The Whippoorwill, marks the band's first release on Zac Brown's label Southern Ground Artists, and includes 13 new songs that reflect these diverse collaborations and years of honing their craft on the road. From the defiant, funky "Everybody Knows She's Mine," to the sweaty rocker "Shakin' Hands with the Holy Ghost," and the riff-driven "Crimson Moon," the whole album is stamped with rich Southern imagery; frontman Charlie Starr's instantly recognizable grit; dense arrangements of organ, pedal steel, and guitar; and tightly-stacked vocal harmonies.

The Whippoorwill was recorded across sessions from Asheville to Atlanta to Fayetteville and produced by the band, along with Clay Cook, Matt Mangano, and Zac Brown. Says Starr of the band's country/rock/bluegrass blend, "We all love the Allman Brothers and Lynyrd Skynyrd and the Stones and the Faces and Hank Williams and Bill Monroe. It's not about what kind of music it is, as long as it's good and it's honest." Blackberry Smoke is rounded out by Richard Turner (bass/vocals), Brit Turner (drums), Paul Jackson (guitar/vocals), and Brandon Still (keyboards).

Whippoorwill10/27/2012
By Rob L
Very Nice!! Old school with great stories. I have seen them 2 times and both were a real treat.One time with the Recvcerend Billy and once in Sturgis. Do yourself a favor and buy all their previous stuff also. Every album is a bit different but each is very good. Great guitar tones, tight rhythm section and the addition of a really tasty keyboard player on this album just add to the perfect fitting of vocals and stories by Charlie. Nice background vocals by the band. A MUST lp to check out!

Best Southern Rock band since Lynyrd Skynyrd. Title track is great and every song on the whole album is fantastic! Already has intense die hard fans that show up hours before the concert to be up front and sing along.
 

SoundStageDirect Glossary

VINYL RECORDS

Vinyl records are able to capture the purest quality of recorded music in true form. This is possible because the initial recording is captured on an analog source (usually tape) for the ultimate in High Fidelity sound, it is then pressed onto virgin vinyl. Analog recordings capture the bottom end (or bass) while adding sweetness to the high end (or treble) better than any digital recording ever could. Analog systems are still commonly used before they are digitally transferred to CD. This means that the sound then is altered in the transfer process when CD's are produced. The word fidelity means accuracy and faithfulness. High Fidelity sound is faithful to the original sound made by the artist, capturing maximum accuracy of what was intended for the listener to hear. Vinyl records capture those sounds for the ultimate High Fidelity listening experience!

180/200 GRAM Vinyl LP

These vinyl records are produced with 180 or 200 grams of high definition premium grade virgin vinyl. This is a higher quality audiophile pressing than the typical vinyl record of 100-120 grams. These limited edition LP's are manufactured with the hi-fi enthusiast in mind. A 180 or 200 gram LP is sometimes also referred to as an audiophile pressing, there is a higher bass response and an even warmer High Fidelity sound. 180 or 200 grams LP's are typically manufactured in limited amounts and are considered collectables, commanding a higher price.

VINYL REISSUES

Typically, a vinyl reissue is a repressing of an original LP, usually extracted from the recording's master-tapes. In some cases, reissues are remastered to lower surface noise and improve overall sonics. Reissues help preserve the music of an original recording, especially when original LPs become unavailable or can no longer be found. Reissues can be pressed on a variety of thickness from 150 gram to 200 gram and offer a great opportunity for records collectors to own many classic recordings.
