Jimmy Page And The Black Crowes'
Trigger HippyTrigger Hippy is a rock band with jam & R&B elements formed by Black Crowes drummer and co-founder Steve Gorman. Multi-platinum recording artist
Joan Osborne - of the Tope 5 single "One Of Us." Also spent time singing for The Dead. Singer-guitarist-keyboardist Jackie Greene who joined The Black
Crowes in later years and also spent time with Phil Lesh & Friends, Gov't Mule, Los Lobos, Taj Mahal, Susan Tedeschi as well as a host of others. Award-winning session players Tom Bukovac (Guitarist) and Nick Govrik (Bassist.)
You can see this as a 'player's band', explains co-founder Steve Gorman, who also co-founded The Black Crowes, but it really is a band, in the true
sense of that word. Vocals are shared by multi-platinum singer Joan Osborne and veteran recording artist Jackie Greene. Rounding out the band are
lead guitarist Tom Bukovac and bassist Nick Govrik, who wrote many of the band's songs.
The Nashville-based quintet's debut album on Rounder Records draws on the strengths of all five, both individually and collectively, and showcases
influences and inspiration from Memphis soul to rock, country and blues. One can sense The Band here, and Little Feat, some Led Zeppelin, and a tent
revival; a full palette. Gorman rightly calls it a rock band that can jam.1. Turpentine

J Roddy Walston & The BusinessNot too many bands would move to Baltimore, MD in search of their big break -- as the city's most famous citizen, John Waters, once put it, No one moves here -- and fewer still would consider making the jump to Charm City from Chattanooga, TN. But J. Roddy Walston and the Business are clearly not your average rock & roll band, and after listening to their self-titled second album (and first for Vagrant Records), this trajectory actually makes some sense. The band's music suggests a meeting of the minds between the Deep South and the East Coast -- Walston's raw, twangy vocals and rollicking piano style and Billy C. Gordon's thick guitar lines cut with sharp interjections of slide, could both come straight from a Tennessee roadhouse, but the heavy stomp of Logan Davis' bass and Steve Colmus' drums is all-beef, no-filler hard rock stomp, the stuff of guys who've spent half their life trying to perfect Led Zeppelin's glorious thud and are within spitting distance of catching it. Put these two sides together, have them spend a few hundred nights playing bars where they struggle to be heard over flying beer bottles and shouts for more bourbon, and you could get something a lot like J. Roddy Walston and the Business.
These ten songs have swagger to spare, but there's little in the way of crowd-pleasing gestures; this band is here to rock but you have to take or leave them on their own terms, and the material is strong enough that plenty of listeners are likely to climb aboard for the ride. Whether they're living on the edge in Brave Man's Death, sharing tales of unsatisfying lovers in Pigs and Pearls, or mixing risky metaphors in Don't Break the Needle, J. Roddy Walston and the Business are a real-deal, roots-conscious hard rock band in an era when such things are believed to have gone the way of the 8-track tape. Picture a band that captures the lean and glorious Southern arrogance of the early Black Crowes and the FTW attitude of Appetite for Destruction-era Guns N' Roses -- all without obviously lifting licks from either act -- and you get one enjoyably butt-kicking surprise of an album.

Gene Clark Sings For You
Produced For Release By Grammy®-Winner, Cheryl Pawelski
Restoration And Mastering By Grammy-Winner, Michael Graves
Liner Notes By John Einarson, Author Of Mr. Tambourine Man: The Life And Legacy Of The Byrds' Gene Clark (Backbeat Books)
Features Previously Unseen Photos.
Gene Clark's musical legacy is most certainly assured as a singer, songwriter
and member of some exclusive company as an inductee to Rock and Roll Hall of Fame, a founder of The
Byrds, and collaborator in groups such as Dillard & Clark, Gene Clark and the Gosdin Brothers, McGuinn
Clark & Hillman and later as the duet partner of Carla Olson (The Textones).
His songs have been covered by Tom Petty & The Heartbreakers, Iain Matthews, Robert Plant & Alison Krauss, The
Rose Garden, and Chris & Rich Robinson of The Black Crowes among many others. As well documented as Clark's career
has been, there have been remarkable discoveries over the years (see Omnivore's Here Tonight: The White Light Demos for example),
but now the Holy Grail of Clark's post-Byrds career is finally about to see the light of day:
"For longtime Gene Clark fans and aficionados, the tracks on this remarkable archival CD are the stuff of legend. Since word
first spread in the 1980s about the discovery of these 1967 recordings on a rare acetate in Liberty Records' vaults, fans have
come to regard Gene Clark Sings For You as nothing less than the Holy Grail of the singer/songwriter's extraordinary body of
work. Shrouded in mystery and the subject of much speculation and conjecture, few have ever had the opportunity to hear these
forgotten gems from one of Gene Clark's most prolifically creative periods. Until now."
Author of Mr. Tambourine Man: The Life And Legacy Of The Byrds' Gene Clark (Backbeat Books)
In addition to the 8 tracks from the Gene Clark Sings For You acetate, recorded in 1967 after he famously left The Byrds, there are an
additional 5 previously unknown tracks from a further 1967 acetate given to the band, The Rose Garden, for recording consideration.
This new compilation also includes a previously unissued demo rescued from a tape in the collection of John Noreen, member of
The Rose Garden. This demo of the song "Till Today" is Clark running through the song for the band who would cut it on their only
album, the 1968 self-titled effort on Atco Records (also being reissued and expanded at the same time as Gene Clark Sings For You).
Released with the full approval and cooperation with both the Estate of Gene Clark and the band, The Rose Garden, Gene Clark Sings
For You is produced for release by Grammy®-winner, Cheryl Pawelski with restoration and mastering by Grammy-winner, Michael
Graves. Liner notes by John Einarson, author of Mr. Tambourine Man: The Life And Legacy Of The Byrds' Gene Clark (Backbeat Books)

Driving Towards The DaylightImport
On May 21, 2012, internationally renowned guitar superstar Joe Bonamassa will release a brand new solo album 'Driving Towards The Daylight' on Provogue Records. 'Driving Towards The Daylight' was produced by Kevin 'Caveman' Shirley (Black Crowes, Aerosmith, Led Zeppelin). This is their seventh collaboration in six years and Joe's 13th album.
Recorded at The Village Recorder in Los Angeles, CA and Studio At The Palms in Las Vegas, NV, 'Driving Towards The Daylight' is a balanced back-to-basics album that highlights Bonamassa's signature style of roots blues with rock-and-roll guts, while honouring the traditions of the original blues musicians.
"We've taken some really traditional old blues songs - the Howlin' Wolf song 'Who's Been Talkin' and the Robert Johnson song 'Stones In My Passway,' and we've tried to imagine how they would do them in a rock context," said Shirley. "It's a very exciting return to the blues in a very visceral way. It's vibrant and it's gutsy and it's really, really rugged."
The album features five Bonamassa-penned originals including the bruising opener 'Dislocated Boy', the road warrior title track (and first single) 'Driving Towards The Daylight', 'I Got All You Need', 'Heavenly Soul' and 'Somewhere Trouble Don't Go'. Other tracks include Bonamassa's versions of Tom Waits' 'New Coat Of Paint', Bill Withers' 'Lonely Town Lonely Street', and 'A Place In My Heart' by Bernie Marsden. On the album closer, Australian rock singer Jimmy Barnes sings lead vocals on his 1987 hit 'Too Much Ain't Enough Love'.
To challenge Joe and move him out of his comfort zone, a unique group of musicians was gathered including Aerosmith guitarist Brad Whitford (guitar), Blondie Chaplin (guitar), Anton Fig (drums and percussion), Arlan Schierbaum (keyboard), Michael Rhodes (bass), Carmine Rojas (bass), Jeff Bova and The Bovaland Brass, Pat Thrall (guitar), and Brad's son Harrison Whitford (guitar).
Brad Whitford, speaking from the studio in Vegas, said, "This is definitely more influenced by the stuff that the guys and musicians in this room love, early '60s English and American rock and blues. I guess we'll never get that out of our system and its fun to come in here and find our own path down that highway."

LION-PRO-M36376xBeth Hart & Joe Bonamassa
Seesaw reunites force-of-nature blues-rock vocalist Beth Hart and guitar hero Joe Bonamassa for a second album of choice covers from various musical eras. As with their first outing, Don't Explain, the project is in collaboration with producer Kevin Shirley (Joe Bonamassa, Led Zeppelin, Aerosmith, Black Crowes). Each of the three principals suggested and selected tracks for the 11-song set list, which mines soulful classics previously made famous by Aretha Franklin, Etta James, Billie Holiday, Donnie Hathaway, Lucinda Williams, Buddy Miles, Tina Turner, Slackwax, Melody Gardot, and Nina Simone.
The one-two punch of Hart's powerhouse vocals and Bonamassa's scorching solos both honors and reinvents the original recordings. They are backed by the same world class band that kept the grooves going on Don't Explain: Anton Fig (drums, percussion), Carmine Rojas (bass), Blondie Chaplin (rhythm guitar, backing vocals and percussion), Arlan Schierbaum (organ, piano). This time out, their mighty sound is augmented by a horn section, with Lee Thornburg on trumpets and trombones, and Ron Dziubla on saxophones.
For Hart and Bonamassa, making music together grew out of the friendship and mutual artistic appreciation they developed after crossing paths on the road numerous times, particularly on the festival circuit in Europe. Bonamassa wanted to do a project with her, and came up with the idea for a soul covers record. Shirley, who's produced 12 of Bonamassa's albums, was enthusiastic, and Bonamassa contacted Hart. "When I got the call that he wanted to do a soul record with me, I figured I'd be the background singer. He said 'no, you're singing lead.'" The chemistry clicked, and Don't Explain was released in 2011, followed now by 2013's Seesaw-in between, both Hart and Bonamassa have toured, recorded solo albums, and reached new career highs.
"What's so cool about these projects is that when Joe and Beth enter the studio, he comes in as a guitar player, and she comes in as a singer," says Shirley. "They're getting together just to play fun music, sing some favorite songs, without the pressure of career issues they might have on solo projects. The point is to pick up and celebrate songs that didn't get their due in the day, and to pay homage to ones that were truly classics. The vibe this time is more upbeat than on Don't Explain, lots of big band horns."1. Them There Eyes
