Share

This week’s releases will give you plenty of new material to lie around in your boxers and break out the rolling papers.

Cypress Hill - Rise Up: RISE UP includes “Armada Latina” featuring Marc Anthony & Pitbull and the incendiary title track, “Rise Up”, which features Rage Against The Machine/ Street Sweeper Social Club’s Tom Morello. The famed guitarist co-wrote and co-produced the song “Rise Up” and appears on a second track titled “Shut `Em Down.” Ingeniously crafted, the collaboration on “Armada Latina” brings forth the strength and presence always commanded by Cypress Hill. The track breathes life into the album in a musically diverse way. “It was great to work with my longtime friends and comrades Cypress Hill on these two monster rock tracks,” says Morello. “Cypress are back with a vengeance!”

Grateful Dead - Crimson, White & Indigo: July 7 1989 JFK Stadium, Philadelphia (3CD/1DVD): The Grateful Dead were enjoying a late-career renaissance in 1989 when the band steamed into Philadelphia on one of the hottest days of the summer to play the last concert ever at John F. Kennedy Stadium. The July 7 show in the City of Brotherly Love highlights the band’s exuberant resurgence, a peak that rivals any that came before it.

Rhino salutes life, liberty, and the pursuit of ‘hippieness’ with a collection that includes every note from this epic show on three CD’s and one DVD. The DVD captures the entire concert, shot from an amazing multi-camera perspective by the same crew that shot the legendary ‘Truckin’ Up To Buffalo’ DVD.

Willie Nelson - Country Music: Willie Nelson goes back to his roots with a songbook of classic Americana. Country Music was recorded in Nashville, TN and produced by T Bone Burnett. Nelson wrote one track on the album, “Man With The Blues” and, with T Bone Burnett, co-arranged three traditional songs, “Satan Your Kingdom Must Come Down,” “I Am A Pilgrim,” and “Nobody’s Fault But Mine.” The album also features many popular old-time/bluegrass/folk songs including Ernest Tubb’s “Seaman’s Blues, Merle Travis’ “Dark As A Dungeon,” and Doc Watson’s “Freight Train Boogie”. Willie Nelson collaborated with many musicians on Country Music including old-time banjo master Riley Baugus, double bassist Dennis Crouch, and T Bone himself, all musicians featured on Raising Sand, the 2009 Grammy® award-winning Album of the Year by Robert Plant and Alison Krauss.

Moby Grape - Moby Grape Live: This is the first official collection of concert recordings by the legendary San Francisco band at its blazing late-Sixties peak, with its original lineup: Jerry Miller, Skip Spence, Bob Mosley, Peter Lewis and Don Stevenson. Moby Grape, in their prime, were one of the Bay Area’s-and America’s-best stage bands, like the Beatles and Rolling Stones in one, with a breathtaking triple-guitar attack and stunning vocal harmonies.

Live is the long-awaited proof. It features more than an hour of dynamite performances from soundboard and broadcast tapes, including tracks from the Avalon Ballroom in 1967 and the band’s complete long-lost set at the Monterey Pop Festival, just a week after Moby Grape came out. There are live versions of the great rare Grape songs “Rounder” and “Looper” and five tracks from a famous Dutch radio show featuring the hard-charging ‘69 lineup of Miller, Mosley, Lewis and Stevenson.
