Jason Boland & the Stragglers - High in the Rockies
Got my pre-order copy and it's awesome! A great representation of their current live show, with incredible audio quality. 19 tracks recorded in Steamboat, Ft. Collins, Laramie and Denver. No over-dubbing, all true live tracks. Pretty impessive.
Releases on 4/20.
I strongly recommend picking up a copy or downloading from Itunes.
I'll bet you'd like this live album though....not too much "background" noise at all. The vocals and instruments (specifically the fiddle and dobro) are just amazing, and you get to hear some great live tracks that were never on studio CD's....my favorites being their latest release, Tulsa Time and Gallo Del Ciello.
The CD title is fairly accurate too....I was with them for all 4 recordings and can vouch for that.
kick ass, have all his cds, i booked him to play a bar i was managing at a few years ago so ive got an autographed poster and got to drink it up with the band, also cooked him the best burger he said he had for a long time.
they play longview next thursday i think so ill pick it up at the show!
I've got some friends in Longview that are trying to get me to make it out there for that show....but I just saw them at Billy Bob's on Sat night, and they're playing in Denton and Dallas right about the same time, so I don't know if I'll drive out to Longview yet or not. I'll let you know if I make the trip and maybe we can catch up for a beer.
