Souther…The bonus disc uncovers 15 unreleased tracks, including different versions of every song on the album. Several demos capture Warren Zevon alone at the piano, including a poignant take on “Frank And Jesse James,” a song he wrote while touring with The Everly Brothers…

Jeff Beck – Performing This Week:Live At Ronnie Scott’s (CD) ;
In 2007 Jeff Beck performed a series of concerts at the renowned Ronnie Scott’s club in London….This CD features performances recorded across the different nights and presents what Jeff Beck considers the best version of each track.

Chris Wood – ‘Vulcan’ (CD);
Recorded just after the demise of Traffic in 1974, “Vulcan” was begun for Island records but shelved in 1978. The sessions featured contributions from Steve Winwood and members of The Wailers, along with a live recording of Traffic performing the title track in 1974, but due to a change in musical fashion with the advent of Punk, the album failed to see the light of day. Now, 25 years later, and after three years of research and preparation, Esoteric have pieced together the sessions in co-operation with Stephanie Wood to bring you “Vulcan”.

Tracy Chapman – ‘Our Bright Future’ (CD);
Recorded this summer in Los Angeles, the album comprises 11 new songs written by Tracy and co-produced with Larry Klein.

The Grateful Dead – Road Trips Vol. 1 Number 4 (2 CD + Bonus);
The group was feeling totally jazzed when they got back from Egypt, and Bill Graham, who had been on the trip abroad as a spectator, rather than as promoter, wanted to give the band’s hometown fans a taste of the Egypt experience by hosting a series of five shows at Winterland that would include a slide show depicting the group’s amazing adventures in Cairo and beyond……It proved to be magical at Winterland, too, as the crowd joined in clapping the song’s unusual and hypnotic beat. War’s exceptional harmonica player, Lee Oskar, dropped by the last two nights of the run, and the final concert brought a surprise appearance by ex-Quicksilver guitarist John Cipollina. This new Road Trips was culled from the the last two concerts of the series, October 21 and 22, 1978. The limited edition Bonus CD contains a number of other hot numbers from those shows, from a charged “Bertha”>”Good Lovin'” to a typically hot take on the “Estimated Prophet”>”He’s Gone” sequence, as well as one of only three live versions of “If I Had The World To Give” ever performed by the Grateful Dead.

Todd Rundgren – ‘2nd Wind’ (CD);
Out of print for almost two decades…..Todd assembled a stellar band with Roger Powell (Utopia) Ross Vallory (Journey), Prairie Prince (Tubes) Vince Welnick (Grateful Dead/Tubes) and others to recorded “Second Wind.” The album charted and included several radio favourites like the rockers “Public Servant” and “Change Myself”. This is a stunning new remaster from the original Warner Bros. source tapes. Include the original graphics and new liner notes by Rundgren friend Joe Reagoso.

Paul Carrack – I Know That Name (CD);
De plaat bevat twaalf nieuwe liedjes, waarvan het door hemzelf geschreven I Don’t Want To Hear Any More vorig jaar al te horen was op het comebackalbum van The Eagles. Als wederdienst nemen de heren uit die band op Carrack’s eigen versie de achtergrondvocalen voor hun rekening. Een andere opvallende gast is Sam ‘van Dave’ Moore. Het is echter vooral Carrack zelf die de show steelt met zijn blanke soulliedjes met reggae-invloeden.
