Big news! You can now stream Sonny Landreth’s new live LP, in it’s entirety, via Premier Guitar. Sonny also explains the inner workings of each song, including chord progressions. Tune in and turn it up!
The double LP (vinyl!) / CD is in stores this Friday. “For most of the acoustic set, Landreth played the striking guitar that appears on the album cover. “It’s a Larry Pogreba ‘hubcap’ resonator,” he explains. The guitar was a gift from Mark Knopfler, who played a similar model on “Creole Angel” from Landreth’s South of I-10 album. “For these songs, it appealed to me because it was bright and had some air to the sound, and it compressed in a way I really like.”
“Whenever an artist plays a hometown show, there’s a little more juice in the air. Sonny Landreth’s soon-to-be-released Recorded Live in Lafayette was tracked at the Acadiana Center for the Arts, not far from the bars and clubs where the pioneering slide guitarist cut his teeth, and you can feel the crowd’s energy reflected in the music. Recorded over the course of three nights, the double live album features Landreth’s working trio of bassist David Ranson and drummer Brian Brignac, as well as keyboardist Steve Conn and guitarist Sam Broussard.”
