2, 2009. Half of the tracks were recorded at NCS.
If you are lucky enough to get an early pressing of the
release it comes with the bonus disc filled with some radio
mixes and live nuggets (several of with were also recorded by
Riders of the Purple Sage spent a weekend at NewClear Studios
tracking for an upcoming 2009 release of new material. As well
as being a group of seasoned veterans and crack players these
guys are down to earth folk. It was more of a bar-b-que,
party hangout session with some great tracks being recorded
every now and again. Ah, the beauty of the weekend lock out.
The relaxed atmosphere was well suited for the gang as they
have been touring solid for the past few years, so it was a
nice but productive break. I really look forward to hearing
the finished production as they have some great basics in the
can. A majority of the tunes were written by Dave Nelson with
Robert Hunter (The Dead) providing the words. Johnny and
Michael each contributed a tune to the session. Speaking of
Michael, check out his 3rd solo release "We
Are All One" on Woodstock Records - Nice work Falz! -
