Strictly Discs

There s something special about an artist who seeks out the opportunity to record an album in just two days, and it s even more special when that album is recorded in front of a live audience. On May 31 and June 1, 2014, Rich Robinson invited an intimate group to Applehead Studios in Woodstock, N.Y. to join him as he recorded a new album. More than just bystanders, the fans witnessed the production and actually became a part of the fabric of the record that you re listening to. They were sitting in the studio, just a few feet from Robinson. They interacted with the band, they looked over the producer s shoulder. Beyond the different variables that are hard to control in a live setting, this type of experience creates a very vulnerable environment for the artist. While it might distract some, it seemed to only enhance Robinson s performance and connection with the crowd. Seasoned fans were granted insights into the artist s process that could not have been gleaned through years of listening. Those two days will forever be a part of the aura that is Woodstock. Sure, Robinson is no stranger to the magical town, having recorded solo and Black Crowes music there, but something remarkable happened during these sessions.

Reviews:

This album includes one bonus track Got To Get Better In A Little While .

Eagle Rock Entertainment will be releasing not only his new solo album in 2016, but several newly reimagined re-issues of Robinson s back catalogue. This will be CD and LP reissues of Llama Blues, Paper, Through A Crooked Sun, and Woodstock Sessions. The LP versions will be issued and packaged as colored vinyls: Llama Blues will be released in blue, Paper in red, Through A Crooked Sun in white, and Woodstock Sessions in brown.

These re-issues will lead up to Robinson s yet-to-be-titled new studio album later in 2016.
