Melva's Photos: Take 1

When an order came through last year from a Melva Clarida, we were cautiously optimistic that it was THE Melva we'd been looking for since our Kingston Springs Suite journey began over a decade ago. Turns out it was, and getting to know Melva has been one of the absolute highlights of the experience. Besides regaling us with stories about Vince and their adventures with all kinds of folks (from Kris, Shel, and Cash; to Nelson Algren, Lanford Wilson, and Howlin Wolf), Melva also lent us a bin stuffed with tapes, slides, and amazing photos.  We've been furiously digitizing everything, and an early favorite is this never before seen shot of Vince,…

Peter Walker - Live at Third Man Records

Peter Walker's otherworldly performance last summer at TMR was captured in real time, and is now available for pre-order.  There's a brief live taste of "Me And My Lady" (originally on our "Has Anybody Seen Our Freedoms" release) to intrigue, but the entire live LP - including 3 tunes performed on a specially tuned piano! - will amaze and entertain.  Special thanks to Mr. Blackwell for deeply digging "Freedoms", and for making this dream a reality.


KINGSTON SPRINGS SUITE LOVE (Rolling Stone, Aquarium Drunkard, AV Club, The Boot, MOJO!)

With the release of The Kingston Springs Suite a mere 4 days away, the appreciation society is gaining momentum.  James Sullivan's feature in Rolling Stone, and Jason Patrick Woodbury's definitive piece in Aquarium Drunkard both appeared this week, renduring us speechless...until now.  For the streamers in our midst, there's now an exclusive stream (and nice words) over at A.V. Club, and "Bessie, That's A Lie" has exclusively premiered via The Boot. And then there's the **** review in MOJO by the wonderful Michael Simmons, pictured above in all it's blurry glory.
