Lynne goes deluxe, live

Wednesday, August 8, 2012 – Shelby Lynne will release a special deluxe edition of "Revelation Road" on Oct. 16 on her own EVERSO Records.

In addition to the original record, the collection will include a second disc, "Live At McCabe's," marking Lynne's first-ever live album, plus a Live in London DVD featuring Lynne's concert shot at Union Chapel, London on Feb. 25 and a DVD containing Jason Harter's exclusive documentary on the making of "Revelation Road," one limited edition picture postcard, and five bonus acoustic tracks.

"Live At McCabe's' was recorded on May 19, the final night of a sold-out two-night stand. Although it is included in the deluxe edition of "Revelation Road," the 18-track "Live At McCabe's" can also be purchased on its own, in digital format only, beginning Oct. 16.

Between The Rows, a previously unreleased song, is one of five bonus acoustic tracks included in the deluxe edition of "Revelation Road." Also featured are stripped-down, previously unreleased versions of I'll Hold Your Head and Heaven's Only Days Down The Road (songs that appeared on "Revelation Road"), That's What It Means (a song that was exclusive to the vinyl edition) and It Ain't Your Land Mama (a song that was an iTunes exclusive). Each of the five bonus tracks will be accompanied by stories from Lynne's life, written in her own words and told in the frank manner that's a hallmark of her live shows.

CD reviews for Shelby Lynne

I Can't Imagine CD review - I Can't Imagine
Shelby Lynne really needs to figure out who she is if she ever wants to be something more than the answer to the trivia question "What artist won a Grammy for best new artist after releasing 6 albums over 12 years?" Is she a country singer? Blues? Is she Dusty Springfield reincarnated? Why can't she find a style and stick with it?" That's what they say anyway, but maybe they're wrong. Maybe Shelby figured out a long time ago who she was and how she wanted to sing. »»»
I Am Shelby Lynne (Deluxe Version) CD review - I Am Shelby Lynne (Deluxe Version)
The ironies surrounding Shelby Lynne's sixth album, 1999's "I Am Shelby Lynne," were as thick as mutant kudzu at the time. After a quintet of albums that garnered Lynne a ton of peer respect and negligible sales, the singer/songwriter extricated herself from a Nashville star machine that seemed determined to sculpt her talent in its witless image. Lynne moved to California, reinvented herself as herself, enlisted the talents of producer Bill Bottrell »»»
Revelatiom Road Deluxe Edition
It's been 14 years since Shelby Lynne released her soulful, country-tinged album "I Am Shelby Lynne." And over the course of that time, Lynne has had her share of ups and a few creative downs. However on this latest (reissued here with bonus tracks, a live club recording and a second live disc from London plus a DVD about the making the disc), Lynne tends to go into another soulful but equally roots-y realm on the opening title track. It's not a surprise she taps into this »»»
Editorial: Walking the talk – When names like Hank Williams, Johnny Cash, Waylon and the Hag are invoked, you're talking hard core country. These are the touchstones of country , the guys who made country music what it was and still is (or maybe can be). When these folks would sing about being down-and-out and the rough-and-tumble, they knew of what they were singing about. Fast forward a few years to the country singers of today. »»»
Concert Review: Evans brings the cheer – What's a country song without drinking? Morgan Evans seems to have gotten the missive loud and clear as a good chunk of his songs incorporate libations into the mix. And when the Australian-bred singer isn't confronting drinking, he's dealing with matters of the heart, but in keeping with the positive attitude he purveyed, love is most... »»»
Concert Review: Lambert smiles, dances the night away – Miranda Lambert didn't perform "Tin Man," one of her best, but also one of her saddest songs during this Wildcard tour stop. It's a song sung from the perspective of one who is sad that she has a heart that can be broken. That's not the current condition of Lambert's heart, though. She's apparently in a good... »»»
