ALIVE NATURALSOUND RECORDS TO RELEASE LIVE ALBUM “ALIVE AT THE DEEP BLUES FEST” NOV. 27TH ON CD, DIGITAL & BBQ SAUCE RED COLORED VINYL!
ALBUM INCLUDES LIVE PERFORMANCES FROM ALIVE RECORDING ARTISTS BUFFALO KILLERS, LEE BAINS III & THE GLORY FIRES, RADIO MOSCOW, LEFT LANE CRUISER & MORE!
Earlier this summer Chris Johnson (owner of Bayport BBQ in the Twin Cities’ suburb of Bayport, MN) resurrected his popular Deep Blues Festival for three glorious (sold-out) days of great music, Southern-style BBQ and camaraderie between musicians, fans and friends alike. Far from the corporate sterility of many larger modern music fests, Johnson’s Deep Blues Fest instead successfully revived the communal spirit of late ’60s and early ’70s music gatherings, evoking the vibe of a large summer picnic with family, friends, good food and great music.
The 2012 Deep Blues Fest featured 26 bands from four countries & 16 states. Out of these acts there were seven phenomenal performances from the current Alive roster. Alive At The Deep Blues Fest is the document of these incendiary and unforgettable performances. All 13 tracks were mixed by famed Detroit producer/musician Jim Diamond, who managed to capture the loose and spontaneous feel of live albums produced in the Golden Age of rock’n’roll. Buffalo Killers and Radio Moscow turned in super heavy sets soaked in psychedelia and reverb, while Lee Bains III & The Glory Fires fiercely ripped through their show with a blistering set of songs steeped in Southern rock, R&B, soul, gospel and punk from their critically acclaimed debut LP There Is A Bomb In Gilead – an album that has been helping to define the sounds of The New South. Brian Olive and his backing band melded soulful R&B with technicolor garage-pop for their early daytime set, while the Welsh duo Henry’s Funeral Shoe, Left Lane Cruiser and newcomers John The Conqueror perhaps kept closest to the Deep Blues curriculum with their respectively raunchy and heavily amplified modern interpretations of rural gutbucket Delta Blues.
To get a sense of this intimate yet electrifying festival, grab a copy of Alive At The Deep Blues Fest, invite a bunch of good friends over for some food & drink, and PLAY IT LOUD.
Alive at the Deep Blues Fest will be released November 27th through Alive Naturalsound Records in the following formats: CD, Digital and Black Vinyl with mp3 download card & poster, as well as Limited Edition “BBQ SAUCE RED” Colored Vinyl exclusive to the Bomp mail-order.
Chris Johnson and Alive Naturalsound Records will be throwing a special Alive At The Deep Blues Fest Record Release Show featuring Lee Bains III & The Glory Fires on Sat. Dec. 1st at 8:00pm at Bayport BBQ, 328 5th Ave. N., Bayport, MN
