Overseen by producer T Bone Burnett, Lost on the River features a recently discovered stash of unfinished Bob Dylan lyrics from the 1967 Basement Tapes era at Big Pink in upstate New York. Dylan’s publisher offered them to Burnett, who assembled Elvis Costello, The Carolina Chocolate Drops’ Rhiannon Giddens, My Morning Jacket’s Jim James, Dawes’ Taylor Goldsmith, and Mumford & Sons’ Marcus Mumford to compose and play music to Dylan’s words. Sessions were held in a professional recording studio, and the roots-based songs vary, depending on where the lead vocalist takes the material.
4-Disc 30th Anniversary Edition featuring the remastered original album, B-Sides, rare mixes & more across 3CDs plus a Blu-ray disc with the full Kick album mixed in Dolby Atmos immersive surround sound by Giles Martin & all the music videos. Housed within DVD sized fan-deluxe packaging including 48-page booklet with interviews, essays & rare photos.
Seven, produced and written with longtime creative partner and husband Ian Devaney, is Lisa Stansfield's first album in nearly a decade. Despite concentrating on her acting career during the intervening years, Stansfield's voice is at full power, with all the elegance and power of her earlier work. The album is simultaneously retro yet fresh-sounding, led by the organic throwback disco of "Can't Dance." Stansfield and Devaney get some expert help from drummer John Robinson and arranger Jerry Hey, session giants who are well known among credit-scanning fans of soul, disco, and crossover jazz. 2014 Deluxe Edition added four bonus tracks.
