In September of 2002 a once-in-a-lifetime show was taped at Nashville's historic Ryman Auditorium. Internationally acclaimed Irish group The Chieftains joined with some of Nashville's finest country and bluegrass stars for a stellar performance, titled Down The Old Plank Road. The Chieftains were founded over 40 years ago by front man, Paddy Moloney, and over the years have been instrumental in introducing Celtic folk music to new fans around the world. After watching the DVD, it is easy to see why this group continues to perform to sold-out audiences. They truly enjoy what they are doing, and it is easy to become mesmerized just watching them work their magic. A sad aspect of this project was the death of harpist Derek Bell. He had been with The Chieftains for nearly thirty years and passed away just a few weeks after the concert was filmed. The Chieftains' group has six present members; Paddy Moloney, Martin Fay, Sean Keane, Kevin Conneff and Matt Molloy.

This recording, comprised of two complete Art Ensemble of Chicago albums – Les Stances a Sophie with singer Fontella Bass from 1970 and People in Sorrow from 1969 – offers two very different sides of the group's sound from this key period in their development. Recorded in France and released on the Nessa label in the United States, the two discs show how much in command the AEC were of their strengths even at that early date, though for the record it should be noted that with the exception of Don Moye and Lester Bowie, the trio of Roscoe Mitchell, Joseph Jarman, and Malachi Favors had been playing together since 1965…

The two volumes of Mermaid Avenue, released in 1998 and 2000 and named after the New York street where legendary folk artist Woody Guthrie lived in the 1940s, were collaborations between cult American alt-country/avant-garde rockers Wilco and revered British protest singer Billy Bragg, on which they set to music previously unreleased lyrics by Guthrie. This exhaustive four-disc set features both releases together with a whole new album of previously unreleased songs and the documentary Man in the Sand, which chronicles the project.

Albert King doesn't require much of an introduction, he was one of the 'Three Kings of the Blues' and arguably next to B.B. he was perhaps the most popular of the many genuine blues guitarists to have been adopted by the rock world during the mid-1960s. Albert began playing in the late 40s and made his first recordings in 1953 and it is these early sessions that are the focus of this outstanding collection from Jasmine. Includes tracks "Blues At Sunrise", his fine version of Tampa Red's "Little Boy Blue" and his hit song "Don't Throw Your Love On Me So Strong" plus many other superb tracks. Albert King influenced many artists including Mick Taylor, Eric Clapton, Mike Bloomfield and Stevie Ray Vaughan. This then is Albert King's first tentative steps towards global popularity compiled in chronological order and with fully detailed liner notes.

Label: RockBeat Records

Del Shannon was a consistent hit maker in the early 1960's. Beginning with a #1 smash in Runaway, he continued the chart run with songs like Hats Off To Larry, Hey! Little Girl, Swiss Maid, Little Town Flirt, Handy Man, Keep Searchin', and Stranger In Town. When the British invasion quelled many of his contemporaries who couldn't adapt to the everchanging musical landscape, Shannon managed to keep current and survive. He tried reinventing himself on several occasions, putting his hit formula aside to try out new sounds, namely working with Snuff Garrett, Leon Russell, Tommy Boyce and Bobby Hart, and the Stones producer Andrew Oldham.

Robert Earl Keen has been playing the Texas singer/songwriter circuit for over three decades, and as a guy who often favors the acoustic side of the country and Americana music scenes, it's no kind of surprise that he's crossed paths with the bluegrass music community, and it certainly makes sense that he's a fan. What is a bit of a surprise is not that Keen has decided to cut a bluegrass album, but that the respected tunesmith has chosen to make it a collection of covers rather than writing a new set of songs.

Label: Jazz Essential

Considered one of the three top New Orleans clarinetists of the 1920s (with Johnny Dodds and Sidney Bechet), Jimmie Noone had a smoother tone than his contemporaries that appealed to players of the swing era (including Benny Goodman). He played guitar as a child, and at age 15 took clarinet lessons from Lorenzo Tio, Jr. and Sidney Bechet (the latter was only 13, shockingly enough). Noone developed quickly, and he played with Freddie Keppard (1913-1914), Buddy Petit, and the Young Olympia Band (1916), which he also led. Thanks to European reissue series, Jimmie Noone's recordings are readily available on CD.
