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).

CD reviews for Shelby Lynne
Shelby Lynne has always been ahead of her time. The cover for this eponymous album, her 13th solo album and first since 2015's "I Can't Imagine," appears to be another example of her prescience. Though it had to be put together long before the 2020 Covid-19 pandemic, it shows her wearing a facial mask and a look of fear. Coincidence, no doubt, but an eerie one.
Don't worry though, this is not a collection of songs about social distancing and searching for Charmin. »»»
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)
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 »»»
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: White makes the case for himself, no matter how dark the music
John Paul White opined with a glint in his eyes that his songs were not of the uplifting variety. In fact, they were downright dark. How else to explain "The Long Way" with the line "long way home back to you." Or "James," a song inspired by his grandfather who suffered from dementia.
But lest you think that the Alabama... »»»
