New Music Releases - February 1, 2011

I highly recommend former Camper Van Beethoven/Cracker frontman David Lowery and his solo debut, 'The Palace Guards,' Bob Marley's 'Live Forever,' Cowboy Mouth with 'Mardi Gras.'  Vinyl releases include a double LP from Dio 'Live-We Rock,'  Papercuts with 'Do What You Will', Those Darlins with their effort 'Be Your Bro' and Spiritualized's reissue 'Lazer Guided Melodies.'

Bob Marley - Live Forever: The Stanley Theatre, Pittsburgh, PA, September 23, 1980: Super Deluxe Edition (2 CDs/3 LPs)

"Bob’s music has always conveyed a message of hope, unity and love,” says Marley’s widow Rita Marley in a press statement. “It has brought countless people together as it did that night 30 years ago in Pittsburgh. To hear that music today and to be able to share it with a new generation shows that Bob is as relevant today as he was 30 years ago.”

The band did its sound check for the sold-out show while Marley rested backstage. Reports of his performance that night used words such as "energetic" and "spine-tingling."

"Live Forever" is being released on two CDs, three LPs, and digitally and includes his classics "Natural Mystic," "Crazy Baldhead," "No Woman No Cry," "Redemption Song," "Exodus," "Is This Love" and the last song he ever performed live, "Get Up Stand Up."
