JEFF LANG with THE YEARLINGS
TRINITY SESSIONS ANNOUNCES THE RETURN OF JEFF LANG TOURING HIS NEW LIMITED EDITION VINYL RARITIES RELEASE. Music at 8pm Doors open at 7.30pm. Licensed bar available from 7pm with food at interval by Little Seeds Catering.
Jeff Lang says;
“A few years back I was touring in Europe and this guy would show up at various concerts. He was always full of energy, asking a lot of insightful questions about specific songs, even showing up a couple of times bearing gifts of recorded music - a Big Bill Broonzy LP, an album with Blind Willie Johnson on one side and an interview with his widow on the other, the first Sweeney's Men album. Always on vinyl, always the good stuff. A music fan.
Turns out he was secretly planning on entering the waters of the record business and he's started up a vinyl record company called Redhair Records. I'm flattered that for his first foray he wanted to press an LP of rarities from my career thus far. I had a trawl through the collection and turned up some good stuff - a couple of live songs at the late, lamented Continental in Melbourne from the weekend after recording the Everything Is Still album; a previously forgotten song co-written with Tim Hall and recorded at the sessions for my first album Ravenswood in 1994; an alternate take of a stomping rock 'n' roll song from the sessions for Carried In Mind; a live version of Some Memories Never Die which rises and falls like the tide recorded in Sydney in 2006.
I'm doing a run of solo shows to get this LP out there into folks hands, hope to see you there.”
Don't miss your chance to buy one of these ultra rare goodies at one of the shows on the vinyl launch tour.
