We Walk This Road Vinyl LP

Double Vinyl LP edition of We Walk This Road, the 2011 release from Robert Randolph & The Family Band.  Robert Randolph hired T-Bone Burnett to produce his latest album and to educate Randolph on the secular blues music that he was never allowed to listen to as a child.  Take Randolph and his Family Band's instrumental prowess and throw it into the deep blues and you have an amazing combination.  Randolph and his band are young men discovering a fresh new terrain, so whether it's Blind Willie Johnson'sI f I Had My Way sending Randolph to the Mississippi Delta with guest Ben Harper, or John Lennon's I Don't Wanna Be a Soldier Mama, with guitarist Doyle Bramhall II, it all comes out with a blistering intensity that's hard to replicate.  Prince's Walk Don't Walk has a restrained funk to its pop-friendly production.  Bob Dylan's Shot of Love sounds like the heavens opening with Randolph synching things up to his gospel roots.  The originals, written with Burnett, fit in nicely alongside this roots exploration.  Dry Bones is excellent modern electric blues. - iTunes
