NIEL BROOKS Prairie Fire Deluxe Release Party – THIS SATURDAY, July 14 at 2pm. LIVE music, record collecting, great food and beverage all on tap at The Bohemian Café and Horizon Records.
Join us and meet your friends here. It’s Bastille Day and what better way to celebrate than ditch the yard work and soak up some amazing live acoustic music. Niel plays a free afternoon set in celebration of the stunning re-issue package of Prairie Fire. Live music and a chance to grab this limited edition Vinyl Record/CD combo collectors piece. Available exclusively at Horizon Records.
Special Edition RED VINYL includes a 10-inch Record with 3 tracks from original Prairie Fire Plus 3 bonus tracks plus CD with all of it on CD.
Niel runs the voodoo down for us on this amazing combo deal:
There is a full CD in the packaging with the entire first pressing tracks and the new “deluxe” tracks as well. There’s a lyric sheet (with chords for guitar/piano for us music nerds.) The 10-inch vinyl is 3 tracks from the first pressing (Side A) and 3 tracks from the new (Side B). The only other ‘neat’ thing is that I did a version of Memphis Minnie’s “When The Levee Breaks” …recorded with a 1929 Western Electric microphone in a room corner (just like the old Robert Johnson recordings), using my 1937 Epiphone Olympic guitar (the same that Dave Rawlings uses) … so that recording is pretty much period-correct for the song. It’s the last track on the CD.http://blog.horizonrecords.net/wp-admin/post.php?post=4561&action=edit
