Americana Boogie music releases for the week of Nov. 26th from The Radiators, Sweetback Sisters…
3 CD live set that represent the best of each of the final 3 shows at Tipatina’s in New Orleans. The first night was an all acoustic affair mixing Rads originals with covers by Bob Dylan and Jesse Winchester. The last two discs represent a band on a mission, to go out in style and leave nothing on the table. The songs cover the entire 33 year career of the band and include fan favorites and a couple of lesser known Rad’s gems. Altogether the set includes over 3 ½ hours of gritty down home Nawlins’ rock n’ roll that shows just how versatile the band was.
Brooklyn’s favorite country band spreads the holiday cheer with their Country Christmas Sing Along Spectacular. The album begins with “Christmas Boogie” by the Davis Sisters and goes on a genre bending sleigh ride through time with the Stanley Brothers’ “Beautiful Star of Bethlehem” and “Hark the Harold’s Angel’s Sing”, a tribute to Jingle Cats. All the songs are presented with the Sisters’ signature mix of harmony singing, rollicking telecaster and twin fiddling along with a healthy dose of holiday cheer.
